Futuwwa (Spiritual Chivalry): Sharing Wealth with Friends and Hospitality – Shaykh Yahya Rhodus – Al-Maqasid Podcast

According to Imam Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al Sulami (d. 412 AH, 1034 CE) in his book, Kitab al-Futuwwa, it is from futuwwa to (1) to allow your brother (sister) to use your wealth as if it were his own and (2) to love having guests and showing hospitality. In this session, Shaykh Yahya explains these two additional traits of spiritual chivalry (futuwwa) through numerous ahadith and stories of the Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu alaihi wa salam. He also explains why Prophet Ibrahim, alaihi as-salam, was called “The Father of Guests.”
