Reading books of a doubtful nature

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I would like to know about Nawaqid al Islam by Muhammed ibn Abdul Wahhab. I have asked around at bookstores asking about it but no one has heard of it. I read it is about shirk and nullifiers so I would of like to read it but I cant understand if it is reputable to read? Is it something that is debatable? Can you please shed some light on the above mentioned book?


A: Books that are of a doubtful nature and don’t conform to the teaching of our greater ulama should be avoided.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
