Question: Please guide me to the most authentic book on correct Islaamic `Aqeedah (creed)! May Allaah grant you success!

I advise the inquirer and all Muslims to hold fast to the Qur’aan and to give it due attention by reciting it often, reflecting on its meanings and trying hard to memorize as many chapters of it as possible. It is the Greatest Book which Allaah has sent down to His servants so that they may memorize it, follow its teachings and act upon it. It contains plain truths and clear guidance. Allaah (Glorified and Exalted be He) states, Verily, this Qur’aan guides to that which is most just and right He (Glorified be He) also says, …it is an honourable well-fortified respected Book (because it is Allaah’s Speech, and He has protected it from corruption). Falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind it: (it is) sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all praise (Allaah عز وجل). and: And We have sent down to you the Book (the Qur’aan) as an exposition of everything, a guidance, a mercy, and glad tidings for those who have submitted themselves (to Allaah as Muslims). … read more here.
