How does the Muslim preserve his Creed?


Question: How does the Muslim correct and preserve his creed?

Sheikh ‘Abdul ‘Aziz bin Baaz, may Allaah’s mercy be upon him, answered:

“(Firstly) by him gaining understanding in the religion and educating himself about it until he is aware of the correct creed and (the way) to preserve it.

As well as asking the People of Knowledge. If he is a student of knowledge, then he can contemplate over the Qur’aan and the Sunnah, i.e. Prophetic Way of the Prophet may peace and blessings be upon him, until he knows the correct creed that the Qur’aan (and Sunnah) call to and he clings on to it and remains steadfast upon it. If he has any problems then he asks the Scholars, those whom he trusts and feels comfortable with, about that which is troubling him. So that he can be upon clarity.”

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
