This course focusses on the ‘aqīdah part from the book al-Ghunyah lil-Ṭālibī Ṭāriq al-Ḥaqq. Although the book is widely known by people and attributed to Sidi Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qādir al-Jīlānī it is not the most authentic source for his views, due to differences and some problematic statements found in the various editions of the book. In this course the ‘aqīdah section from al-Ghunyah will be taught by Shaykh Yūsuf bin Ṣādiq al-Ḥanbalī in a critical way, comparing its relevant ‘aqīdah sections to what is found in Al-Fuyūḍāt al-Rabbāniyyah; this in order to verify and amend what is present in al-Ghunyah. The aim of this study is to realise a wholistic and true understanding of the ‘aqīdah of this great and important Ḥanbalī scholar.
