Read from April 29, 2011 to March 16, 2015

An essential read for all Muslims (and all interested non-Muslims) - it covers succinctly and comprehensively the fundamental creed/doctrine of Sunni Islam. This is an essential text that should ideally be studied under a qualified teacher with an unbroken chain of teaching authority and transmission back to the original author (Imam al-Tahawi) as it is scant on commentary and elaborations. I'd highly recommend the reading and study of this text for all concerned Muslims - in fact if you read or study only a handful of Islamic books in a lifetime then this has to be one of the essential short-listed texts that makes that list of 'a handful'.
