One of the works on this subject is his (Ibn Taymiyyah’s) “al-Fatwaa al-Hamawiyyah” which he wrote as an answer to a question presented to him in the Hijrah year of 698 from Hamaah, a place in ash-Shaam. In it, he was asked what the scholars and Imaams of the religion say concerning the Aayaat and the Ahaadeeth of the Sifaat, or the attributes and characteristics of Allaah. So he answered in about 83 pages and due to which, he suffered trials and afflictions. May Allaah reward him on behalf of Islaam and the Muslims with the best of rewards.
From the Back of the Book:
Allaah has sent Muhammad (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam) with guidance and the true religion. He sent him as a mercy to the world, as an example for the workers, and as a proof against all the servants. He (Muhammad) fulfilled the trust, conveyed the message, advised the Ummah, and he clarified for the people all of what they need regarding the foundations of their religion as well as its detailed matters. He left no good except that he clarified it and encouraged it, and he left no evil but that he warned the Ummah from it so much so that he left his Ummah upon a clear, white path – its night as clear as its day. His companions traversed this path, shining and radiant.
Afterwards, the best generations took it from them in the same state until oppression frowned upon them with the darkness of various innovations by which the innovators conspired against Islaam and its people. The people then wandered in confusion purposelessly, and they began building their ‘Aqeedah beliefs upon a spider’s web.
However, the Lord upholds His religion with His close helpers upon whom He bestows Eemaan, knowledge, and wisdom by which they prevent these enemies. They repel their plot back against their own throats. So no one ever comes out with his innovation except that Allaah – and for this deserves praise and thanks – destines to send someone from Ahlus-Sunnah who refutes and disproves his innovation and extinguishes it.
He has many works on the clarification and explanation of the Sunnah, the reinforcement of its pillars, and the destruction of innovations.
One of the works on this subject is his “al-Fatwaa al-Hamawiyyah” which he wrote as an answer to a question presented to him in the Hijrah year of 698 from Hamaah, a place in ash-Shaam. In it, he was asked what the scholars and Imaams of the religion say concerning the Aayaat and the Ahaadeeth of the Sifaat, or the attributes and characteristics of Allaah. So he answered in about 83 pages and due to which, he suffered trials and afflictions. May Allaah reward him on behalf of Islaam and the Muslims with the best of rewards.
Due to the difficulty in understanding and comprehending this answer from many readers, I wanted to summarize the most important points from it along with some other needed additions. I have named it “Fathu Rabb-il-Bariyyah bi-Talkhees al-Hamawiyyah.”
I first published it in the Hijrah year 1380. I am now publishing it a second time and perhaps changing what I see beneficial of additions or deletions.
I ask Allaah to make our effort sincerely for His Face and as a benefit to His servants, for indeed He is Generous and Kind.

The pristine beliefs of the early Muslims are preserved in this vitally important masterpiece written by one of the most outstanding scholars of our time.
Seven clear principles and their evidences from the Book and the Sunnah guide the reader through the confusion and false claims of the ignorant to the clarity of belief in Allaah’s Names accomplished by the righteous early scholars of Islaam.
Seven more principles and their evidences follow, giving the reader firm understanding of the correct beliefs about Allaah’s Attributes. Four more principles outline the correct approach in studying the related proofs and evidences.
All of this leads the reader into an enthralling series of refutations of the false notions of the Ash’aree sect, a text-by-text breakdown of how and why they went wrong in a careful and precise study of fifteen texts from the Book and the Sunnah. The beliefs of the Ash’aree sect are destroyed and the origins of their deviation are exposed for all to see.
In the third section of the book, the author brings the principles with regards to the textual evidences for Allaah’s Names and Attributes. He establishes that the proofs for the Names and Attributes of Allaah are only taken from the Qur’aan and the Sunnah, whilst keeping to the apparent meanings of the texts. Towards the end of the book, the author makes a definitive distinction between Imaam Abul-Hasan al-Ash’aree and the deviant sect known as the Ash’ariyyah, along with detailed refutations of their famous arguments against Ahlus-Sunnah. The book concludes with a chapter dealing with the ruling upon the people of ta’weel and an explanation of the ma’iyyah (i.e. Allaah being with the creation) of Allaah. As an added benefit, this translated version of the book includes the Arabic texts of some of the pivotal ahaadeeth and statements of the Salaf so that the reader may memorize them. Additionally, appendices have been added listing the various authentic Names and Attributes of Allaah with evidence for Name and Attribute from the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. Lastly, it is useful to mention that this book has been widely acclaimed by the people of knowledge as a crucial text needed for understanding the belief of Ahlus-Sunnah in Tawheedul-Asmaa’ was-Sifaat; and at the head of these people of knowledge who have commended this book is Shaykhul-Islaam ‘Abdul-’Azeez Ibn Baaz – rahimahullaah.
“…A magnificent book… a clarification of the creed of the righteous Salaf concerning the Names and Attributes… great principles and collective benefits concerning the topic…” - Shaykh Ibn Baaz
