This booklet is a translation of ‘Faith in Allah’ from the book, Sharh Hadeeth Jibra’eel’ by Shaikh ibn Saleh al-Uthaimeen with additional quotes from Aqeedah at-Tawheed’ and ‘Mujmal Aqeedah as-Salaf’ by Shaikh Salih ibn Fawzan ibn Abdullah al-Fawzan.

Translated and Compiled by:  Shawana A. Aziz

Aqeedah is Tawqeefiyah (which means that) beliefs cannot be established except with a proof from the Sharee’ah (religious texts) – there is no room for opinion and speculation. The sources of Aqeedah are therefore restricted to what is mentioned
in the Book of Allah and the Sunnah (Ahadeeth of the Prophet) because no one is more knowledgeable than Allah about the obligations due to Him and what He is free from – and after Allah – no one knows more about Allah other than His messenger (sallallahu alehe wassalam).

The correct Aqeedah is the foundation upon which the religion is based. It is the correct Aqeedah with which the actions are set aright as the Most High said:

So, whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.

[Soorah al-Kahf (18): 110]

Indeed, it has been revealed to you (O Muhammad ) as it was to those (Prophets) before you, ‘If you join others in worship with Allah, (then) surely (all) your deeds will be in vain, and you will certainly be among the losers.

[Soorah az-Zumar (39): 65]

So, worship Allah (alone) by performing religious deeds sincerely for His sake. Surely, the religion is for Allah only.

[Soorah Zumar (39): 2]
