Explanation of the Hadith of Jibril
About the Teachings of Islam

Coming in July 2010CE - inshaa` Allaah

Shaykh 'Abdul-Muhsin Ibn Hamad al-'Abbaad said,

So I have desired for a long time to write an individual explanation for the hadīth of Jibrīl, which comprises an explanation of Islām, īmān and ihsān.  Indeed, the Prophet (sallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam) said at the end of this hadīth,

"This was Jibrīl, he came to you in order to teach you your Religion."

And that goal has been actualised by the virtue of Allāh by the publication of this explanation in the year 1424H.

An Early Book Review


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

I would like to give some insight into the upcoming book from Sunnah Publishing, The explanation of the Hadith of Jibril About the teachings of Islam, written by The Noble Scholar, the Muhaddith, Al-'Allamah 'Abdul-Muhsin Ibn Hamad al-Abbaad [Professor, Islaamic University of al-Madeenah, Saudi Arabia].  May Allah reward the Shaykh with the Jannatul-Firdaus for his efforts, ameen. May Allah reward our dear brothers and sisters at Sunnah Publishing for taking the time to make this book available to the English speaking readers, ameen.

This book will be a great benefit for all, Inshallah.  In it the Shaykh explains the well-known Hadith of Jibril, which not only lays down the foundations of Islam but also the obligations of the Sunnah.  Ibn Daqeeq al-Id (d.701H) said in describing this Hadith, "So it is like a mother for the Sunnah.  Just as al-Fatihah is the mother of the Qur'an, because it comprehensively gathers together the meanings of the Qur'an."  This tremendous statement and many others from the Salaf can be found throughout this robust book.

It is complied in an eloquent manner beginning with the text of the Hadith and followed by an explanation of each line.  Shaykh 'Abdul-Muhsin extracts many benefits from the Hadith in order to teach the reader the basics of Islam, Emaan, and Ihsan.  Overall, the book is very enlightening and should be pondered over with sincerity.  May Allah make it easy on us and increase each one of us in knowledge of this beautiful Deen, ameen.

The book before you - noble reader - is a detailed explanation of the famous hadith of Jibril, at the end of which, the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said, "This was Jibril, he came to you in order to teach you your Religion." Due to the many benefits contained within this book, the Muhaddith of al-Madinah, Shaykh 'Abdul-Muhsin al-'Abbad may Allah preserve him decided to write a book dedicated solely to the treasures found in this hadith. The Scholars of the past have mentioned the comprehensive nature of this hadith in various places:

So al-Qadi 'Iyad said,

"Indeed, this hadith comprises an explanation of all the acts of worship, the outward ones and the inward ones, from the tenets of iman, the actions of the limbs and the sincerity of the souls and it cautions against the harmful actions; to the extent that the all of the Shari'ah sciences refer back to it and branch out from it."

And al-Qurtubi said,

"This hadith deserves to be called Ummus-Sunnah (mother of the Sunnah), due to what it contains from comprehensive knowledge of the Sunnah."
