All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all creation—and may He extol the Messenger in the highest company of Angels, and grant him peace and security—likewise to his family, Companions and true followers.

Some points discussed during this Khutbah:
⁃ The balance of the Salaf in their zuhd (abstention from the dunyā).
⁃ Shaykh ‘Uthaymīn (رحمه الله) on the error of those who refrain from the ṭayyibāt (good things) without a legislated reason.
⁃ Statements from the Salaf regarding the correct manner of practicing zuhd.
⁃ The reason why the Salaf would refrain from partaking in some [permissible] affairs of the dunyā.
⁃ The zuhd of the Salaf vs the “zuhd” of the Ṣūfiyyah.
⁃ The balance of the Salaf in preserving their honour, nobility and character.
⁃ The understanding of the Salaf in judging people based on what is apparent vs our era of hypersensitivity and perversions of established norms.
⁃ Advice from Imām ash-Shāfi’ī and Imām Aḥmad (رحمهم الله) on how to interact with the people, and an example from Shaykh Rabī’ (حفظه الله) in this regard.
⁃ Tremendous words from Ibn al-Qayyim (رحمه الله) that strike the difference between the noble and wretched individual regarding what they exercise patience upon.
