Tawheed in Arabic means attributing Oneness to Allaah and describing Him as being One and Unique, with no partner or peer in His Essence and Attributes. The Arabs say waahid, ahad and waheed, all meaning one. Allaah is Waahid, meaning that He has no rivals or peers in any way. So Tawheed means knowing Allaah is One, with none like unto Him. Whoever does not acknowledge Allaah in these terms and does not describe Him as being One with no partner or associate does not believe in Tawheed. With regard to the shar’i definition of Tawheed, it means believing in Allaah alone as God and Lord and attributing to Him alone all the attributes of Lordship and divinity. It may be defined as follows: Believing that Allaah is One with no partner or associate in His Lordship (ruboobiyyah), divinity (uloohiyyah) or names and attributes (al-asma’ wa’l-sifaat).

Within Islam, there exists no complete set of commands and punishments that reads like a legal document. Muslims throughout history have endeavored to resolve societal, legal, political, and cultural problems by consulting the authoritative texts, the Qur’an and the sunna, as well as their own reason. Thus, Islamic law emerged, shaped and enhanced in this way by Muslim scholars, as a bulk of resources of revelation and a methodology for making rules. This Islamic jurisprudence literature (fiqh) is divided into two parts, the science of the methodology (usūl al- fiqh) and the science of the actual rules or legal field (furū al- fiqh).The methodology utilized for making rules is called usūl al-fiqh and it was developed in the classical Islamic period. The science of usūl al-fiqh is fairly thought to be the most significant research method organized by Muslim scholars. In this course, the book 'al-Waraqaat' by Imam al-Haramain al-Juwaini (رحمه الله) will be taught with an in-depth explanation. Explanations will be based on the works of Shaykh ibn 'Uthaymin, Shaykh 'Abdul Muhsin al-'Abbaad, Shaykh 'Abdullah al-Fawzan and others.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “None of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him than his father, his child and all the people.” (Bukhaari, 15; Muslim, 44) There has never been a human being so loved, well-respected and followed as Muhammad ?, the final messenger of Allah. There has never been a person who has changed world history so dramatically as Muhammad ? and his message. The Prophet ? was the single most important person in the history of the world. A journey through the life of the best of creation, the Prophet Muhammad ?. A look at his life, his struggles, his victories and how Islam was established. Beyond a shadow of doubt, the biography of Prophet Muhammad ? manifestedly represents an exhaustive embodiment of the sublime Divine Message that he communicated in order to deliver the human race from the swamp of darkness and polytheism to the paradise of light and monotheism. An image, authentic as well as comprehensive, of this Message is therefore only attainable through careful study and profound analysis of both backgrounds and issues of such a biography.
Bulugh al-Maram is the shortened name of the collection of hadith by al-Hafidh ibn Hajar al-Asqalani entitled, Bulugh al-Maram min Adillat al- Ahkam (translation: Attainment of the Objective According to Evidences of the Ordinances). It contains a total of 1358 hadiths., At the end of each hadith narrated in Bulugh al-Maram, al-Hafidh ibn Hajar mentions who collected that hadith originally. The Hadith are generally from Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawud, Jami at-Tirmidhi, 'Sunan al-Nasa'i, 'Sunan ibn Majah, Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal and other books of Hadith. Bulugh al-Maram holds a unique distinction in that all the hadith compiled in the book have been the sources for fiqh (Islamic Jurisprudence) rulings. Among the topic that this book covers are subjects ranging from marriage, business transactions to other more implicit aspect of the religion such as the five pillars. One more distinctive feature, along with others, is that the versions have also been shortened to present just the main purpose of the Hadith according to its classification under the chapter. Because of these preferential qualities, Bulugh Al-Maram has been accepted widely and is among the most sought-after books of Ahadith.
