All praise is due to Allaah alone; may He send salutations and exalt the mention of the seal of all Prophets and Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad, his family and all his companions.

It is from the mercy of Allah that He has legislated many deeds through which people can earn great rewards. In this leaflet, we will mention some of the acts which Muslims should exert extra effort in performing in order to increase their account in their record of good deeds.

The first Five Ways to Earn Reward from Allaah:

1. Repentance done sincerely for Allaah: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Allah will forgive the sins of anybody who repents before the sun rises from the west (i.e., a major sign for the Day of Judgment).” (Muslim) He (PBUH) also said: “Allaah accepts the repentance of His slaves until the time of their death (i.e., when the soul is departing).” (Tirmidhi)
2. ‘Umrah during Ramadhaan: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Performing ‘Umrah during it (Ramadhaan) is like performing Hajj with me.” (Bukhaari & Muslim)
3. Recitation of the Qur’aan: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Recite the Qur’aan, for it will intercede for you (with Allaah) on the Day of Judgment.” (Muslim)
4. Learning and teaching the Qur’aan: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur’aan and teaches it to others.” (Bukhaari)
5. The Mention of Allah: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Shall I not tell you about the best of your deeds, the most pure (i.e., righteous and sincere) of them to your Creator, that which will entitle you to the highest ranks for the sake of Allaah, which is better than fighting your enemies in Jihaad where you kill them or they kill you (i.e., you become martyrs)?” The people replied: “Yes, O Messenger of Allah.” So he (PBUH) said: “The mention of Allaah.” (Tirmidhi) Continue reading

This book gives a clear explanation of the Muslim sound Creed which is the core of the religion of Islam, as the belief in Tawhid (monotheism) is the purpose for which Allah created both mankind and jinn, and thus, those whose belief in Tawhid is corrupt, are not considered Muslims. It is a commentary on the Book of Tawhid written by Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab.

In this book, Dr. Salih al Fawzan has projected light on doctrinal issues of utmost importance in a genuine and reader-friendly style. This translated version of the book fulfills a long-standing need on the part of English-speaking Muslims for a brief, introductory book in Tawhid. It is a valuable book for novice readers, be they Muslims or non-Muslims, who do not have thorough knowledge of the sound creed, The chapters of this book focus on major issues in Tawhid such as the definition of Tawhid, virtue of Tawhid, warning against acts of shirk (polytheism), the Prophet’s Maintenance of monotheism, and other topics.

Dr. Salih al Fawzan (born in 1935) has obtained a PhD in Islamic jurisprudence and has a high profile in teaching jurisprudence. He is a member of many academic institutions including the Board of Senior Ulema, the Permanent Committee for Fatwa and Research. He has written more than sixty published works covering Muslim Creed, Islamic jurisprudence and Muslim’s conduct. Continue reading

There are many teaching methods with different means and aids.

This book, as such, is indispensable for everyone who is concerned with education in general, and Islamic knowledge in particular. Continue reading
