The Explanation of Al-Aqidah Al-Wasitiyyah
We believe in Allah the Exalted, by His beautiful names and lofty attributes, which are affirmed in the Quran and the authentic Sunnah in a way which are befitting to His majesty; without Tahreef (distortion) or tateel (negating) or takyeef (saying how) and tamtheel (likeness to creation). Rather we say: All of his attributes are true and all of His names are beautiful. We affirm for Allah, what He has affirmed for Himself, what His prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), has affirmed for Him, and what the companions of the prophet,(Radiallahu anhum), have affirmed for Him; in what which is befitting to His majesty. His attributes do not resemble the attributes of the creation, and His names do not resemble the names of His creation. He has beautiful names, and they have great meanings.
