Abstract: Saʻd al-Dīn al-Taftāzānī al-Ḥanafī (722-792 / 1322-1390) is regarded as a prominent representative of the Second Eastern Renaissance. He is a scholar who wrote in Arabic, ancient Turkic, and Persian languages, and produced valuable works on al-naḥw, al-ṣarf, balāḡa (eloquence) uṣūl al-fiqh, and furūʻ al-fiqh (ḥanafī, shāfiʿī, and mālikī), logic, ʿaqīdah, ḥadīth, tafsīr, geometry, astronomy, and other similar fields of science. In particular, in his books, Saʻd al-Dīn al-Taftāzānī separately explored the levels of Sharīʿah issues and their evidence that serve the correct understanding of Islam. In addition to the Qur’an and ḥadīths, the scholar also used the exact sciences to substantiate doctrinal issues. Indeed, the scholar’s approach serves as an important impetus to create a scientific perception in the general public about the call of Islam for enlightenment and peace. His scientific views are also of great importance in overcoming biased, unscientific views on the interdependence of Islam and science. This article addresses these issues.

Key words: ḥanafī, māturīdī, ashʻarī, fiqh, īmān (faith), kalām, ʿaqīdah (creed), manṭīq (logic), dalīl (evidence), heaven, hell, tafsīr, al-’Isrā’, al-Miʿrāj.
