Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Name of Book: “Tayseer al-‘Azeez al-Hameed fee Sharhi Kitaab at-Tawheed”, by Shaikh Sulaimaan b. Abdullaah b. Muhammad b. Abdul-Wahhaab (d. 1233H).

He was the grandson of Shaikhul-Islaam Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhaab (died, 1206H, rahimahullaah)

This was the first explanation of Kitaabut-Tawheed. It is considered amongst the lengthier explanations, but the Shaikh still did complete the explanation. He finished at the end of the “Chapter: Concerning What Has Been Related Concerning The Deniers Of Al-Qadr.” Then he passed away (rahimahullaah), being killed by Ibraaheem al-Pasha, and thus seven chapters were left incomplete.

Specefic characteristics of this explanation:

1. It is considered amongst the largest explanations.
2. He narrated extensively from Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibnul-Qayyim and Ibn Hajr.
3. He gave the tafseers of the Quranic Aayaat.
4. He gave concern to takhreej and sourcing the Ahaadeeth with their chains of narrations.
5. It is distinguished with numerous Prophetic Ahaadeeth and Aathaar in the Sharh – their number reaching 615 with repetition. That is significant.


Every Sharh that was compiled after Shaikh Sulaimaan b. Abdullaah benefitted from his explanation. Shaikh Hamad b. ‘Ateeq (d. 1301H rahimahullaah) summarised this explanation in his book entitled, “Ibtaalut-Tandeed Bikhtisaar Sharh Kitaab at-Tawheed”. This was published with checking, Daar Atlas al-Khudaraa, Riyadh, 1424H.

Other editions include the Tahqeeq and checking of Shaikh Ahmad Shakir (rahimahullaah).
