The Islamic Creed & its History
About the Book: If the Muslim was to read this book 'The Islamic Creed and Its History' by the noble Shaykh Dr. Muḥammad ibn ‘Alī al-Jāmī with patience and deliberation, he would never become tired of reading it, and he would learn from it the reality of Islamic monotheism (tawḥīd), and the ideologies of the sects that have falsely ascribed themselves to Islam as well as their dangers and evil effects upon confused intellects and diseased hearts. If the Muslim knew this he would renounce these sects and fight against their ideologies and those who embrace them, and he would know the path of truth and would traverse upon it without oppressing anyone from the Muslims, or other than them because the oppressor’s wrongdoing will only return back to him. In fact, if the Muslim reads this book carefully he will attain much good since it strives to correct the Muslim’s creed and it sincerely attempts to ensure that it will remain correct for the sake of ALLAH. It rectifies what is between him and ALLAH regarding his worship just as it also rectifies what is between him and the people regarding their worldly dealings. It rectifies what is between him and his own soul so he will not oppress it by exposing it to ALLAH's punishment in the worldly life as well as the hereafter.
About the Author: The noble Shaykh, Dr. Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān said “The Shaykh, Muḥammad Amān as I know him is as follows; the people who are educated and who carry various degrees of higher studies are many. However, very few of them benefit from their own knowledge and benefit others with it. Shaykh Muḥammad Amān al-Jāmī is from those rare examples of scholars who downplays his own level of knowledge, and efforts to benefit the Muslims and direct them through calling to Allah upon foresight throughout his time as a teacher at the University of Medinah, and during his time in the venerated Prophet’s masjid. Additionally he has travelled throughout the Muslim lands abroad as well as the various trips throughout the different regions of the Kingdom to give lessons and lectures, calling to monotheism, spreading the correct creed and directing the youth of this nation towards the methodology of the Pious Predecessors, while also warning them regarding destructive principles and deviant calls. So ALLAH reward him generously for what he knew and acted upon.
