Description from the publisher:
These six principles which indicate the power of Allah the Blessed and Exalted; and it is a sign from the signs of the greatness of His Ability that He clarified these six great principles in His Book; with complete clarity such that the common people understand them; not to mention the students of knowledge; and not to mention the scholars. The common people understand them; but despite this many of the intellectuals of the world have erred in respect to them. From this we take a very important principle and it is: The intelligence of a person and his acumen alone is not sufficient. For this reason Shaykh of Islam (Ibn Taymiyyah) may Allah have mercy upon him said about the philosophers: 'They were given intelligence but not given righteousness.' Thus intelligence alone is not enough; it is a must that intelligence is connected to the Book and the Sunnah; with understanding of the Book and the Sunnah; emanating from the speech of Allah and the speech of His messenger peace be upon him.
