This book presents a detailed explanation of the classical Islamic concept of God's unity as it relates to faith and acts of religious duties. It also discusses the major areas within which the Islamic unitarian belief (Tawheed) is either nullified or compromised by idolatrous concepts collectively called shirk. The uniqueness of this work lies not only in its thorough treatment of the subject in a fluid and uncomplicated English style but also in its modern presentation of classical theological issues. "I found the book The Fundamentals of Tawheed extremely enlightening, and, in my view, it would undoubtably lead the Muslim and non-Muslim reader to a very clear concept of the foundation of the Islamic faith. Furthermore, the extensive explanatory references to various aspects of shirk goes a long way in clarifying many of the obnoxious idolatrous beliefs and practices which have become prevalent in most world religions, aswell as many parts of the Muslim world." Ghalib Yonkers, Religious Editor, Saudi Gazette, 1991. "This important work is a well researched presentation of the Islamic concept of Monotheism in a very simple English style. Consequently, I humbly suggests that it be on top of the reading list of English speaking Muslims and non-Muslims seeking a deeper understanding of these vital topics" Dr. Maneh AI-Johani, Secretary General, World Assembly of Muslim Youth.
