 Al-^Aqidah An-Nasafiyyah

Translation and Commentary

 by Riad Nachef

 The astute Hanafi scholar and authority of Hadith Abu Hafs Najmuddin ^Umar Bin Ahmad Bin Luqman An-Nasafiyy (461AH-537AH) said:

 The people of truth said: The realities of things exist firmly and knowing them-- contrary[1] to what the Sophists[2] say-- is established.

  The reasons of knowledge for the creations are three the sound senses, the truthful news and the mind. The senses are the hearing, the sight, the olfaction (smell), the taste and the touch. With each of these senses one encounters that which it was created for.[3]

Revised Translation and Commentary

By Riad Nachef

Ramadan 29, 1426 AH

 The great scholar, Hujjat-ul-lslam, Abu Ja^far al-Warraq at-Tahawi (239-321AH) [1], may Allah have mercy on him, while he was in Egypt said:  

This is an elucidation of the beliefs of ahl-as-Sunnah wa al-Jama^ah, according to the school of the jurists of this religion, Abu Hanifah an-Nu^man ibn Thabit al-Kufi, Abu Yusuf Ya^qub ibn Ibrahim al-Ansari and Abu ^Abdillah Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ash-Shaybani, may Allah accept the deeds of all of them, and what they believe regarding the fundamentals of the religion and their faith in the Lord of all the Worlds.

Fasting the month of Ramadan is an obligation and a great worship.  It is among the best acts of obedience and among the greatest deeds, and in Fasting there is great reward.  Imam al-Bukhariyy related the Qudsiyy hadith that the Prophet said Allah said:

كُلُّ حَسَنَةٍ بِعَشْرِ أَمْثَالِهَا إلى سَبْعِمِائةٍ ضِعْفٍ إلا الصّيامَ

فإنَّه لى و أنا أِجْزِى بِه

which means:  <<The reward of every good deed is multiplied from ten up to seven-hundred times--except that of the Fasting--which is usually done in sincerity and will be multiplied by as many times as Allah wills.>>  One of the doors of Paradise, named ar-Rayyan, is specified for those Muslims who used to fast in this world.  On the Day of Judgment it will be opened, and those who used to fast in obedience to Allah will be called to enter through that door.  Then ar-Rayyan will be closed, and no others will enter through it.

The month of Ramadan is the ninth month of the lunar year.  It is the best month of the year, as the night of al‑Qadr in Ramadan is the best night of the year.  Fasting became an obligation on the Muslims in the second year after the emigration.  Prophet Muhammed fasted Ramadan for nine years after which he died.

The ^Aqidah Of Ibn ^Asakir

I begin with the name of Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.  I praise Him and I seek His generosity and forgiveness. I humbly ask Him to raise the rank of Prophet Muhammad and protect his nation from what he feared for them.  I profess that no one is God except Allah, and I reaffirm my belief about Allah as beautifully stated by the famous Shafi^iyy scholar, Shaykh Fakhrud-Din Ibn ^Asakir, who died in 620 AH:

 Allah is the only God in His Dominion.  He created the entire world, the upper and lower, the ^Arsh and Kursiyy, the heavens and earth, and what is in them and in between them.

قال النسفي رحمه الله:

قالَ أهلُ الحقّ: حقائقُ الأشياءِ ثابتةٌ، والعلمُ بها مُتَحققٌ خلافًا للسوفسطائية. وأسبابُ العلمِ للخلقِ ثلاثةٌ: الحواسُّ السليمةُ، والخبرُ الصادقُ، والعقلُ. فالحواسُّ خمسٌ: السمعُ، والبصرُ، والشمُّ، والذوقُ، واللمسُ. وبكل حاسةٍ منها يُوقف على ما وُضِعَت هي له: كالسمعِ، والذوقِ، والشمِّ. والخبرُ الصادقُ على نوعين: (أحدهُما) الخبرُ المتواترُ، وهو الخبرُ الثابتُ على ألسنةِ قومٍ لا يُتصورُ تواطؤهُم على الكَذِبِ، وهو مُوجِبٌ للعلمِ الضروريّ، كالعلمِ بالملوكِ الخاليةِ في الأزمنةِ الماضيةِ والبُلدانِ النائيةِ،
