191-The Rawha- Guidance for Seekers- Making Moral Choices – Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani begins with a counsel on returning anything unclear to the Quran, sunna, and the religious manners—scholars’ applications of the Quran and sunna to particular life circumstances. He shows that this clear religious guidance is the basis of Islamic spirituality, and that religious literacy is needed to make moral judgments. This requires grounding ourselves in religious knowledge and having a daily connection with the Qur’an and hadith. Shaykh Faraz moves on to remind to take the opinion of someone whose religion & judgment one trust if something remains unclear. He explains the role of the spiritual heart in religious answers versus other inner faculties, in light of the hadith “Seek an answer from your heart.” The question one should ask one’s heart, he clarifies, is which choice is more likely to be most acceptable, pleasing, or beloved to Allah. He closes with a counsel on restraining one’s limbs through knowledge and through the consciousness of Allah Most High’s closeness.
