The Clear Distinction Between Sufism And The Zuhd Of The Salaf – Shaykh Ahmad Ibn Ahmad Shamlaan [hafidhahullaah]

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ

&do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while u know [it] 2:42

All praise is for Allaah, Lord of all the Worlds, who ordered us to follow His Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and to call to His Way, and may Allaah send praises and blessings of peace upon our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and upon his family, his Companions, and those who truly follow them until the Day of Judgment.

The Clear Distinction Between Sufism And The Zuhd Of The Salaf

[Audio|Arabic-English]

By

Shaykh Ahmad Ibn Ahmad Shamlaan [hafidhahullaah]

From The Mashaayikh (Scholars) Of Yemen

The Clear Distinction Between Sufism and The Zuhd of The Salaf by Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ahmad Shamlaan

The Noble Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ahmad Shamlaan[hafidhahullaah] explained that Zuhdis to renounce worldly pleasures in order to gain nearness to Allaah. It is to leave off what Allaah has made haram and to do that which Allaah has made obligatory.

This concept is of tremendous importance in Islaam and the Shaykh presented this in the form of a comparison between the proper and upright Zuhdof the Salaf to the extreme and deviant practices of the Sufis.

The Salaf best understood and practiced this (zuhd) noble principle. They had reached the pinnacle of sincerity and devotion to Allaah and strict adherence to the Sunnah of the Messenger [sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam], performing all acts of worship in precise accordance to the legislated texts.

The Shaykh showed the clear distinction of this to the absurd innovations of the Sufis who went to such extremes in their ‘ibaadah, out of their acclaimed piety, that many of their beliefs and practices fell into kufr.

Our Shaykh Ahmad Shamlaan[hafidhahullaa] continues in this lecture making distinct the falsehood of theSufis and the proper practice of our Salaf Us Saalih in their implementation of zuhud.

Important Note By Abu Mariyah : Such a lecture is brilliant refutation on all those misguided individuals and groups who purposely try to mix Zuhd & Sufism inorder to claim that some of the Scholars from the Salaf like Imaam ibn Taymiyyah, Imaam ibn Qayyim, Imaam Dhahabi etc practiced Sufism although in reality they practiced Zuhd.

O Allaah! Show us the truth as truth so that we may follow it, and show us falsehood as falsehood, so that we may abstain from it. Ameen.

وَمَن يُشَاقِقِ الرَّسُولَ مِن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ الْهُدَىٰ وَيَتَّبِعْ غَيْرَ سَبِيلِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ نُوَلِّهِ مَا تَوَلَّىٰ وَنُصْلِهِ جَهَنَّمَ ۖ وَسَاءَتْ مَصِيرًا

And whosoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follow other than the believers way, We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in the hell – what an evil destination (4 : 115)
