Hashiyah Al-Muwaffaq 'Ala Lum'ah Al-Muwaffaq: A Commentary on Lum'ah al-I'tiqad of Imam Muwaffaq al-Din Ibn Qudamah al-Maqdisi - Softcover
Author: Shaykh Muwaffaq al-Din Yusuf bin Sadiq al-Hanbali
Publisher: Al-Madrasah Al-Hanbaliyyah
No concise work of the Atharī ‘aqīdah has gathered more prominence throughout the ages than Lum‘ah al-I‘tiqād al-Hādī ilā Sabīl al-Rashād. Written in the 7th century by one of the most notable scholars of the Ḥanbalī madhab, Shaykh al-Islām Muwaffaq al-Dīn Ibn Qudāmah al-Maqdisī. This short but comprehensive work covers a range of creedal topics from the attributes of Allāh, His Kalām and Qadar, to the concepts of innovation, belief in the Day of Judgment and matters related to the Prophet Muḥammad and his companions.
Hashiyah al-Muwaffaq 'ala Lum'ah al-Muwaffaq attempts to correct this divergence and seeks to explain the text according to the intent of Syaykh al-Islam Ibn Qudamah, restoring it back in line with the methodology of the true Ahl al-Hadith. The commentor, Syaykh Yusuf bin Sadiq al-hanbali, is one of few traditional Hanbalisyaykhs who has studied under both senior scholars from within Jami'ah al-Azhar al-Sharif and outside of it. By presenting this commentary, we hope the reader becomes well acquainted with the true Athari-Hanbali 'aqidah and is then able to engage with the more intermediate works of this madhhab.
