The Beliefs of the Ashʿarīs: In a Calm Dialogue with the Specious Arguments of their Opponents – Answering Safar al-Hawali: Part 1

To proceed, for indeed a researcher has written a book in which he clarifies – according to his claim – the creedal methodology of the Ashʿarīs, and he has cast them out of the category of Ahl al-Sunnah and classified them as being from the people of innovation. He has deepened mutual hatred and disagreement between Muslims and by doing so he thinks that he is drawing closer to Allah the Exalted, seeing as – in his own opinion – he is clarifying the truth of the Ashʿarī school and fulfilling the obligation of giving victory to the Book and the Sunnah; by revealing their astrayness and deviation. He says that he is a specialist in the science of theology, firmly grounded in the Book and the Sunnah and the way of the Pious Predecessors.
