Futuwwa (Spiritual Chivalry): Respect Your Friends and Move For Them; Remain Upright – Shaykh Yayha Rhodus









In this next session, Shaykh Yahya shares some beautiful insights about the deen, specifically discussing how to benefit from the night and day of Jumu’ah, including the hour during which supplications are answered according to the well-known hadith. He then discusses two more traits of Futuwwa (spiritual chivalry) as mentioned in Imam Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al Sulami’s (d. 412 AH, 1034 CE) book, Kitab al-Futuwwa. Shaykh Yahya first gives a lengthy discussion on respecting one’s friends and moving for them, and the corresponding ayah in Surah al-Mujadila (58:11). The session then concludes with a discussion on being upright as forth in the hadith, “Say, ‘I believe in Allah and then remain upright.’”
