FUNDAMENTALS OF EEMAN
MENTION OF THE FUNDAMENTALS WITHIN THE QUR’AAN AND SUNNAH
The Qur’aan has clarified these fundamentals within many verses; likewise, our Prophet, upon him be prayers and peace, 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, upon him be prayers and peace, 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 clarified them within the Ahadeeth. From that which has come within the Book of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, is His statement:
لَّيْسَ الْبِرَّ أَن تُوَلُّوا وُجُوهَكُمْ قِبَلَ الْمَشْرِقِ وَالْمَغْرِبِ وَلَٰكِنَّ الْبِرَّ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةِ وَالْكِتَابِ وَالنَّبِيِّينَ
“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 artd 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:
آمَنَ الرَّسُولُ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مِن رَّبِّهِ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ ۚ كُلٌّ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلَائِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِ
“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.” [SoorahAl-Baqarah 2:285]
Allaah, the Glorified and High, clarified here four of the fundamentals within Hisstatement:
Each one believes in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers.
He did not mention the Last Day. However, He mentioned it within the previous verse and within other verses. This is the Sunnah of Allaah within His Book. He mentions the reports from Himself regarding His Names and Attributes, the fundamentals of this religion, the affairs of the Day and Judgment, Paradise, and the Fire, the Messengers and their nations, in various ways such that the reader can find within every place in the Book of Allaah that which will increase him in Eemaan and knowledge; and that he may seek an increase in knowledge in every place within the Book of Allaah and in every Hadeeth from the Messenger of Allaah
