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 having proper manners in Islam, its merits, and how to attain it. Increasing in proper manners towards all of creation is the way of the pious predecessors.
The best way to achieve proper manners is by observing it in those whom one takes as one’s exemplars. Shaykh Abdurragmaan gives many examples of those from the past who not only preferred others over themselves. But also knew of the importance of proper manners, that without proper manners one will not progress in Islam.
