In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The creed of Ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah is an ancient creed which was known well before Allāh created Abū Hanīfah, Mālik, al-Shāfiʿī and Aḥmad. It was the creed of the Companions who received it from their Prophet. Therefore, whoever opposes this creed is considered an innovator with Ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah.

A series of questions and answers - along with their respective proofs - concerning the oft-discussed topic of taqlīd (blind-following) and the four madhāhib (schools of jurisprudence), as answered by the committee of major scholars.
A brief article containing statements from the Salaf about the Attributes of Allāh and their consensus concerning the futility of taʾwīl (figurative interpretation), and a refutation of the ridiculous scandal that the way of the Salaf was one of tafwīdh (affirming the wording of the Attributes, without the meaning).
A decisive lecture in which the speaker gathers all of the most popular arguments the people of madhāhib use, and then he refutes them in a logical, systematic manner.
