Imam Abu Hafs (D573 AH) wrote a short, succint and accurate summary of the authentic Muslim beliefs in his popular work, ‘Aqaa’id an-Nasafi. This short tract has been highly praised by all the scholars for its brevity, accuracy and completeness. Some 25 commentaries have been written on it. One of the most popular was the commentary written by S’ad ud-Din Taftazaani (d. 793 AH). Since then, it has been taught in Islamic schools and seminaries throughout the world, particularly in Central and South Asia.
