Al-Aqidah Al-Waasitiyyah (Arabic: العقيدة الواسطية‎) is a book of Islamic creed written by Ibn Taymiyyah. It is considered relatively easy to understand compared to Ibn Taymiyyah's other works on creed.[1] The work was of special interest to the Wahhabi movement.[1] After writing this book, Ibn Taymiyyah was charged by his opponents with anthropomorphism.[2]
