The Sunni (Orthodox) scholars attempted to make definitions not only concerning Mu'tazila's name, structure, nature and its basic ideology but also its theology. Sünnî scholars, as a reaction to the oppressive attitudes of Mu'tazilah supporters in Mihne practice encouraged by the state, and their subjective and deliberately distorting explanations based on İbn al-Râvendî accusations, have been forced to consider this sect and its followers outside the Islamic World. In this context, Mu'tazilah sometimes has been blamed for ideas it doesn't approve like the description of God, certain views concerning Qur'an, superiority of rationality, the concept of "fasık", "vacib 'alallah'", the suffering of deads, sufferings in their graves and mercy. And this led to a misunderstaning concerning Mu'tazilah in the Muslim world. In this article, the extend to which distortions have been made concerning Mu'tazilah thought, due to the concscious referred, have been brought to day light while introducing the theology of the scholars of Ahl Sunnah.
