Fundamentals of Eemaan by Shaykh Abdul-Azeez Bin Abdullah Bin Baaz

This is a series of lectures based on the lecture Fundamentals of Eemaan by Shaykh Abdul-Azeez Bin Abdullah Bin Baaz, delivered by Shaykh Abdur Rauf Shakir. May Allah the Exalted; Azzwajal, be pleased with them for their tremendous efforts and reward them abundantly, Aameen.

The Qur’aan has clarified these fundamentals ‎within many verses; likewise, our Prophet, ‎‎(sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), has clarified ‎them within the authentic Sunnah. They are six ‎fundamentals, and they are the fundamentals of ‎Eemaan. They are the fundamentals of the ‎religion; for Eemaan is the entire religion, and it ‎is Islaam and the guidance. It is righteousness ‎and piety. It is that with which Allaah sent the ‎Messenger, (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), from ‎beneficial knowledge and righteous actions. All ‎of it is referred to as Eemaan.

These six ‎fundamentals of our religion have been clarified ‎by the Mighty Book within various places and ‎the trustworthy Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu ‎‎‘alayhi wa sallam) clarified them within the ‎Ahadeeth. From that which has come within the ‎Book of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, is His ‎statement:‎

‎ “It is not Al-Birr (piety, righteousness) ‎that you turn your faces towards east and ‎‎(or) west (in prayers); but Al-Birr is (the ‎quality of) the one who believes in Allaah, ‎the Last Day, the Angels, the Book, the ‎Prophets.” ‎
‎[Soorah Al-Baqarah 2:177]‎

Allaah, Glorified and Exalted be He, clarified ‎here five of the fundamentals of Eemaan. They ‎are:‎
Eemaan in Allaah
The Last Day
The Angels
The Book
The Prophets

The religion revolves around these five ‎fundamentals, inwardly and outwardly. Allaah, ‎the Majestic and High, has said:‎

‎ “The Messenger (Muhammad) believes in ‎what has been sent down to him from his ‎Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one ‎believes in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, ‎and His Messengers. They say, “We make ‎no distinction between one another of ‎His Messengers.” ‎
‎[Soorah Al-Baqarah 2:285]
