▪️What books do you advise a student of knowledge to read/study?▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

The questioner says: What books do you advise a student of knowledge to read?

📝 Answer:

You should begin by firstly memorising the Qur’an and then the Sunnah. If you’re able, memorise Saheeh Al-Bukhaari and Saheeh Muslim, but if that’s too difficult memorise Riyadh As-Saaliheen and Buloogh Al-Maraam.

We also advise you to study Lum’at Al-i’tiqaad, Aqeedah Al-waasitiyyah, then Aqeedah At-Tahaawiyyah. But before that, you should study Al-Qawaa’id Al-Muthlaa.

You should also study Usool Ath-Thalaathah, Kitaab At-Tawheed and Fat-h Al-Majeed.

And by attending the circles of knowledge taught by the scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah, the various Islamic sciences will become easy for you to understand and you will come to know of more useful books in the different fields of knowledge.

May Allah grant you all success.
