About The Book

The doctrinal creed of the largest denomination of Muslims that came to be known as ‘The Adherents to the Sunna and the Congregation’ found staunch defenders in the school of Abū Manṣūr al-Māturīdī (d.333/945), who codified the theology of ‘the Greatest Leader’ (al-Imām al-Aʿẓam) Abū Ḥanīfa.

This work is a comparative translation and survey of the bullet points of the most important Māturīdī authorities and their doctrinal textbooks with a bio-bibliography of Māturīdī scholarship in descending order of antiquity.

It highlights their resolutions (taqrīrāt) as the defining parameters of Sunnism and can serve both as an introductory synopsis of the great themes of Maturidism and as a tool for the study of the school’s theology from its early founders to our time.
