“And know that root of these problems is love of leadership and forgetting what is sure to come.” – Imam Ibn Ashir.
Imam Abdul-Wahid ibn Ashir’s great work, The Helping Guide, has been highly regarded by scholars and used to teach Law, Creed, and Spirituality for hundreds of years. The work starts with an introduction to spirituality, explaining the most basic principles and moving up. Many have benefitted through the immense wisdom contained within these words.
In this short course, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus brings life to this text through his clear and profound explanations. We learn that the spiritual path is one of removing faults and taking on praiseworthy qualities; the former being more important.
The importance of repentance is discussed in detail, with it being a realignment to one’s destination after being taken off course by sins. We also learn about the importance of sincerity and renewing one’s intention, especially after slipping up. This course is the perfect place to start to learn about the science of inward purification, and a beautiful reminder for everyone.
