3 Types of Zuhd


Al-Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal said: Az-Zuhd is of three types:

The first: Abandoning that which is haraam [forbidden]-– and it is the zuhd of the general folk.

The second: Abandoning the excesses of that which is halaal [lawful ] – and it is the zuhd of the people of distinction.

The third: Abandoning that which busies one from Allaah – and it is the zuhd of the acquainted ones.

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
