    Human Beings Before Buildings – The Prophetic Legacy – Shaykh Walead Mosaad

    Human Beings Before Buildings – The Prophetic Legacy – Shaykh Walead Mosaad

    In this khutba, Shaykh Walead Mosaad explains how the message of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) is for all times and places. The most important thing of one’s daily life is following the sunna. One of the main points of the sunna is to build great people. The prophetic message came to establish great people,  not just great institutions. What makes human beings great is that they a creation of Allah Most High. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him) built the best of human being. He (peace and blessings be upon him) was sent to perfect noble character. One’s noble character should be manifest in one's dealings with those whom they spend the most time with (i.e. one’s family). A question all believers should ask themselves is when one is with their family, does there presence bring a smile to one’s family? Shaykh Walead ends by reminding the believers that when the companions were with the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) they  felt as though they were the most beloved by Him (peace and blessings be upon him).

    Islamic Spirituality Explained – 01 – Introduction to Sufism and 1st Aphorism of Ibn At’illah (rebroadcast)

    Islamic Spirituality Explained – 01 – Introduction to Sufism and 1st Aphorism of Ibn At’illah (rebroadcast)

    In this podcast Shaykh Walead Mosaad begins by defining some of the various definitions for tasawwuf (Islamic spirituality), and how the work of Ibn At'illah, The Hikam (aphorisms) is a book of the Muslim umma.  The heart of tasawwuf is actualizing tawheed, monotheism. Each aphorism builds on the previous one. Shaykh Walead explains the first aphorism: "From among the signs of dependance on one's actions, is the diminished hope on the occurrence of missteps.” One should not be depending on one’s own works, rather one should depend solely on Allah. Everything from Allah is a blessing whether one recognizes it or not. Actualizing tawheed is finding blessing in everything.

    Stations of the Wayfarers (Section 2: The Gateways) – 5: Submissive Humility – Shaykh Walead Mosaad

    Stations of the Wayfarers (Section 2: The Gateways) – 5: Submissive Humility – Shaykh Walead Mosaad

    Shaykh Walead Mosaad continues looking at the fruits of faith, covering Harawi's Manazil al-Sa'irīn (Stations of the Wayfarers). In this session, he looks at the fifth gateway to wayfaring, submissive humility (ikhbat; "the inception of security from reversal or hesitation")—a beginning of the station of serenity, which he begins by exploring. Shaykh Walead explains the three hierarchical levels (from lowest to highest) of this virtue mentioned by Imam Harawi. They are: (1) that virtue overcome desire, resolve overcome remissness, and seeking overcome comfort, (2) that no intermediary cause diminish one's resolve, that no incident alienate one's heart, no tribulation hinder one's path, and (3) indifference to praise and disparagement, constant reproach of the ego, and blindness to people's shortcomings compared to oneself.
