Counsel & Purity of Heart

"Not unto the weak nor unto the sick nor unto those who can find naught to spend is any fault (to be imputed though they stay at home) if they are true to Allah and His messenger. Not unto the good is there any road (of blame). Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." (Qur'an, 9:91)

Book Launch: Hearts Turn by Michael Sugich

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad and Michael Sugich in conversation at Cambridge Muslim College


Hearts Turn: Sinners, Seekers, Saints & The Road To Redemption

Hearts Turn’ is a singular and gripping exploration of the act of 'tawba', a Qur’anic term commonly translated as repentance. In English, repentance is a forbidding word that suggests a puritanical finality. But in Arabic the term 'tawba' is dynamic, meaning to ‘turn’ or ‘return’. 'At-Tawwab' is one of the Names of God, the Oft-Returning or Ever-Relenting. It is an active constant, an ongoing, compassionate reality that renews every moment we are alive. The process of purification is a process of continuous turning.

In ‘Hearts Turn’ Michael Sugich, author of ‘Signs on the Horizons’, tells stories that are harrowing and hilarious, heartrending and bizarre, profane and transcendent, and altogether full of hope, showing how men and women from many parts of the world and many walks of life have turned themselves around and taken a fork in the road toward a higher reality. “This book is a declaration of mercy and certainty. Formed of a collection of stories I’ve experienced, read or heard, about how malleable the human heart can be and how wrongdoing, remorse, need, and yearning intersect with Divine Compassion, Forgiveness and Guidance. It is also about the sudden transitions from confusion to clarity, from sin to virtue, from sleep to wakefulness, from ignorance to knowledge, from foolishness to wisdom. And finally it is about the path of our lives, which leads us gradually, and for those who God favours, inexorably to salvation.”

Crash Course on Islamic History

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad (Tim Winter)’s succinct and yet comprehensive crash course on Islamic History.

Shaykh Murad delivered this seven-part lecture on March 18-19, 2011 in Oslo, Norway.

The audio is courtesy of Muhammad Hüdayi and the www.lastprophet.info Web Portal.

The narrative begins with the Divine statement, “We breathed into him something of Our Spirit,” describing Adam’s creation out of clay and having been given life. The deepest of all mysteries for modern philosophers as for theologians has been this puzzle of the lump of clay that has within it the Divine Spirit.

Murad asserts that as "significant history begins when human beings begin to perceive", at that moment when the clay becomes ‘spiritualized’, one can say that history begins…

In part 2, Murad explores some of the basic principles that need to be considered when examining the history of the umma (community) and what large lessons might be learned from it. In particular, he looks at those which can be described as ‘sharia-oriented’ or theological.

Two of them in particular have been important to Muslims: How does power and statehood work? What is the role of the Muslim regarding political power: should one seek it? What should be one’s relationship to a ruler?

The second is a theological issue: what is actually happening in history? Is history just a kind of puppet show? Is there a reality to cause and effect? And beyond that is the issue of destiny and providence. Is there a discernible pattern – God’s way of dealing with human beings – that can enable us to see history as something that has a religious significance and that can continue to teach us?

In part 3, after presenting the background, Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad points out that Islam does not appear out of a vacuum. He discusses the early story of Islam – when examining the inner history rather than the outward play of the rise and fall of dynasties – which can be characterized by three major themes:

a. The polemic against the indigenous religion of the Arabs

b. The argument against the earlier monotheisms

c. Islam’s internal arguments

In part four, we begin with the story of the encounter between Prophet Muhammad and Christian scholar Waraqa ibn Nawfal and speculation regarding Waraqa’s reading the text in Hebrew.

Murad continues with the first revelation, the first believers and the persecution of the early believers leading to the first emigration to Abyssinia.

In part five, Murad discusses the Umayyads leading up to the Abbasid revolution and the fragmentation of the central states. He covers the Abbasid rule – which is for many historians the Golden Age of Islamic civilization – with the capital being moved from Damascus to Baghdad.

In part six, Eventually, the Abbasid caliph becomes a secondary figure, almost a symbol. Real power is increasingly in the hands of the body guards, the Imperial Guard and hence the figure of the vizier morphs into the figure of the Sultan.

This process begins with the family of the viziers in the second and third centuries of their rule. More significantly, the emergence of the Seljuk’s (Turkish-speaking soldiers, military-types, administrators) begin effectively as rulers when they establish themselves as the real power in the land.

Murad leads up to the spread of Islam to the south and the north and the East, whereby the principle agent of Islamization seems to have been the tariqas.

In part seven, Abdal Hakim Murad examines the unanimity across the classical Islamic world despite the absence of an overriding body that could have forced conformity and delves into the question of the fate of local cultures.

He argues that Islam’s capacity to maintain this balance between the universal and the particular is important and that this is a universal feature of Islamic history. Islam does not 'Arabize' despite the use of the Arabic language in worship and but instead 'monotheizes' local cultures.
