30 – Taqwa and Good Character


In this episode Shaykh Yahya Rhodus highlights what enables people to enter paradise more than anything else: piety (taqwa) and good character, as was taught by Prophet Muhammad. Conversely, he also highlights the greatest things that enter people into the fire: the mouth and private parts. Shaykh Yahya explains the concepts of taqwa and good character how they are attained.

The Content of Character is a remarkable collection of sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. Chosen by the scholar, Shaykh Al-Amin Ali Mazrui and translated by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, this book was published to great critical acclaim.

Shaykh Al-Amin intended to show that progress among Muslims required not the abandonment of Islam but the recovery of the original spirit of Islamic enlightenment.

In this podcast series for SeekersHub, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus does a commentary on these concise and yet comprehensive sayings, with a special focus on character-building, morals, good manners and ethics.
