List of Prominent Ash'arite Scholars
Ash'arism or al-Ash'ariyya (Arabic:الأشعرية) is a theological school of Sunni Islam that is based on the theological ideas of Abu l-Hasan al-Ash'ari (b. 260/873-4 - d. 324/936). In the beginning of his scientific journey, He was Mu'tazili but after a while he was seeking a moderate way between radical rationalism of Mu'tazila and anti-rationalism of Ahl al-Hadith. His efforts resulted in acceptance of the ideas of Ahl al-Hadith along with rational explanation for them. Nowadays most of the Sunnis follow Ash'arism in theological creed.
