The Three Fundamental Principles of Islam & their Proofs Study Book
Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (died 752H) stated: “The two feet of a person who stands before Allaah on the Day of Resurrection will not move until he is asked regarding two matters: ‘What was is that you worshiped? And what was your response to the Messengers?’ The answer to the first question is by actualisation of the words, ‘none has the right to be worshiped except Allaah’ with knowledge, affirmation, and action. The answer to the second question is by actualisation of the words, ‘Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah’ with knowledge, affirmation, submission, and obedience”.
From these words, it becomes clear the tremendous importance of the treatise before us whose subject matter is: to single out Allaah alone in his Lordship and worship, and the tremendous importance and station of the Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him), and that he is the example to be followed. The great scholar, Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhaab (died 1206H) compiled this treatise in a manner that is easy to understand and memorize, each point being coupled with a proof.
