About this episode

Quote of Al-Bukharee that was used by the author for additional proof on the four principles.

  • 2 slight variations from the original quote of (Al-Bukhari) and why:
  • Who is Al-Bukhari?
  • Why did the author use a chapter title from al- Bukhari to substantiate his point?
  • Comments on the verse (Know that none has the right to be worshiped except Allah, and ask forgiveness of your Lord for your sins)
  • Rule in Usool al-Fiqh. Does speech directed to the Prophet PBUH include us?

The structure of the Book, Al-Usool Althalatha.

  • Chapter 1: The Four Fundamental Principles.
  • Chapter 2: The Three Matters.

a. Lordship with 6 sub-categories

b. Shirk - Tawheed Al-Uluhieh

c. Statement on Wala and Bara

  • Chapter 3: Statement on Milet Ibrahim
  • Chapter 4: The Three Fundamental Principles (The core of the book)

It's disputed if Chapter 1, 2, and 3 were added as an intro by the author or his students.


Know may Allah have mercy upon you, that it is obligatory upon every Muslim, male and female, to learn and act upon the following three matters:

  • Why did he specify females when they are already addressed
  • He specified (Muslim). Are non-Muslims not addressed in these matters?
  • Are non-Muslims addressed in principle and secondary matters?

The first of the three matters here has 6 sub-categories:

  1. That Allah created us
  2. Proof on that from the Koran, Sunnah, intellect (al-Shafey, Ahmad, Abu Hanifah)
  3. Very strong and moving poem on Allah SWT The Creator by Ibrahim Ali
  4. A Bedouins response when asked about the existence of Allah?
