Is there a difference between ‘Aqeedah (belief) and Manhaj (methodology)?

Is there a difference between ‘Aqeedah (belief) and Manhaj (methodology)?

Manhaj is more general than ‘Aqeedah, Manhaj is found in ‘Aqeedah and in conduct and in manners and in dealings – and in the entire life of the Muslim, every course that the Muslim sets out upon is called Manhaj. As for ‘Aqeedah, then what is intended by that is the ‘asl (foundation/core) of Al-Eemaan, along with the meaning of the two shahaadahs and what they entail, this is ‘Aqeedah.
