about this item

What do most Muslims believe in today and how have these theological beliefs been understood throughout the intellectual history of Islam? These are the questions that The Muslim Creed: A Theological Study seeks to answer. Dr Amjad Hussain presents a concise introduction to what Muslims believe in and practise, and also why they continue to do so in the twenty-first century. The work is divided into three parts: an introduction to Islamic creed and theology, including discussions of the schools of the Ash'ariyya and the Maturidiyya; the articles of faith and theology; and the future of Islamic theology. The reader is given an overview of the intellectual history of Islamic theology and an insight into contemporary Islamic theology through the six articles of the Islamic faith: God, the angels, the prophets and messengers, the sacred scriptures and the divine decree. The Muslim Creed: A Theological Study introduces the reader to the range of debates and discussions that have occurred in relation to the subject of creed and theology throughout Muslim history, including the opinions of various theologians who represent the unity as well as the diversity of Muslim theology. It also raises the subject of the future of Islamic theology and makes a genuine contribution to this debate.
