The Importance of Spirituality
Shaykh Samir An Nass
Two-Day Lecture Series
Shaykh Samir An Nass teaches the importance of Spirituality in the Daily Life of a Muslim. In this two-day session, Shaykh Samir teaches from the chapter of Spirituality from the text Al-Maqasid by Imam An-Nawawi. We will be uploading all of the sessions throughout the month of April 2020. In the first session, Shaykh Samir explains why we must seek spirituality in our daily life and how spirituality relates to our connection to Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, to our character and to our worship.
In this second session, Shaykh Samir An Nass explains how spirituality has a structure, as well as a reality. Shaykh Samir also goes into detail about the characteristic of humility and how to attain it within ourselves.
In the third session, Shaykh Samir explains why we should have a high aspiration to improve ourselves. We often busy ourselves with what we think is necessary of this world: our job, our possessions, etc. However, Shaykh Samir explains that if we have dependence on Allah, if we have taqwa, we will find Allah’s support in all our affairs.
In this concluding fourth session, Shaykh Samir encourages us to elevate our spiritual selves through reading the Qur’an, the value of tarbiya to help us remove blameworthy character traits while improving our overall adab and more advices to strengthen our spirituality.
