Futuwwa (Spiritual Chivalry): Do Not Find Fault With Your Friend – Shaykh Yayha Rhodus

In this fourth lecture on Imam Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al Sulami’s (d. 412 AH, 1034 CE) book Kitab al-Futuwwa, Shaykh Yahya discusses the virtue of not finding fault with another Muslim. As an example, it is mentioned how the great inheritors of the Prophet, sallallahu alaihi wa salam, although blessed with inner sight, look for what is the best in others and do not search for their faults. Prior to this discussion, Shaykh Yahya translates the poetry of Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him) on the state of a believer who loves His, subhanahu wa ta’ala, beloved.
