Books of Aqeedah – 1

Books of Aqeedah
Part 1

Ever since the beginnings of deviation and innovation, the scholars of Ahl Us Sunnah never let an innovation or deviation that was espoused about the pure islamic aqeedah go without a rebuttal. Therefore we always saw the Sunni ‘ulemaa write books and letters and treatises on the very foundational aspects of our religion and the beliefs that a muslim has to have in order to attain salvation. The following are books that the scholars wrote which contained the proper creed and aqeedah of Ahl us Sunnah wal Jama’ah. The following is a partial list that only contains the more popular books of aqeedah which are currently being published and in print. I took this list from the Light Upon Light: Fundamentals of Faith 102seminar taught by Abu Ammar Yasir Qadhi with the AlMaghrib Institute. As mentioned in the booklet, these are only books that have been published and is an incomplete list. If we were to include all the books here this list could possible double and triple to the least if not more. And including books that are lost would add an even higher number to this. Also the books mentioned here are only upto the 7th century Hijree. Past this point we have multitudes of books and treatises by some of the most eminent schoalrs like Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibnul Qayyim, Adh Dhahabee, and the list goes on and on. My next post will include another list, which along with this list could be over a 100 books, inshaAllah.

A few points to note about this list are that this is a partial list, a more complete list will be posted in a continuation of this post, and might include books past the 7th century insha’Allah. A absolutely complete list is not in my research capabilities and I would have to ask a lot of scholars and students of knowledge to help with that (Make dua’a that Allah give me the ability to make this available in english, as I am sure its already available in arabic). Secondly, just like any book of hadeeth with isnaads (except for the the Saheehayn, the two Saheehs, Saheeh Bukhaaree and Muslim) there are inauthentic narrations contained within these. It would be a mistake to ascribe these inauthentic narrations to the creed of Ahl Us Sunnah. Another post will follow listing the sources of Islamic aqeedah insha’Allah, until then you can read this wonderful article by Shaykh Naasir al Aql about the Sources, books, methodology, and principles of Islamic aqeedah. As stated by Imaam Malik (d. 179 AH), “Everyone after the Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam will have his sayings accepted and rejected – not so the Prophet sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam.[Irshaad al-Saalik 227/1, Jami Bayaan al-Ilm 91/2]
