All praise is due to Allah and prayers and salutations be upon the Messenger, to proceed:

We are pleased to announce that our first publication is in progress, entitled, "The Creed of the Early Kullābī Ashʿarites", which reaches over 1000 pages, over 2000 footnotes and lots of appendices. This work was started on July 10th, 2010 in response to certain combined factors, and in less than three months, by Allah's praise, has gone from what was supposed to be a 250 page publication to four times the size.We do not have a firm publication date as a work of this size needs thorough review and checking. Here are some teasers - they are miscellaneous pages from various parts of the book (we will add more samples later):

The natural, innate disposition upon which Allah created mankind, by admission of later Jahmite Asharites like al-Ghazali (here) and al-Razi (here), is averse to a theology whose language and terminology in speech about Allaah [Allaah is not a jism, or jawhar, or arad, or in makan, or in jihah, or in tahayyuz, nor in the universe, or outside of it or below it, or above it and so on] is derived from the philosophy and sayings of Greek and Sabean, pagan, star and idol-worshipping disbelievers. Both Abu al-Hasan al-Ashari (d. 324H) and Abu Sulayman al-Khattabi (d. 376H) stated that this method taken by the Mutakallimun, came from the non-Muslim Philosophers. With this in mind, the entire polemic of the contemporary Ashari school - which has little in common with al-Ash'ari himself due to the pollution of the original Kullabi Ashari school with I'tizal, Tajahhum, Tasawwuf and Falsafah between the 5th and 7th centuries - takes on a particular form and orientation not devoid of hypocrisy, blatant contradiction, logical fallacy, and both historical and academic fraud, in order to maintain the fake illusion of Islamic and Sunni orthodoxy. The book tears apart that illusion, by Allah's permission and aid, and through that exposes the fraudulent nature of the charges levelled against Ahl al-Sunnah, Ahl al-Hadith wal-Athar by todays Jahmites.
