Ghazali's Beginning of Guidance (Bidayat al-Hidaya)

By Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf (1/3)

Imam al-Ghazali’s Bidayah al-Hidayah is a highly motivational manual detailing the fundamentals of acquiring guidance through God-consciousness (taqwa).

Imam al-Ghazali argues that just as there is an end to this noble objective there is also a beginning to it, which must be made firm for one to achieve success. He then goes on to expound the fundamentals of this “beginning.”

While being concise and to-the-point the manual is laid out in the form of a detailed daily timetable providing the reader strong inspiration and much heart-rending counsel.

The three sections of this book are on obedience, refraining from disobedience, and the etiquette of companionship with the Creator and with creation.

One of Imam al-Ghazali’s final works, it embodies a lifetime of learning, experience, and spirituality and can be taken as an introduction to his larger works.

To BE DRESSED in the ATTRIBUTES of ALLAH

It has been said that the spiritual path of Islam known as tasawwuf, or Sufism in English, has been described as progressively becoming "dressed in the Attributes of God."

What this means is that only by increasingly cultivating our capacity for love, mercy, compassion, forgiveness, patience, forbearance, humility, light and beauty can we draw nearer unto the Divine Presence of the Eternal.

The superficial observance of forms and rituals is not enough to truly awaken and reach to Truth, but to truly benefit from the spiritual practices enjoined upon humanity, one must make sincere effort to purify the heart of all negativity and darkness.

If we fail to cultivate the spiritual excellence we are called to, we risk losing both in this life and the next. Yet by developing the character of a believer by sincerely and truly following the Prophetic Path, we can attain to the grace and divine pleasure of God, and be granted true success in this world and the hereafter...

Are You Worthy?

While we may not realize it, one of the greatest subconscious blocks we have that prevent us from experiencing joy, happiness, love, health and success in life is deep rooted fear and belief that we are inherently unworthy and undeserving.

Sadly, this mistake belief based in the idea of conditional love, is in fact counter to a true and healthy belief in the greatness and glory of God, who created human beings inherently worthy of love, abundance and prosperity.

In fact, it is the goal of Iblis (Satan) to misguide us into believing we are unworthy of God's love and support, and to thus inadvertently lead us into agreement with him and rebellion towards divine order.

It is extremely important to heal and correct this mistaken belief to not only experience joy, peace, happiness and love, but also to thus move towards the Divine Presence of God.

We must remember that we are inherently worthy not for any reason other than the fact that we have a loving, benevolent and divine God who created us out of love, mercy and compassion. We are worthy because He is Great. Allahu Haq. Allahu Akbar.

Islam is Positivity

Although it has become common to equate religion with the mere identification with a cultural bloc, Islam was during the time of the Prophet ﷺ first and foremost defined by spiritual excellence, which can be described as personal and cultural excellence as manifest in one's character.

Prior to the establishing of rules and regulations, the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ spent nearly a decade simply in purifying the hearts and souls of his companions, and leading them to the truth and reality of Islam, namely, human beings of moral and spiritual excellence based in selflessness, light, love, compassion and goodness.

To be a Muslim by definition asks and requires of us to be, first and foremost, people of excellence, beauty and light.

These internal qualities of grace are the very manifestation of Islam, and without inner humility and piety, external forms can only lead to hypocrisy.

When Was The Last Time?

When was the last time you reconnected with the natural environment?

While we may not realize the inherent detriment of being exclusively confined to man-made environments, it is significant, and not spending time in nature takes a devastating toll on our health and wellness.

We are created from and are a part of the earth, and being disconnected from mother earth leads to an imbalanced constitution and an imbalanced life.

In this brief video, brother Ihsan shares a reminder to make the conscious effort to spend time in God's beautiful creation and maintain your connection with the earth, which will lead to a more grounded and balanced life in addition to alleviating the stress, anxiety, fear and worry that arises from the man-made world which leads to separation and disconnection.
