Purification & Repentance

Friday sermon by Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad - 21 January 2011 - Cambridge - 28 mins 27 secs

TRANSCRIPTION PENDING

In this sermon, Sheikh Abdal Hakim discusses some of the many sayings of the Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon him) that emphasise the importance of ritual cleanliness. If religion is ultimately about the state of our hearts, why should we attribute so much importance to outward ritual? Many Muslims, as well as non-Muslims, conclude of course that we should not. But here the sheikh explains the interconnectedness of all aspects of the human condition, and consequently the fundamental relationship between inward state and outward action.

Just a few moments after watching this I came across this video of Shaykh Khatri performing wudu:

As I watched it I felt something stir inside me as I was watching a true form of worship being undertaken in the Shaykh's wudu.
