What was the 'Aqeedah of Ibn Hazm?
The fact that Ibn Hazm was Dhaahiree does not mean he was not an ‘Aalim (Scholar), rather he was from amongst the ‘Ulamaa. Yet Ibn Hazm had with him a point of note and it was: that he was Jahmee Mu’tazilee in ‘Aqeedah, and the reason for that: was the fact that he initially studied philosophy, so when he came to the Qur’aan and the Sunnah in order to learn them – he began entering into philosophy into the both of them. So he would lay open/present the Qur’aan upon the philosophy, so if the Qur’aan disagreed with the philosophy – then he would not take with regards the Qur’aan. Likewise is done by all the misguided sects; they learn philosophy before the Qur’aan.

Then the Shaikh said: So it is obligatory upon the students of knowledge; that they study the Qur’aan firstly.
