The author begins with the basic foundations of the Names of Allaah, establishing that all of them are beautiful and that they are either titles or descriptions. He also establishes that the Names of Allaah are not limited to a specific number as many imagine and he elaborates upon the various kinds of deviation from correct belief. In speaking about the principles of the Attributes, the author establishes that all of them are Attributes of perfection, that they are permanent and continuous and that knowledge of Allaah’s Attributes is more expansive than knowledge of His Names.

I have listened to its reading from beginning to end, and I have found it to be a magnificent book.It contains a clarification of the creed of the righteous Salaf concerning the Names and Attributes.

About this publication:
The pristine beliefs of the early Muslims are preserved in this vitally important masterpiece written by one of the most outstanding scholars of our time.
Seven clear principles and their evidences from the Book and the Sunnah guide the reader through the confusion and false claims of the ignorant to the clarity of belief in Allaah’s Names accomplished by the righteous early scholars of Islām.
Seven more principles and their evidences follow, giving the reader firm understanding of the correct beliefs about Allaah’s Attributes. Four more principles outline the correct approach in studying the related proofs and evidences.
All of this leads the reader into an enthralling series of refutations of the false notions of the Ash’aree sect, a text-by-text breakdown of how and why they went wrong in a careful and precise study of fifteen texts from the Book and the Sunnah. The beliefs of the Ash’aree sect are destroyed and the origins of their deviation are exposed for all to see.
"…A magnificent book… a clarification of the creed of the righteous Salaf concerning the Names and Attributes… great principles and collective benefits concerning the topic..."
- Shaykh Ibn Bāz
