Stations of the Wayfarers (Section 2: The Gateways) – 6: Renunciation & Scrupulousness- Shaykh Walead Mosaad

Shaykh Walead Mosaad continues to look at the fruits of faith, covering Harawi’s Manazil al-Sa’irīn (Stations of the Wayfarers). In this session, he covers the sixth and seventh gateways to wayfaring, renunciation (zuhd) and scrupulousness (waraʿ). Shaykh Walead explains on the meaning of renunciation and its three hierarchical levels listed in the text. They are: renunciation (1) from the doubtful, after leaving the unlawful, (2) from excess beyond necessities, and finally (3) from renunciation. He moves on to look at scrupulousness, what it means, and its three levels: (1) avoiding abominations, (2) keeping within the limits of the completely unobjectionable, and (3) scrupulously avoiding every distractor.

This is part of the series presented in Ramadan 2018: “Stations of the Wayfarers: Fruits of the Branches of Faith.” In this seven-part series, Shaykh Walead Mosaad explores the fruits of the branches of faith, looking at the ten gateways to the paths of spiritual wayfaring found in the second section of Imam Harawi’s Manazil al-Sa’irīn (Stations of the Wayfarers).
