- Chapter 14: The Lawful and Prohibited
- Chapter 15: On the Duties of Brotherhood.
Life isn’t always smooth sailing, and for each one of us, our rizq tends to fluctuate from time to time. Even though Allah said that He made it compulsory on Himself to provide for His servants, there is still a need for us to know the adab of earning rizq, which is the key to earning prosperity.
What is rizq? How do we use the rizq that Allah showers upon each one of us in a way that would please Him the most? Why is it that our rizq fluctuates from time and time, and what do we do when it fluctuates? How can we protect, take care of, share, and pass on the rizq that Allah bless us with, and why is it important to do this? These are some of the questions that will be answered in this course.
Course Text : Ihya Ulumuddin
Overflowing with gems of spiritual wisdom and Light, Imam al Ghazali’s magnum opus, Ihya Ulumuddin, has been singled out by the scholars as the book that (after the Quran and the compilation of Hadith) suffices for the spiritual guidance of the Muslims today.
It is also one of the greatest classical texts ever written in the history of traditional Islamic scholarship. Imam al-Ghazali, the “Proof of Islam”, masterfully weaves together Islamic teachings, stories, hadith, and life lessons in a practical yet subtle way. This is a book that, for centuries, has become the basis for the physical, mental, and spiritual transformation of so many lives all over the world.
