This blog is run by some of the students of Shaykh Abu Yusuf Riyadh ul Haq (may Allah protect him) and aims to regularly post short excerpts and words of wisdom related to tazkiyyah (purification of the soul) and spirituality which have been collated from the gatherings of the Shaykh. The Shaykh is world-renowned and recognised for his extensive and in-depth knowledge of the Qur’an, hadeeth and fiqh and is highly regarded for being the first scholar to teach Saheeh al-Bukhari in a systemic and comprehensive manner to the lay public in English. However, there is another dimension to the Shaykh’s teachings which are not always recognised; those related to tazkiyyah. As students of the Shaykh, we have all benefitted immensely from the Shaykh’s teachings related to tarbiyyah and tazkiyyah and our intention with this blog is to share some of those spiritual teachings with you.
