Ustaadh Abu Iyaad goes through a hadeeth using the concise explanation f Sheikh Saalih Al Fawzaan. The hadith is used by the scholars as an evidence for the five pillars of Islam: The Testimony of Faith ( That no diety is worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammed, peace be upon him, is the Messenger of Allah), Prayer, Charity, Fasting and Hajj.

The speaker gives a beautiful analogy of a building, emphasising the importance of these pillars and foundations.

He breaks down the meaning of the testimony of faith of the Muslim, and four affairs which follow on from that.

To really contemplate and understand this testimony of faith which the Muslim utters daily, listen to the audio.

All of this is part of his series of classes which goes through the Forty Hadeeth of Imam An-Nawawi, a compilation of hadeeth which all issues of the of the shariah revolve around.
