Futuwwa (Spiritual Chivalry): To Begin Eating Only After Everyone Else Has Started – Shaykh Yayha Rhodus

The next trait of Futuwwa discussed in Imam Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al Sulami’s (d. 412 AH, 1034 CE) book, Kitab al-Futuwwa, is to begin eating only after everyone else has started eating. Although this trait may appear to be small and easy, Shaykh Yahya explains why you cannot have a leader without this fundamental etiquette. He then discusses the meaning of leadership with examples from the Qu’ran and Hadith. Additionally, a story about a righteous scholar, a rope, and a stone is told, providing a beautiful lesson on consistency.
