When you acknowledge that Allaah has created you for His worship, then know that worship is not regarded as such unless it is accompanied by tawheed, just as prayer is not regarded as prayer unless it is accompanied by purification taharah.
All Praise is due to Allaah, may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions. Due to the fact that I did not find an explanation for the book, I decided to write one according to my capacity and ability.
May Allaah forgive me for any deficiencies in it. For verily, those are the three signs of happiness.
It is a short treatise and follows The Three Fundamental Arbq from the point of view of its necessity to be grasped by the students of knowledge. And the general meaning of these four principles which the Shaikh may Allaah wl mercy on him has mentioned is knowledge and recognition of tawheed and shirk.
So what is the principle regarding tawheed? And what is the principle regarding shirk? This is because many people have strayed in these two matters. So they stray with regard to the meaning of tawheed and shirk, each person explaining them according to his own desires. However, that which is obligatory is to return to the Book and the Sunnah. So that this tag ‘eed may become correct and sound, taken from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger may Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon himespecially in the two important matters of tawheed and shirk.
And the Shaikh may Allaah have mercy on him has not mentioned these principles form his own self or his own thoughts as many of those who have gone astray do.
Part 1 taken these principles from the Book of Allaah, the Sunnah and seerah of the Messenger of Allaah may Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him. So when you come to know and understand these principles, it will be easy for you to gain knowledge and recognition of tawheed, the reason for which Allaah sent His messengers and revealed His Books, as well as knowledge and recognition of shirk which Allaah has arbw against and explained its danger and harm in this world and the Hereafter.
This is a very important matter, rather knowledge of it is more obligatory for you than knowledge of the rulings of salaah, zakaah, the other forms of worship and the rest of the matters of the world.
This is due to the fact that it is the foremost matter and the foundation. As well as the fact that salaah, zakaah, hajj and other forms of worship are not correct if they are not built upon the foundation of correct ageedah, which is pure and sincere tawheed for Allaah, ap Mighty and Majestic.
And he may Allaah have mercy on him has preceded these four principles with a great introduction which contains a supplication for the students of knowledge and an indication of what he is about to say. For verily, he needs Allaah to be his supporter in the world and the Hereafter, so that there is no way for calamities to misguide him, qawwaid in the deen nor in the dunyaa.
The Most High wl He brings raba out from darkness into light. But as for those who disbelieve, their Awliyaa supporters and helpers are Taaghoot everything that is worshipped besides Allaah.
In the world He will support you with guidance and traversing upon the sound manhaj. And in the Hereafter He will support you by entering you into His Paradise eternally without fear, illness, misery, old age and calamities. This is the support of Allaah for His believing slave, in the world and the Hereafter. His saying “and to bless you qadaid you are”: When Allaah blesses you wherever you are, it is the greatest achievement.
Allaah blesses you in your life, food, knowledge. Part 1 deeds and offspring. Wherever you are and wherever you agba, you will be accompanied by blessings.
This is a great goodness and favour from AUaah, qaawid One free and far removed from all imperfections. His saying “to make you from those who are grateful when they are given”: This is in opposition to the one who is ungrateful of the bounty and disregards it. When many people are given a bounty they are ungrateful, they reject it and they spend it on the disobedience of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, and so it becomes qasaid reason for their misery.
As for the one who is gratehrl, then Allaah increases his bounty. So if you desire an increase in the bounties then thank Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, and if you desire for the bounties to cease, then be ungrateful.
His saying “patient when they are tested”: Allaah, the Mighty and Most High, tests His slaves with calamities, adversities, enemies from the disbelievers and hypocrites. So they are in need of patience, not giving up hope, not despairing from the Mercy of Allaah, and being established on their deen and not to waver due to trials or submit to them.
Rather, they are required to be established on their deen and to be patient upon whatever they undergo from difficulties along the course of the tribulations. As opposed to the one who when tested becomes arrba, angry and despairs from the Mercy of Allaah.
So this a is given more tests and trials.
He may Allaah’s peace and blessings be upon him said: So whoever is pleased then he has pleasure from Allaah and whoever is displeased has His displeasure. The messengers, the truthful siddiqoonthe martyrs shuhadaa and the believing slaves of Allaah were all tested but they were patient. As for the hypocrite, then Allaah has said about him: He loses both this world and the Hereafter.
That is the evident loss. Allaah alternates these things between the slaves. The Companions were the greatest of this ummah, so what trials and qawair were they afflicted with? Part 1 Allaah, the Most High, says: We give to men by turns. These tests have occurred to the awliyaa of Allaah, so let him prepare himself, be patient and wait for the relief from Allaah.
And the final outcome is for those who fear Allaah. His saying “those who seek forgiveness when they sin”: As for the one who sins and does not seek forgiveness rather he persists in sinning, then he is a miserable xl.
And refuge is sought with Allaah. However, as for the believing slave, whenever he commits a sin he rushes to seek forgiveness. But ignorance here is the opposite of understanding. So whoever disobeys Allaah is ignorant meaning deficient in understanding, intelligence and humanity.

And he could be knowledgeable but he is jaahil from another viewpoint in the sense that he does not have understanding and firmness in matters. His saying “And repent soon afterwards. There is nobody who is free from sinning but all praise is to Allaah that He has opened the door of forgiveness. So it is upon the slave to follow up sinning with repentance.
But if he does not repent or seek forgiveness, then this is a sign of misery, so he despairs from the mercy of Allaah and shaytaan comes to him and says: The three above-mentioned matters are the mark of happiness.
Whoever has been granted these bounties has achieved happiness and whoever has all or some of them denied from him is miserable. Wawaid 2 Part 2: Explaining Haneefiyyah Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan says: It is that you worship Allaah making the religion purely for Him, as He said, ” And I have not created the jinn and mankind except to worship Me Alone.
This is a supplication from the Shaikh may Allaah have mercy on him and it arva necessary for a teacher to supplicate for his students. And the meaning of obedience to Allaah is compliance to His commands and avoidance of His prohibitions. The Haneef is the one ak accepts Allaah with his heart, his actions and intentions, making all of that for Allaah, and he rejects everything besides Him.
A, Allaah has ordered us to follow the religion of Ibraaheem, “And He has not laid upon you in religion any hardship; it is the religion of your father Ibraaheem. That you worship Allaah making the religion purely for Him. So it is not regarded as worship unless it is free from major and minor shirk. And Allaah has ordered all the creation with this worship as He, the Most High, said: So the wisdom behind creating the creation is for them to worship Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, qawid the religion sincerely for Him.
Four Principles of Shirk «
So amongst the creation are those who comply and those who do not. However, the wisdom behind the creation is this. Part 2 worships other than Allaah has opposed this wisdom behind creating the creation and opposed the command and legislation. Ibraaheem is the father of those prophets who came after him, so all of them are from his offspring And due to this He, the Mighty and Majestic, said: So all the prophets are the children of Ibraaheem may peace be upon himas an honour to him.
And Allaah made him an Imaam, meaning an example to be followed, for the people. Verily, I am going to make you an Imaam for mankind’. All the prophets called the people to the worship of Allaah and to the abandonment of worship of others besides Him, as He, the Most High, said: We have sent among every Ummah community, nation a Messenger proclaiming: Worship Allaah Aloneand avoid Taaghoot all false deities ‘.
Allaah legislates a shari’ah and then abrogates it with another shari’ah until the shari’ah of Islaam came, so it abrogated all the previous legislations and remains until the establishment of the Hour.
As for the foundation of the deen of the prophets, which is tawheed, then it is not abrogated and it will never be abrogated. Their religion is one and it is the deen of Islaam, meaning sincerity to Allaah with tawheed. As for the legislations, then they differ and they are abrogated, as opposed to tawheed and ageedah from the time of Aadam up to the last of the messengers.
All of them called to tawheed and to the worship of Allaah alone, which is obedience to Him in every time, by doing that which He has ordered from His legislation. So when a legislation is abrogated then acting upon the abrogating legislation becomes worship and acting upon the abrogated is not worship of Allaah.
