AUTHOR'S INTRODUCTION

Verily all praise is for Allaah, we praise Him, seek His aid and guidance and His forgiveness; and we seek refuge in Allaah from the evils of our selves and from the sinfulness of our actions. Whosoever Allaah
guides, then none can misguide him, and whosoever He misguides, then there can be no guide for him. I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah alone, and I testify that Muahammad His
servant and Messenger.
"O you who believe! Fear Allaah as He should be feared and die not except as Muslims."
[Soorah Aali-'Iniraan 3:102]
"O people! Fear your Lord who created you from a single soul and created its wife from it, and from them both He created many menand women. And fear Allaah through whom you demand your mutual (rights) and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs. Verily Allaah is ever an All Watcher over
you." [Sooratun-Nisaa' 4:1]

"O you wh o believe! Say a word that is straight to the point; your actions will be rectified for you and your sins will be forgiven. And whosoever obeys Allaah and His Messenger, then he has indeed achieved a great achievement." [Sooratul-Ahzaab 33:70-7]
To proceed: Having embarked upon an extensive research to attain a doctorate in the Usoolud-Deen (foundations of the Religion) according to Imaam Aboo Haneefah, may Allaah the Exalted have mercy upon him, then I also included in my brief synopsis the creed ('aqeedah) of the three imaams: Maalik, ash-Shaafi'ee and Ahmad. So some of the distinguished people requested me to give attention to the creed ('aqeedah) of these three imaams, so as to complete the mentioning of the creed of the four imaams. I felt that I should do what they had suggested regarding the introduction of my research and add to what I had submitted about the creed of Imaam Aboo Haneefah in Tawheed, Qadar (divine pre-decree), eemaan (faith, belief), the Companions (sahaabah), and his position towards Ilmul-kalaam (theological rhetoric). And I ask Allaah to make this action sincerely for His Noble Face, and that He makes all of us agree with
guidance of His Book and that we travel upon the Sunnah of His Messenger (Sallahhaahu- `alaihi-Wa-salam). And Allaah is behind the intention and He is sufficient for us and He is the best of trustees.
