"O you who believe, the fasts have been enjoined upon you as they were enjoined upon those before you, so that you may attain a mindfulness of God" (2:183)Fasting — or any other regularly enjoyed, good gift from God — for the sake of some spiritual purpose is markedly counter-cultural in our consumerist society. We fast in this life because we believe in the life to come. We don’t have to get it all here and now, because we have a promise that we will have it all in the coming age. We fast from what we can see and taste, because we have tasted and seen the goodness of the invisible and infinite Lord — and are desperately hungry for more of Him (May He Be Exalted). Listen with your heart as Shaykh Mokhtar Magharoui distills ancient wisdom to re-ignite your Ramadan and your spiritual life.
Hasan, Husain & the Merits of Ahl-ul-Bayt - Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui
Even though the Qur’an itself honors them, in an age of sectarianism, Muslims who seek to mention the Prophetic Household are accused of either deviancy or discord. As the gap between polarizing opposites widens, restoring the rightful place of Ahl-ul-Bayt in our discourse is the first step to help mediate these divisions. Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui contemplates on the spiritual path they took, and how it helps guide us to the most beautiful path of conduct.
