Speaker: Sh. Jamaal Diwan

The 40th Hadith of Imam Nawawi is a simple but profound piece of advice the Prophet (s) gave to Ibn Umar. “Be in this world as a stranger or traveler,” he (s) told him. In this episode, Sh. Jamaal Diwan explains that to live a free and principled life means forgoing attachment to worldly things and shedding any sense of entitlement.
