Qadhi ibn Farhun al-Maliki (r.a.) on Imam al-Ash’ari (r.a.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Qadhi ibn Farhun al-Maliki (r.a.) said, about Imam Abu al-Hasan al-Ash’ari (r.a.), “He was a follower of the Maliki school of law and he authored works for the people of the sunnah and he adduced arguments for the establishment of the sunnah and those things that the people of innovation refuted.  He established these clear arguments and proofs from the Qur’an and Prophetic traditions as well as sound rational arguments.  He suppressed the arguments of the Mu’taziliyyah and those apostates after them.  He wrote these extensive works that Allah has Benefited the Muslims with; he debated the Mu’tazilah and was victorious over them.”
