A Gift for the Intellects in Explanation of The Three Fundamental Principles of Islam
The book before you is an explanation of a concise yet great work written by a noble Scholar of Islaam from the twelfth 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 the Qur’an 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 these are falsehoods easily repelled by the legacy of author-ship 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.
