Encyclopedia > Abu Mansur Al Maturidi

Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn Mahmud Abu Mansur al-Samarqandi al-Maturidi al-Hanafi (d. 333 AH / 944 CE) was a Muslim theologian.


Born in Maturid near Samarqand, he was educated in Muslim theology and juristic sciences.


He wrote mostly against other sects, mainly Mu'tazilis, Qarmati, and Shi'a.


His theology is almost identical to that of Ash'aris. His followers are chiefly those of areas where the Hanafi school of law is prevalent, such as Turkey, Central Asia, Pakistan and India.
