Hajj and jihad under the leadership of those in charge of the Muslims, whether they are right or wrong-acting, are continuing obligations until the Last Hour comes. And Allaah knows best. It was not only after the act of creation that He could be described as ‘the Creator’ nor was it only by the act of origination that He could he described as qt Originator’.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia
This number will neither be increased nor decreased. And we are certain that Muhammad may Allah bless him and grant him peace is His chosen servant and selected Prophet and His Messenger with whom He is well pleased.
We do not enter into vain talk about Allah nor do we allow any dispute about the religion Of Allah. Anyone who does not guard himself against negating the attributes of Allah, or likening Allah to something else, has gone astray and has failed lo understand Allah’s Glory, because our lord, the Glorified and the Exalted, can only possibly be described in terms of Oneness and Absolute Singularity and no creation is in any way like Him.
There is nothing that He has created in either the heavens or the earth that can contradict it, or add to it, or erase it, or change it, or decrease it, or increase it in any way. In the same way that He is the ‘Bringer to life of the dead’, after He has brought them lo life a first time, and deserves this name before bringing them to life, so too He deserves the name of ‘Creator’ before He has created them.
Belief consists of belief in Allah. Those of the Urnmah of Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, who have committed grave sins will be in the Fire, but not forever, provided they die and meet Allah as believers affirming His unity even if they have not repented.
Ibn Abi’l ‘Izz al-Hanafi – al ‘Aqeedah at-Tahawiyyah
His angels, His books, His messengers, the Last Day, and belief that the Decree – both the good of it and the evil of it, the sweet of it and the bitter or it – is all from Allah. Anyone who desires to know things which it is beyond his capacity to know, and whose intellect is not content with surrender, will find that his desire veils him from a pure understanding of Allah’s true unity, clear knowledge and correct belief.
We ask forgiveness for the people of wrong action among the believers and, although we are afraid for them, we are not in despair about them. Nothing can annul or controvert them. The Garden and the Fire are created things that never come to an end and we believe that Allah created them before the rest of creation and then created people to inhabit each of them.
We hold that obedience to them is part of obedience to Allah, The Glorified, and therefore obligatory as long as they do not order to commit sins. We do not agree with killing any of the Ummah of Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, unless it is obligatory by Shari’ah to do so.
We do not recognize rebellion against our Imam or those in charge of our affairs even if they are unjust, nor do we wish evil on them, nor do we withdraw from following them. We do not consider any of the people of our qiblah to he unbelievers because of any wrong action they have done, as long as they do not consider that action to have been lawful.
They are certain that it is, in truth, the word of Allah.
Allah warns him ay censures him and threatens him with Fire when He says, Exalted is He: And if all created beings were to gather together to make something exist which Allah had not written on it, they would not be able to do so. In his delusory attempt to investigate the Unseen, he tahawiyah seeking a secret that can never be uncovered, and he ends up an evil-doer, telling nothing but lies.
All those who grasp this will take heed and refrain from saying things such as the unbelievers say, and they will know that He, in His attributes, is not like human beings.
Sharh Al-Aqeedah At-Tahawiyyah
Allah knew, before the existence of time, the exact number of those who would enter the Garden and the exact number of those who would enter the Fire. So, this commentary is heavily influenced by Imam Ibn Taymiyyah’s writings.
It is comprehensive and brief. We bear witness that the ten who were named by the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and who hahawiyyah promised the Garden by him, will be in the Garden, as the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, whose word is truth, bore witness that they would he.
This is a fundamental aspect of belief and a necessary element of all knowledge and recognition of Allah’s oneness and Lordship. He does whatever He wills and He is never unjust. There is only one religion of Allah in the heavens and the earth and that is the religion of Islam.
Anyone who speaks well of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and his wives and offspring, who are all pure and untainted by any impurity, is free from the accusation of hypocrisy.
Everything happens according to Allah’s will, knowledge, predestination and decree. What is it about?.
