About the Book:
The book before you is an explanation of a concise yet great work written by a noble Scholar of Islām from the twelfth century of Islām, known as Muḥammad Ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb. He compiled this work, called “The Three Fundamental Principles”, in order to make clear to the people the core and fundamental principles upon which Islām is established.
Shaykh Muḥammad Ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb took these principles from the texts of Qurʾān and pure Prophetic Sunnah, as well as the Companions and those who succeeded them. This is why in all of the works of the Shaykh, whether small or large, you will find quote after quote from the Religious texts. Muḥammad Ibn ʿAbd al-Wahhāb 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 Allāh and his Companions.
