The ‘Aqīdah of the Salaf and People of Ḥadīth
Number of classes: 20 (1 hour per class)
In this course the well-known text by al-Imām Abū ‘Uthmān al-Ṣābūnī titled ‘Aqīdah al-Salaf wa Aṣḥāb al-Ḥadīth, is taught and explained by Shaykh Yūsuf b. Ṣādiq Al-Ḥanbalī.
In this book Imām al-Ṣābūnī penned down, in a clear and concise way, the ‘aqīdah of the Salaf, the people of ḥadīth and the Imāms of the Muslim Ummah, mentioning the āyāt, aḥādīth and āthār they rely upon.
Unfortunately, this work has in recent times been used by the Salafī cult as a means to propagate their corrupt ‘aqīdah. They have distorted the text by either explaining away clear statements or mistranslation, thereby altering the intended meaning of the author.
The lessons consist of a reading of the Arabic text and English translation, this is then followed by an explanation of the lines and correcting mistakes in the translation. The student will learn the ‘aqīdah as intended by the author, become familiar with the various evidences and the correct methodology of the People of ḥadīth in ‘aqīdah.
This course has ended, completion is through recordings.
All the classes are in English.
Upon completion of the course an ijāzah is handed out.
