The ‘Aqeedah Of Ibn Qudaamah (And A Refutation Of The Ash’ariyyah)

Ibn Qudaamah (d. 620) said:

“The way of the salaf is to have eemaan (faith) in the Names and Attributes of Allaah that He has described himself with in His revelation, or upon the tongue of His Messenger (saw), without increasing nor decreasing in it, nor exceeding the limits, nor explaining them (i.e. like the Mu”tazilah, Ash’ariyyah, Jahmiyyah etc.), nor making ta’weel (interpretation) of them in a way that opposes the dhaahir (aparent) meaning.”

[Dhammut Ta’weel, of Ibn Qudaamah al-Maqdisee, p. 11]
