What Books Should We Read To Learn About Our Deen?

Noble Shaykh, we desire that you give us the names of the valueable books in Tawheed and Fiqh?


The books in the science of Tawheed and Islaamic Fiqh of old and of today are numerous, and that which I direct you all to read in the [science of] Tawheed are the following:

al-Usool uth-Thalaatha, and Kashf ush-Shubuhaat, and al-Qawaa'id ul-'Arba'ah, and al-Usool ul-'Eemaan Sittah, and Masaa'il al-Jaahiliyyah, and Kitaab ut-Tawheed, and all of them are from Shaykh Muhammad ibn 'Abdul Wahhaab (rahimahullaah). And after that Kitaab al-Aqeedatul Waasitiyyah, and Kitaabul Hamawiyyah, and both of them are from Shaykh ul-Islaam ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah). And the Nooniyyah of Ibn Qayyim (rahimahullaah) with it's explanation, and al-Hayyaat Fee Dhillil Aqeedatil Islaamiyyah by the writer of these letters [meaning the author is the Shaykh himself], and al-Irshaad by Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan, and al-Aqeedatus Saheehah wa Maa Yudaaduhaa by the Noble Shaykh 'Abdul 'Azeez ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah), and Qawlul Mufeed by al-Fawzaan also, and Kitaab ut-Tawheed of Ibn Khuzaymah, and Kutubus-Sunnah that have been written [and or recorded] in the science of 'Aqeedah are numerous, as I have previously mentioned some of them.

As for the Islaamic Fiqh, likewise the books are numerous, but begin with:

al-Umdah and it's explanation, and the summarized versions of the books of the Hanaabilah, and the Mulakhas al-Fiqhee of al-Fawzaan, and the books of hadeeth that have been explained like the explanation of Umdatul Ahkaam, and Subulus-Salaam [which is the explanation of] Bulughul Maraam, and al-Muntaqaa and it's explanation like Naylul Awtaar, then you precede in the reading of the books while exerting ones' self with the utmost exertion in seeking counsel with those who follow the Salaf in the books that you love to read either by way of telephone or through sending messages.

May Allaah make you all successful in that which pleases Him.
