Sound Theology

Bismillah ir rahman ir raheem, With the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

Say, “My Lord has only forbidden immoralities – what is apparent of them and what is concealed – and sin, and oppression without right, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent down authority, and that you say about Allah that which you do not know.” (Qur’an 7:33)

As salamu ‘alikum warahmutallahi wabarakuth (May the Peace, Mercy of Allah and Blessings descend upon you in tranquility).

This section will include the Ibadi school’s position on various matters of theology. It is important that the Muslim ummah have a sound theology. This theology must be based primarily on the Qur’an. Any transmission from the Sunnah must meet two criteria. First is that it must be mutawattir or mass transmitted. The second is that it must be logical and coherent.
