As-Salamu Alaikum!

Can someone clarify something for me please.

If ibn hajar and Imam Nawawi had the aqeedah of AlShari, how are they then considered of Ahlul Sunnah. Please forgive me I am very ignorant of this matter and wish to learn.   If someone can bring statements of scholars of likes Albani, ibn Uheymin and Ibn Baz regarding Imam Nawawi and ibn hajar.  Jazak Allahu Khair

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

All Praise Is Due To Allaah And May The Peace And Blessings Of Allaah Be Upon His Messenger Mohammed Ibn Abdullaah (Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam) And His Family And All His Companions (Radhiallahu Anhum).

The people of knowledge have already answered this, wa lillaah il Hamd, and the summary of the answer is that Ibn Hajar and an-Nawwawi (rahimahumullaah) are from the people of knowledge and excellence. They are amongst the major scholars by whose knowledge Allaah benefited the ummah. They are among Ahl al-Sunnah but as for the mistakes in their interpretation of the texts which speak of the divine attributes than this was a mistakes in ijtihaad - that they spoke concerning some of the interpretation of the divine attributes in a manner other than their apparent meaning but they are not to be judged as an innovator, rather we should say that these are mistakes that they made, but we hope that they will be forgiven because of the great services that they performed for the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), for they are great Imams who are trusted by the scholars.

For a more comprehensive answer please refer to: Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daaŭimah (3/241) BaarakAllaahu feekum.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz (d.1420H) and the Standing Committee on Imaams: Ibn Hajr and an-Nawawee

"Our position towards Abee Bakr al-Baaqillaanee (d.402H), al-Bayhaqee (d.457H), Abul-Farj Ibnul-Jawzee (d.597H), Abee Zakariyyah an-Nawawee (d.676H), Ibn Hajr (d.852H) and their likes from those who performed ta'weel for some of the Attributes of Allaah the Exalted or performed tafweed (affirming the wording and leaving the meaning to Allaah) for the asl (origin, basis) of their meaning - in our view they are from the major Scholars of the Muslims.  Allaah benefited the Ummah through their knowledge - so may Allaah bestow His vast mercy upon them and reward them from us with the best reward.  They are from Ahlus-Sunnah in whatever they have agreed with the Companions - radiyallaahu 'anhum - and with the Imaams of the Salaf in the three generations for which the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) testified with goodness.  And they erred in whatever they performed ta'weel of from the texts about the Attributes and in that they opposed the Salaf of the Ummah and the Imaams of the Sunnah - rahimahumullaah - regardless of whether this occurred in the dhaatee (pertaining to the Essence (dhaat) of Allaah) Attributes, the Attributes of af'aal (pertaining to the actions of Allaah), or some of that."

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan on Imaams: Ibn Hajr and an-Nawawee

Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan said, "Whosoever has an error he made out of ijtihaad (independent reasoning), then he is excused for it like Ibn Hajr and an-Nawawee and what they fell into from ta'weel of some of the Attributes.  Such a person is not ruled an innovator.  However, it must be said that what occurred from the two of them is an error.  And it is hoped that the two of them will be forgiven due to what they both put forth from great service to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam).  So both of them are noble Imaams who are trusted by the people of knowledge."  Refer to al-Fataawaa (3/66) of al-Fawzaan.

And Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan also said, "Ibn Hazm, Ibn Hajr, ash-Shawkaanee and al-Bayhaqee are from the great Imaams have reached the status of trustworthiness according to the people of knowledge.  They have from magnificent writings and books that are considered Islaamic source works that the Muslims refer back to, that which eclipses their errors and slips.  May Allaah the Exalted bestow mercy upon them."  Refer to al-Ajwibatul-Mufeedah (p. 222) of Jamaal Ibn Furayhaan al-Haarithee.
