Shaykh Faisal Abdur-Razzaq on Classical Islam

In this illuminating interview with Soul of Islam Radio, Shaykh Faisal Abdur-Razzaq sheds light on key aspects of Classical Islam, particularly as they relate to the contemporary practice of the modern Muslim.

Beginning with the Hadith of Jibril (as), Shaykh Faisal describes the Three Levels of Islam and the vital importance of tasawwuf and tazkiyya, also known as Sufism and self-purification, on the path to developing greater compassion and mercy in the soul’s evolution towards the Divine Presence.

Shaykh Faisal calls upon Muslims and believers to be “Ambassadors of Mercy,” and to thus best exemplify Islam and Islamic Spirituality. He adds the vital necessity of keeping the company of the pious, sincere and righteous as the means to follow as-Sirat al-Mustaqeem, the Straight Path.

In this succinct and highly valuable interview, Shaykh Faisal additionally elucidates on the absolute centrality of Rasulullah, the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, when seeking to understand and practice Islam, and that it is the prophetic example of mercy and compassion that will protect the pious from the misguidance of extremism.

Also, Shaykh Faisal clarifies the importance of the Four Madhabs, or Schools of Islamic Jurisprudence, as well as the two Schools of Aqeedah, or Islamic Doctrines.
