This is a translation of Shaykh A?mad al-Najm?’s explanation of al-Q???dah al-L?m?yah, which is ascribed to Shaykh al-Isl?m Ibn Taym?yah. It comprises of only 16 verses of poetry, clarifying a number of core beliefs of Ahl al-Sunnah Wa al-Jam??ah. Thus, it is easy to memorize, and a great starting point for a child or a beginner in knowledge.
This poem has a written manuscript in J?mi?ah Malik Saud (no. 6/1928), and it is found alongside two other works, al-Was?yah al-Kubra and al-Adillah al-Bayyinah, both of which are known works of Ibn Taym?yah.
It has been mentioned by the Scholar of Iraq, N?um?n al-?l?s?, in his excellent book Jal? al-?Aynayn L? Muh?kamah al-A?madayn, and Shaykh ?Abd al-Sal?m b. Burjis mentioned this poem as being amongst the poetry of Ibn Taym?yah in his work al-?a??? Min al-Na?m al-Fa??? L? Shaykh al-Isl?m Ibn Taym?yah; and a number of Scholars have explanations of this poem, from them is Shaykh Ahmad al-Mardaw? (d. 1236H) written almost two hundred years ago.
Shaykh al-Isl?m Ibn Taym?yah (V) said:
“As for Ahl al-Sunnah Wa al-?ad?th, then it is not known that any of their scholars nor righteous common-folk ever renounced their doctrine and creed. Rather, they were the most patient of the people upon that, even if they were tested with all types of tests and trialed with all types of tribulations.” Naq? al-Man?iq, p. 42.
