Explanation of al-Uṣūl al-Sittah

Shaykh Abū ʿIyāḍ

The exceptional book “Sharḥ al-Uṣūl al-Sittah” [شرح الأصول الستة] is a short treatise outlining six great and mighty principles of the dīn of Islām through which the errors of extremists of all kinds are made plain. These six principles comprise: a) sincerity in worship, b) obligation of unity, c) giving obedience to those in authority, d) knowledge of the true scholars of the religion, e) knowledge of the true awliyāʾ (friends) of Allāh and f)  recognising and repelling a doubt related to a person’s ability in following the Book and the Sunnah.

This treatise was explained using the works of two contemporary scholars, Shaykh Aḥmad al-Najmī (raḥimahullāh) and Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirī (hafiẓahullāh) and is a good basic text for a person to build authentic knowledge and understanding of Islām and the Sunnah whilst being far away from neglect, extremism and exaggeration.
