A Gift for the Intellects in Explanation of the Three Fundamental Principles of Islaam
The book before you is an explanation of a concise yet great work written by a noble Scholar of Islaam from the twelth century of Islaam, known as Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhaab. He compiled this work, called “The Three Fundamental Principles”, in order to make clear to the people the core and fundamental principles upon which Islaam is established.
Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhaab took these principles from the texts of Qur’aan and pure Prophetic Sunnah, as well as the Companions and those who succeeded them. This is why in all of the works of the Shaikh, whether small or large, you will find quote after quote from the Religious texts. Muhammad Ibn Abdul-Wahhaab is a much maligned and misrepresented Scholar. His adversaries, in his time and after expended much effort in spreading misinformation regarding his belief and methodology.
Some ascribe to him extremism; others ascribe to him deviation in belief and creed. All of this are falsehoods easily repelled by the legacy of authorship that he left behind, which clearly show that he was neither an extremist, nor a deviant, rather his works show that he was a true traditionalist in the Path of the Messenger of Allaah and his Companions.
