Futuwwa (Spiritual Chivalry): Etiquettes Concerning Guests – Shaykh Yayha Rhodus

Shaykh Yahya discusses three more traits of the people of Paradise in this fifth lecture on Imam Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al Sulami’s (d. 412 AH, 1034 CE) book Kitab al-Futuwwa: (1) going to a close friend’s house uninvited; (2) not finding fault with food; and (3) generosity to guests. He also explains how gratitude to the Giver of Blessings, subhanahu wa ta’ala, is more virtuous than gratitude for the blessing itself.
