Futuwwa (Spiritual Chivalry): Introduction – Shaykh Yayha Rhodus

In this series of lectures, Shaykh Yahya introduces Futuwwa, roughly translated at “spiritual chivalry,” as set forth by Imam Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al Sulami (d. 412 AH, 1034 CE) in his book Kitab al-Futuwwa. In Part I, the concept of Futuwwa is thoroughly explored by reviewing how many spiritual giants of the past defined it, culminating with a comprehensive definition by Imam ‘Abdallah ibn Alawi al-Haddad (d. 1132 HA, 1720 CE). Shaykh Yayha discusses how Futuwwa is a way of being that can bring back virtue to the modern world.
