This should be a very interesting seminar exploring Tassawuf from both Sufi and Salafi sources. Didn't you always want to know which one was right? :p The Tasawwuf of the Salaf
Principles of Tazkiyah an-Nafs (Purification of the Self)
Seminar by Sh. Mokhtar Maghraoui
Sat. March 20th 10 am to 5 pm
(There will be breaks for salah and lunch)
RPI Sage 3303
The Creator has bestowed upon us means to know Him and to draw nearer to Him. The largest obstacle between us and the Creator is ourselves. Our infatuation with the life of this World marginalizes our relationship with Allah. In order to seek Allah's Nearness, we must purify our "selves" by opposing the drives of the nafs (ego). Tasawwuf and the Way of the Salaf offer, as some perceive, different methodologies for achieving Allah's Nearness. However, our imperfections may prevent us from seeing the two Ways as complimentary.*This seminar will not be broadcast live on the internet due to its sensitive nature.
