After the demise of the Prophet ﷺ, Muslim scholars noticed that an excessive love for this world became widespread amongst the Muslims. In order to combat this, they thought deeply on what the Qur'an and the Sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ had to say on the issue, and began to collect all the Hadiths related to Zuhd to ease the study of this topic. Loosely translated as 'abstinence', Zuhd is one of the most impactful qualities that the Prophet ﷺ and his companions (r) possessed that allowed them to live through this world without getting so attached to the dunya that they would lose sight of the afterlife.
Join Shaykh Navaid Aziz this Ramadan as he teaches us the Hadiths on Zuhd from the famous collection of al-Hafidh Ibn Hajar al-'Asqalāni, titled Bulūgh al-Marām. Expect this class to leave you with a clear and balanced vision on how to navigate through this life, with the afterlife in center view!
