Futuwwa (Spiritual Chivalry): Emptying the Heart from Everything Other Than Allah (swt) – Shaykh Yayha Rhodus

In this second podcast exploring the concept of Futuwwa (“spiritual chivalry”) based on Imam Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al Sulami’s (d. 412 AH, 1034 CE) work, Shaykh Yahya first discusses the special honor of being a descendent of the Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu alaihi wa salam, and recites a powerful du’a of Imam al-Haddad recognizing this honor. He also explains how Futuwwa, in essence, entails emptying one’s heart from everything other than Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala.
