Futuwwa – The Way of Spiritual Chivalry
THE WAY OF SPIRITUAL CHIVALRY – Shaykh Talal Al-Azim
Futuwwa is to prefer others over one’s self. Futuwwa is for one to always work for the sake of others; it is also said that it is that one never sees one’s self as holding any favor over another, nor possessing any rights upon another.
Ja’far al-Sadiq was once asked, “What is Futuwwa?” He replied: “Futuwwah is not possible with quarreling and backbiting. Futuwwah is feeding people, giving to them, being pleasant and honorable to them, and not causing them diffculties.”
Going through the Futuwwa text book An Abridgement of THE WAY OF SPIRITUAL CHIVALRY by Abu ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn al-Husayn al-Sulami.
