...Tawheed is the very foundation of Islam on which all the other pillars and principles depend. If one's Tawheed is not sound, the rest of one's Islam becomes, in effect, a series of pagan rituals. p.iv

Despite the importance of this doctrine, there is a dearth of books about this subject written specifically with the English-speaking Muslim in mind. This book is a welcome remedy to this problem. It provides a detailed discussion of a complex subject in a straightforward style, which with a few exceptions, is very readable. It includes an index of the hadiths cited, as well as an informative bibliography. Many parts of it were originally prepared as instructional materials for the Minaret ar-Riyadh English Medium Islamic School and have been circulated in Muslim communities across the United States and in the West Indies. Despite its apparently simple style, it is based upon deep and thorough scholarship. The author advises:

Although this book is based on the approach used in classical Arabic texts on the science of Tawheed such as al-'Aqeedah at-Tahaaweeyah, I have deliberately avoided the presentation of the theological issues found in classical works which have little or no relevance to modern English readers. p. vii

The foundation of the author's exposition of Tawheed is laid out in Chapter 1. It is devoted entirely to a detailed discussion of the meaning of the term Tawheed ("unification") and its three categories:

1) Tawheed ar-Ruboobeyah ("Maintaining the Unity of Lordship)

2) Tawheed al-Asmaa was-Sifaat ("Maintaining the Unit of Allah's Names and Attributes")

3) Tawheed al-'Ebaadah ("Maintaining the Unity of Allah's Worship")
