HomeSufficiency In Creed

This is a translation of the classic treatise Lum’at-ul-‘Itiqad (Sufficiency in Creed) of the great Imam, Abu Muhammad Muwaffaq-ud-Deen Ibn  Qudamah Al-Maqdisi, may Allah have mercy on him.


In this book, Imam Ibn Qudamah presents the Creed of the Salaf as is the custom of  the scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah  in every century – to preserve the  authentic Creed by way of writing it down in books and spreading it. So this Creed  became well known amongst the scholars and studied in the gatherings of knowledge. In fact the treatise continues to be studied and reviewed by students of knowledge  throughout the world.


This book was explained in recent times by Imam Muhammad bin Salih Al- ‘Uthaimeen and assigned for study by the Board of Educational Institutes in Saudi  Arabia. All footnotes and hadith verifications were extracted in abridged form from  Ashraf bin ‘Abdil-Maqsood’s checking of Imam Ibn Al-‘Uthaimeen’s explanation of  “Sufficiency in Creed.”  We ask Allah to make this treatise a benefit for the students of knowledge to study  and acquire understanding of their Religion.
