The Creed of Imam Al-Tahawi
The commentary was very informative and well-researched. It is well written, and enjoyable to read. It’s a good read for non-Muslims who want to understand what majority of Muslim believe in.
And my copy is autographed ; Because of the similarities, I would highly recommend Imam Abu Hanifa’s Al-Fiqh Al-Akbar Explained as an advanced “commentary” on this particular translation. That and the permanent absence of a true guide and living example were all reasons to codify traditional creed into written formulas.
Sheikh Hamza’s commentary and notes are also essential. All [of it] is from our Lord. We loathe those who loathe them, and we only mention their merits. As the Mufti of Bahrain, Dr. This is a crreed book of aqeedah Islamic theology that takes our creed step-by-step.

It is a very deep book and my teacher states that it is a book that is meant to be taught, not just read passively.
What is the Creed of Imam al-Tahawi in summary? However the nature of the text is such that it should only be studied with a teacher.
