The Different Forms of Asceticism

November 28, 2014 § 1 Comment

From Ibraaheem ibn Adham who said:

“The obligatory form of az-zuhd is that he abstains from the haraam; and the safe form of az-zuhd (that which protects a person’s honour and integrity) is that he abstains from the doubtful matters; and the superior form of az-zuhd is that he abstains from that which is halaal (i.e. in surplus – that a person does not indulge in what is halaal and be wasteful).”

— [Imaam Abu ‘Abdullah Shamsud-Deen adh-Dhahabee’s Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa’ (7/390)
