Branches of Faith - 08: Nurturing the Tree of Faith & Institution Building

Shaykh Yahya Rhodus shares his viewpoint that in this phase of North American Islam, the most important priority is institution building and conveying the Prophetic inheritance.

He reflects on the idea of the Tree of Faith as a metaphor from institution building.

Beginning with the seed of faith, he draws links between nurturing the soil of the heart and modern destructive overfarming practices which produce dead soil.

Shaykh Yahya talks about nurturing our hearts, and how, just as trees donít bear fruit overnight, nor do institutions: the results of one's service might not appear for generations.

He closes giving a few more insights related to the metaphorical Tree of Faith and shared meanings with the natural tree. ---

This is part of the series presented in Ramadan 2018: "Branches of Faith: The Virtues and Fruits of Faith".

It is narrated that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Faith is seventy some branches".

In this series some of the leading scholars will cover and explain the different branches of faith, as they have come in the works of the Islamic tradition.

The branches of faith include (1) branches of belief and certitude, (2) branches of spiritual works, and (3) branches of social excellence.
