In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful The Bestower of Mercy


Imaam as-Saa’di (rahimahullaah) said: Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) said: ‘’The Usool (Fundamental Principles of Islaam) revolve around three ahaadeeth:

  1. “The lawful is clear and the unlawful is clear…”
  2. “Indeed, actions are judged by intentions…”
  3. “Whoever performs an action that is not from our affair (i.e. the Qur’aan and the Sunnah) will have it rejected…”

For indeed actions are either commanded or prohibited. In the first hadeeth, the unlawful is mentioned. As for commandments, they (involve) either the intention and aspiration of the heart or the apparent actions and that is the legislated affairs that are in conformity with the Sunnah.’’
