Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a concluding view of the book Al-Māturīdī and the Development of Sunnī Theology in Samarqand, which focuses on the main themes that stimulated Al-Māturīdī. The Kitāb al-Tawḥīd finds an appropriate conclusion with the description of belief. A complete circle is thus drawn from the capacity of human beings to know things up to their final achievement of perfection by knowing God and being upright believers. The book discusses a general characterization of Al-Māturīdī theology and determining what role he performed in the historical development of kalām. Before the emergence of al-Māturīdī, theology in Transoxania was written in a relatively unembellished manner, as is evident from the analysis of its early development.

Keywords: Al-Māturīdī; kalām; Samarqand; Sunnī theology; Transoxania
