In this episode Shaykh Yahya Rhodus highlights the great virtue of giving charity to relatives as it is “charity twice over” as is narrated by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). He encourages us to give daily in charity, even it is little, but to stay consistent. More specifically he explains how charity given to relatives has a multiplied reward as it helps maintain family bonds. Finally Shaykh Yahya encourages us to be keen on looking where it would be best to give charity.

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.
