In this book, we present the classical treatise on Creed of Imaam Ibn Qudaamah Al-Maqdisee, rahimahullaah, known as Lum’at-ul-’Itiqaad, which is studied all over the Muslim world. Imaam Muhammad bin Saalih Al-’Uthaimeen,  rahimahullaah, has provided an in depth explanation for the points touched on by the author in a clear and simple  manner. Furthermore, the narrations mentioned in the book have been verified and lengthy and extensive footnotes  have been provided to make this book a valuable source of reference.

Shaikh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-’Uthaimeen said in his introduction to this book: ‘This is a brief commentary of the  book ‘Lum’at-ul-‘Itiqaad”, written by Abu Muhammad ‘Abdullaah bin Ahmad Ibn Qudaamah Al-Maqdisee (rahimahullaah),  who was born in Sha’baan in 541H in a village from the districts of Nablis (present-day Palestine) and who died on  the day of ‘Eed-ul-Fitr in 620H.

In this book, the author (rahimahullaah) gathered together the main points of the Islaamic Creed (‘Aqeedah). For  this reason, the Board of the Educational Institutes assigned this book to be studied and taught during the second  semester of the first year of study, so that it may serve as a pillar upon which one can establish his Creed at  this stage.

Because I saw the importance of this book in terms of the topics it touches upon, its methodology and the lack of  there being any explanation for it, I became determined, while seeking assistance from Allaah and hoping that He  grant me correctness in intention and action, to put forth some words on it, in the attempt to clarify its  ambiguous parts, explain its meanings and bring to light its main points.’

No doubt this book is of great importance for the Muslim with regard to establishing the correct Creed. This book  is deserving of being taught and studied so that it may serve as a foundation for both the students of knowledge  and the common Muslims. The topics touched upon by the author relate to the authentic Creed and Methodology, which  all Muslims are obligated ot have knowledge of. Consequently, we encourage everyone to purchase a copy of this  magnificent book.
