Ep. 84: “How to Find a Shaykh”
Some of my thoughts on how to find a Shaykh. What sort of criteria should you use to take religious knowledge from someone? How do you know if someone is qualified and wont lead you astray? These and many more are the types of questions I seek to answer in this episode.
Understanding the Muslim Mind
If we could take all of Islamic intellectual history, what sort of patterns and principles could we deduce? More importantly, if we found someone who actually knew all this information, what would they look like, think like, talk like, etc.?
When I got married on June 23, 2001, I had no idea or concept that my marriage could/would last for twenty years (alhamdulilah!). Of course, I didn’t get married with the thought that it would end, I just never actively conceptualized what 20 years of marriage would look like. And now that I am about to celebrate this unbelievably awesome milestone with the love of my life, I want to pass on to you some of the lessons that helped make our marriage last and keeps the love and passion burning bright.MORE
