Explanation of al-'Aqeedatu at-Tahaawiyyah Shaykh 'Ali al-Halabi
Assalaam alaykum

I've begun translating Shaykh 'Ali al-Halabi's compilation explanation of al-'aqeedatu at-Tahaawiyyah, named ar-Riyaadh un-Nadiyyah, and publishing it on my blog

In it the Shaykh compiles the comments of Imaams al-Albaani, Bin Baaz, Muhammad bin Abdil 'Azeez bin Maani, Ahmed Shaakir and others, may Allaah have mercy upon them all, and makes beneficial additions of his own

My intention is to translate it bit-by-bit - so a serial translation where I publish a short excerpt each week/fortnight

So far, I've translated Shaykh 'Ali's introduction and 2 out of 3 parts of Ibn Maani's introduction

Shaykh 'Ali's intro is here:http://wp.me/p2LMzX-1A
Shaykh bin Maani's introduction 1/3 is here http://wp.me/p2LMzX-1D
Shaykh bin Maani's introduction 2/3 is here http://wp.me/p2LMzX-1H

May Allaah grant me sincerity and the success to finish the entire work.
Aqeel Ahmed al-Hindee

Introduction to the 'Aqeedah - Shaykh 'Ali al-Halabi may Allaah preserve him
Introduction to al-Aqeedatu at-Tahaawiyyah
Shaykh Ali Hassan al-Halabi (may Allaah preserve him)[1]

To Proceed: The text of al-Aqeedatu at-Tahaawiyyah, that concerns the fundamental principles of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah, is from the most important methodological books that the people of knowledge from the Salafees still give importance to and teach.[2]
The Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah said in al-Kaafiyatus Shaafiyah fi Intisaar lil firqatin Naajiyah (no. 1443 with my checking), citing the names of the Salafee scholars who have written the fundamental principles of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah:
And look to the satisfying saying of at-Tahaawee and leave it from the distortion of the liars.

When looking into the text, I found that a number of our Mashayakh from before and after have important notes and precise footnotes that make it more accessible, so I saw fit to gather them in one place, taking care of precision quoting on the one hand and explaining and clarifying[3] on the other.
And the gathered notes in this work belong to the following respected Mashayikh

1. Ahmad Muhammad Shaakir (d. 1377AH)
2. Muhammad bin Abdul Azeez bin Maani (d. 1375AH)
3. Abdullah bin Humayd (d. 1402AH)
4. Abdul Azeez bin Abdillah bin Baaz (d. 1420)
5. Muhammad Naasir ud-Deen al-Albaani (d. 1420)
In addition to other clarifying comments that emphasise what has been said made by some other Mashayikh who have taken care over this beneficial text.
I saw to use Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdul Azeez bin Maanis copy as a basis as it is the most precise and complete transcript as he wrote an introduction for it, a biography for the author and the names of some of the explanations of it. For this reason, I have made these introductions a preface to ar-Riyaadh an-Nadiyyah[4].

On top of this, I have, and all praise is due to Allaah, further knowledge-based additions and given additional points of benefit which I have saved for, if Allaah the Noble aids me with his Excellence, another book: An-Nukat as-Salafiyyah ala sharh il Aqeedatu Tahawiyyah lil Imaam Ibn Abil Izz al-Hanafee asking Allaah the High for completion, and generosity by way of a good ending.

And may peace and salutations be upon our prophet Muhammad and upon his family and companions. And our final prayer is that all praise is due to Allaah, Lord of all that exists.

Introduction to al-'Aqeedatu at-Tahaawiyyah - Shaykh bin Maani' - Part 1 - The Method
An Introduction to al-Aqeedatu at-Tahaawiyyah

(The Methodology of Ahlus Sunnah in Authoring Books in Aqeedah[1])

Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Azeez bin Maani[2]

All praise is due to Allaah, and may salutations be upon the messenger of Allaah, his family, friends and whosoever follows his guidance.

To proceed:

These are beneficial footnotes we have written about the noble Salafee aqeedah that was written by the Imaam and allaamah Ahmad bin Muhammad at-Tahaawee, may Allaah have mercy upon him, that will benefit the seekers and illuminate the way for those seeking guidance.

Prior to that, I thought to mention some valuable works, like an introduction, to these footnotes taken from the speech of Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allaah have mercy upon him. He said,

From the affairs of those who author in the field of aqeedah that concentrate on the belief of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah is that they pen that which distinguishes Ahlus Sunnah from the non-believers and innovators.

They speak of affirming the attributes [of Allaah]; that the Quraan is the uncreated Speech of Allaah; that He, the Most High, is seen in the Hereafter, as opposed to the belief of the Jahmiyyah from the Mutazilah and other than them.

They mention that Allaah creates the actions of the slaves; that He wants all that exists and that that which He wills is and that which He does not will is not as opposed to the Qadariyyah from the Mutazilah and other than them.

They mention issues relating to the names[3] and rulings; the promise of Paradise and Fire and that the believer does not commit disbelief simply by committing a sin and does not reside in the Fire forever as a result, to the contrary of what the Khawaarij and Mutazilah believe.

They establish the position regarding emaan affirming the promise of the Fire for those who commit major sins, to the contrary of the Murjiah.

They discuss the leadership of the 4 Rightly-guided Khulafaa and their virtues, in opposition to the views held by the Raafidah and other than them.[4] This is the end of the speech of Shaykh al-Islaam, may Allaah have mercy upon him.

His saying, They mention issues relating to the names and rulings refers to, as he explains in another part, that the people differed with regards to the names and rulings i.e. the names of the religion like Muslim, mumin [believer], kaafir [non-believer] and faasiq [sinner] and the rulings pertaining to each respective group in the worldly affairs and the Hereafter.

The Mutazilah conform with the view of the Khawaarij in their rulings regarding the hereafter, not the worldly life so they do not deem the blood and wealth lawful as the Khawaarij do.

Regarding the names, the Mutazilah have introduced a station between 2 stations [between emaan and kufr] which is something only they do. As for their other sayings, others share with them in them.

Introduction to al-'Aqeedatu at-Tahaawiyyah Part 2 - Imaam at-Tahaawi (Shaykh bin Maa
An Introduction to al-Aqeedatu at-Tahaawiyyah

The Author of this Beneficial Salafi Aqeedah Imaam at-Tahaawi

Shaykh Muhammad bin Abdil Azeez bin Maani[1]

He is the Imaam, al-Allaamah Abu Jafar Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Salaam at-Tahaawi al-Azadi an Imaam of great standing, well-known in all parts, whose mention is oft within the papers [books of knowledge]. He was born in 290AH and it has been said 230AH.

He learnt, firstly, under his maternal uncle al-Mizzi the companion of Imaam ash-Shaafii upon the mathhab of Imaam ash-Shaafii. He then became Hanafi[2] and gained knowledge through the Hanafi mathhab.

He was, may Allaah have mercy upon him, like the rest of the senior Imaams - who never took the way of those who blindly follow those who have no insight in understanding rulings. However, in the fundamental principles of the Shariyyah that he adhered to conformed to the fundamentals that Imaam Abu Haneefah based his mathhab upon. For this reason, when Ibn al-Qayyim mentioned a group of the people of knowledge in an-Nooniyah, he said[3],

There is not from those I previously mentioned, from the Hanbalis a single one responsible

Rather, all of them, by Allaah are from the party of Ahmad, For their fundamental principles and his are the same.

He wrote, may Allaah have mercy upon him, many famous works, such as Maaani al-Aathaar [the meanings of the narrations] and Mushkil al-Aathaar [The Difficult Narrations] and other than these.

He died in 321AH.

He is connected to the town of Tahaa, in the lowest region of Egypt, may Allaah the High have mercy upon him.[4]

[2] See an-Nathaair, pp98-99, by Shaykh Bakr Abu Zayd, may Allaah pardon him.
