"To proceed: Know O community of Brothers - may Allaah grant success to us and to you in the straight and upright Deen and guide us all to the Straight Path - that the book al-Ibaanah an Usool id-Diyaanah, which the Imaam Abu Hasan Alee bin Ismaa'eel al-Ash'ariyy authored is the one in which his affair [his aqeedah and his position] was settled with respect to that which he held as his aqeedah and worshipped Allaah - the Sublime and Exalted - with, after his return from I'tizaal [the madhhab of the Mu'tazilah] by the Grace of Allaah and His Benevolence. And every saying [or treatise] which are ascribed to him now and which oppose that which is in al-Ibaanah, then he turned back from that and declared himself to be innocent of it in front of Allaah - the Sublime. How can it be otherwise, when he is stated in it the religion with which he worships Allaah - the Sublime - which he reports and establishes himself upon the way of the Sahaabah, the Taabi'een and the Scholars of Hadeeth, those who have passed, and the saying of Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal - may Allaah be pleased with them all. And that it [i.e. his religion] is that which the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger points to. Is it then permissible for it to be said that he turned back from that to other than it? To what exaclty, did he turn back to, and which you can see [evidently]? Did he turn back from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Prophet of Allaah, to the opposite of that which the Sahaabah, the Taabi'een and the Scholars of Hadeeth, who have passed away, were upon? And with his knowledge that that was their madhhab? He narrated this [i.e. his aqeedah in al-Ibaanah] from them and by my life, how can that which does not befit the common Muslims be ascribed to the Scholars of the Religion? Or can it be said that he was ignorant of what he was relating from the Salaf who have passed... ... this is something which a just person can never imagine and suspect, and none but an arrogant person and a profligate can hold this..." And then he continues to mention those who have affirmed the ascription of the book al-Ibaanah to Abu Hasan al-Ash'ariyy as listed above. Refer to the book adh-Dhabb an Abee Hasan al-Ash'ariyy, checked and verified by Alee bin Muhammad bin Naasir al-Faqeehee (p.97-108)
