Buy book via: Sunnipubs  or  Meccabooks

Notable Points:

  • Imam al Bayhaqi was born 277 years prior to birth of Ibn Taymiyya.
  • His usage of the term “companions of hadith”, showing that Ashari school to which he belonged was a continuation of the Ahl al Hadith and not a separate sect as claimed by the neo-Salafis today.
  • His classification of two modes of interpretation i.e. tafwid and tawil.
  • His interpretation of Istiwa, Nuzul, Yad, Wajh, etc by detailed negation of any similarity with creation.
