Whilst teaching al-Aqida Al-Tahawiyya at Madrasa Hamidiyya (Overport, Durban, South Africa) from 2002 to 2006, the idea for compiling a book in English for the benefit of the general public emerged. The short treatise on theology written by Imam Tahawi was titled Bayan al-Sunna wa-l-Jamaa and is commonly known as al-Aquida al-Tahawiyya.
