There are some small differences between the Asharites and Maturidites, but they are usually regarded as methodological and nonessential.
Asharites, for instance, rejected the following:
- takwin (which means "to bring into existence") as a divine attribute,
- the eternalness of God's actions, unlike his attributes and
- the necessity of believing in the existence and unity of God through rational arguments in the absence of divine revelation
all of which are among the Maturidite theses.
