What is the first thing that a Muslim should learn? -Shaykh Saalih Fawzaan

In the name of Allah the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

What is the first thing that a Muslim should learn?

by Shaykh Saalih bin Fawzaan al-Fawzaan may Allah preserve him 

The shaykh mentions this point of benefit in the beginning of his explanation of “Qawaaidul Arba’ah”:

“This is a very important matter! Knowledge of (Tawheed and Shirk) is more incumbent upon you than the rulings of: siyaam (fasting), salaah (prayer), zakah (obligatory alms), etc. It is the foremost matter and foundation because, salaah, zakah, hajj, and other acts of ibaadaat are not correct if it is not built upon the foundation of correct aqeedah, and that is to have tawheed sincerely for Allaah azza wa Jal.”

وهو ألزم عليك من معرفة أحكام الصلاة والزكاة والعبادات وسائر الأمور الدينيّة، لأن هذا هو الأمر الأوّلي والأساس، لأنّ الصلاة والزكاة والحج وغيرها من العبادات لا تصحّ إذا لم تُبنَ على أصل العقيدة الصحيحة، وهي التوحيد الخالص لله ـ عزّ وجل ـ
