(51) Kitab Al-Arsh by Adh-Dhahabi (2 /342) , Ad-Dhahabi said – after mentioning the verses of poetry by Al-Karji on Allah’s Elevation on the Throne - : “Currently there are copies of it there, from it is a copy with the handwriting of Shaikh Taqi Ad-Deen Ibn As-Salah, at the begining of it is written: ‘This is the Creed of Ahl Assunnah and Ashab Al-Hadeeth’, with his handwriting – Rahimahullah-.” ; Adh-Dhahabi mentioned the same in his book “AL-Uluw” when speaking about the poetry of Al- Karji.
