This podcast is based on al-Fawa’id al-Mukhtarah, one of the seminal works of the great scholar al-Habib Zayn bin Sumayt. The book contains advice on a wide range of subjects that are relevant to daily life, drawing on examples from the Haba’ib from Hadramout. We will be exploring this advice within the context of Muslims living in the West, with the aim of deriving guidance from it on ways to deal with modern challenges.
In this podcast, Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan explains the importance of the student having a Shaykh. He explains what are the three different kinds of Shuyukh. That is the Shaykh of Opening, Shaykh of Nurturing, and the Shaykh of Learning. He goes on to explain how one’s Shaykh helps with their connection with Allah Most High. Shaykh Abdurragmaan explains the merits and qualities of each of the different kind of Shuyukh and ends by giving examples of these merits and qualities.
