This chapter, as the title indicates, revolves around an understanding of the various beliefs of Muslims. Without assuming that all Muslims—across time and geography—think or believe the same things, it nevertheless seeks to account for a general and wide-ranging set of beliefs. These include doctrines of belief and faith. The chapter also highlights the various theological schools that have arisen in Islam.
