Podcast: Spiritual Asceticism in Islam

In this episode of Soul of Islam Radio, we explore the pillar of Zuhd, which can roughly be translated as spiritual asceticism in Islamic Spirituality.

You will learn about the essence of Zuhd through the dissection of the Arabic word, from Qur’anic verses, and through the teachings and application of spiritual asceticism in Islam by the Prophet Muhammad (saws).

You will see how layers of misconceptions have created barriers between the seeker and the reality of the practice of spiritual asceticism in the heart.

By applying spiritual asceticism in Islam, you will also become familiar with the idea of physical attachment and how the dependance of the individual on the world can shift one’s consciousness. You will learn how this dependance shifts the mind from the state of remembrance and awareness, to the lower state of forgetfulness, uncertainty and ingratitude.
