Fiqh’ul ‘Ibadaat (Understanding Worship) by Shaykh Muhammad ibnul ‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullah) is a tremendous work outlining, then detailing how we all should Understand Worship of Allah (sSubhanahu wa Ta’aala). Everything that constitutes worship – and everything that negates worship.
The Essay on Usool Al Fiqh, is the most understandable & easy to learn from work on Fiqh I know of. We used this particular Risala, translated by my Shaykh, Dr Saleh’ As Saleh’ and via it, I fell in love with Usool Al Fiqh.

The Concise Fiqh-Imaam As Sa’adi, is an audio lecture series by Dr Saleh As Saleh (Audio|English) that details the points of usool Al Fiqh Imaam Sa’asee brings in his work. Dr. Saleh’ (rahimahullah) was my teacher & friend and he & his PalTalk lessons are sorely missed, May Allah bless him with Paradise, Ameen (say Ameen).
