Upon entering Islām, it is fundamental for one to become grounded in the founding principles of the Religion, in order to be free from innovation and misguidance.
The Prophet of Islām, Muḥammad (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “There are three things, whoever attains them will find the sweetness of faith: when Allāh and His Messenger are more beloved to him than everything else; when he loves another person, he loves him only for the sake of Allāh; and when he hates to return to disbelief [kufr] as he would hate to be thrown into the Fire” [Reported by al-Bukhārī (no. 15)].
Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Suḥaymī says: "And indeed Allāh the, Blessed and the Exalted, created the Jinn and the Mankind with great Wisdom. Is it not for the purpose of worshipping Him, the Perfect and Exalted, and nothing else besides him? It is as Allāh, the Blessed and the Exalted, has said, 'And I did not create the Jinn and mankind, except to worship Me' [Sūrah al Dhāriyāt: 56] And the meaning of 'to worship Me' is 'to single Me out in worship'" [Mudhkiratun fil 'Aqeedah (p. 8)].
Abū ʿUways (raḥimahullāh) gives a strong admonishment based upon Allāh's Statement: O you who believe! Fear Allāh as He should be feared, and do not die except as Muslims (Sūrah Āli-ʿImrān, 3:102).Add a comment
Our noble brother Abū ͑Abdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī (hafiẓahullāh) gives an excellent short, yet comprehensive reminder regarding the importance of studying tawḥīd, and the need for its dissemination to the people in general due to the widespread ignorance concerning what is obligated upon the Muslim with regards to singling out Allāh alone in worship, upon the correct understanding of the meaning of Lā ilāha illā Allāh and its conditions, and the importance of knowing and abandoning shirk and its many forms and manifestations.Add a comment

In this very important lecture the Shaykh covers points that emphasise the great virtue and reward for seeking legislative knowledge. The shaykh discussed the noble and honourable position of those who carry and spread knowledge. He explains verses from the Qurʾān and narrations from the Sunnah to show the great status of legislative knowledge in the religion. Translated succinctly by our brother Abū ʿUways ʿAbdullāh Aḥmad ʿAlī (raḥimahullāh), may Allāh grant him a great reward.Add a comment
