This podcast is based on al-Fawa’id al-Mukhtarah, one of the seminal works of the great scholar al-Habib Zayn bin Sumayt. The book contains advice on a wide range of subjects that are relevant to daily life, drawing on examples from the Haba’ib from Hadramout. We will be exploring this advice within the context of Muslims living in the West, with the aim of deriving guidance from it on ways to deal with modern challenges.
In this podcast, Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan begins by cautioning the student to act upon one’s knowledge. How not acting upon one’s knowledge is madness as explained by Imam Ghazali. The one who acts upon their knowledge will be granted tremendous insight.
Shaykh Abdurragmaan goes on to give examples from the earlier Muslims how they were very keen to act upon their knowledge. So much so they would not admonish others until they were acting on what they were admonishing others about.
Shaykh Abdurragmaan ends by giving an important counsel to not deem anything of the Qur’an and Sunna small.
