Al- Bidayah fi usul al-din (An Introduction to Islamic Theology) is a classical text on Maturidi theology authored by Imam Nur al-Din al-Sabuni (d.580/1184), a prominent Muslim theologian from Bukhara. It is a concise yet thorough manual of key doctrinal issues that were historically debated in early Islamic history. The text explains the central tenets of the Islamic creed and refutes erroneous positions of alternative theologies. The discussions are uncomplicated and unencumbered by technical terminology, and the positions of orthodoxy are presented with rational and scriptural evidence.

This text includes the original Arabic script, concise translation, and comprehensive notes by translator Faraz A. Khan, providing a rare rendering into the English language of the extraordinary richness and enduring relevance of the kalam commentary tradition. Finally, an insightful foreword by Dr. Hamza Yusuf and a valuable appendix on the kalam cosmological argument provide an enhanced support of this remarkable text.
