Sharh us Sunnah

The scholars have a saying, that “the nobility of a knowledge, depends upon the nobility of what is being studied”. The basis of Aqeedah revolves around the belief of Allah and knowing Him, the Creator, the Greatest, the only One worthy of our worship, therefore there can be no more noble knowledge than that of Aqeedah.

For many of us our knowledge of what we believe as Muslims is very superficial and basic, therefore we are sometimes unable to explain our beliefs and we are not decisive in what we are meant to believe. So questions such who is Allah? How can we worship Him? How can we know about Him? Why did He send the Messengers? Why do we need revelation? How was the revelation sent to us? Remain un-answered in our minds.
