The Mahabbah Foundation of Cape Town, South Africa, has organized a tour featuring Habib Umar bin Hafiz and a number of other scholars.

You can find the full program with times and dates on their Facebook page here.

As part of the tour, Habib Umar asked Shaykh Faraz Rabbani to address the scholars who were present in Johannesburg.

The subject of the address was the definition of a righteous scholar (or, a true Sufi) as, “A person of knowledge who acted upon their knowledge, so Allah granted them knowledge of what they didn’t know.”

Shaykh Faraz Touched upon the three aspects of this definition of what constitutes a true scholar, with some practical counsel. The three aspects being

  1. knowledge

  2. action

  3. state with Allah.
