Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad: The Sunnah is Not Found in Self-Righteousness

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad said, “Beware of others or beware of yourself when the energy that moves you in life is actually the ego’s energy, but has found a religious form of expression – that is the most dangerous thing of all.  Self-righteousness that can lead to you eventually blowing yourself up in public – that is the kind of ultimate triumph of the ego: Using the forms of piety in order to magnify the turbulences within.

The sunnah is not to be used as a megaphone for our own internal traumas.  The sunnah is a way of moving away from our own rubbish and to mould ourselves outwardly in the form of somebody who is serene - who despite all of the threats, is always smiling, never had any difficulty sleeping, never had ego issues, always at ease.”
