A small abstract of a poem on the correct belief one should have as someone who adheres to the sunnah. Entitled ‘Laamiyah’, attributed to Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (May Allah have mercy on him):

وأقول في القرآن ما جاءت به آياته فهو الكريم المنزل
And I say regarding the Qur’an (only) that which has come [in its] verses, for it is the Noble Revelation

وأقول قال الله جل جلاله والمصطفى الهادي ولا أتأول
And I say, “Allah, the Mighty and Majestic said [and likewise] ‘the chosen one (نبينا صلى الله عليه وسلم) [said],” and I do not explain away (their speech)

وجميع آيات الصفات أمرها حقا كما نقل الطراز الأول
And all the verses of the attributes I pass them on in truth, just as the first (and best of generations) have transmitted [without explaining them away]

وأرد عهدتهل إلى نقالها وأصونها عن كل ما يتخيل
And I return the obligatory responsibility towards them to those who transmitted them (intact) and I protect them from all that is imagined (with respect to their realities)
