The approach to the Islamic Tradition in general and to Sufism in specific that is adopted by Western Muslims drives many to partake in practices and in some cases life-altering life decisions that make one fall victim to a classic deception of Iblees packaged as a spiritual calling. The previous episode garnered a polarized reaction that called for further commentary on the topic.
Topics addressed in this episode include the need to study Arabic, what a tariqa and following a shaykh entail and how it can become problematic, as well as the nature of Hadras and why I'm against it.
