Assalaamuaalaikum wa rahmathullahi wa barakathuhu!

Jazakallahu khair for your post. I would recommend you a book by Shaikh Nasiruddeen Albanee (rahimahullah) called 'Waseelah' which is translated into English. I advice you to learn aqueedah and all the issues of belief yourself first, practice it and then call people towards it for this is the correct methodology.

Refer to 'The intermediates between Allah and His servants' by Shaikh Al Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah).
'Ziyarath al Quboor Wal Isthinjathu bil Maqboor ' by Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah).
Also refer to Fath-hul-Majeed sharh kitab at Tauheed, Usool us Thalaathah with the explanation of Shaikh Uthaimeen (rahimahullah) and Kitab at Tauheed by Shaikh Saleh al Fauzaan (hafidhahullah).
There is audio of Shaikh Obaid (hafidhahullah) on Usool us Thalaathah made available by

If you are in the United States, contact the brothers at Masjid Rahmah to get 33 tapes on Usool us Thalathah by Abu Uwais.

I seek forgivness of Allah for myself and you and may Allah give us sound creed and ability to practice the deen upon the methodology of Salaf us Saalih. May Allah help us in gathering with the scholars and learning from them as the salaf gathered around the ulemaa.

Wa'assalaamuaalaikum wa rahmathullahi wa barakathuhu!

Our da?wah and our ?aqeedah is more beloved to us than our own selves, our wealth and our offspring.  So we are not prepared to part with it for gold, nor silver.  We say this so that no one may have hope in buying out our da?wah, nor should he think that  it is possible for him to purchase it from us for deenaar or dirham. Since the politicians already know this about us, so they have despaired of buying it from us with granted positions or wealth..Shaikh, the Allamah, Muqbil ibn Hadee Al Waa'di'ee (Rahimahullah).
