Seclusion & Love
Looking at two important modes of being: khalwa & mahabba
In Seclusion & Love, Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad guides us through the ways in which aspects of seclusion – solitude, transformation and joyful upliftment – affected the ‘Three Waves of Love’ in both Western and Islamic histories, and how we can incorporate these lessons into our own journey of seeking closeness to the Divine.
These sessions were broadcast on YouTube weekly in Ramadan 2020.
Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad (Dr Timothy Winter) was educated at Cambridge, Al-Azhar and London universities. He is currently the Shaykh Zayed Lecturer of Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Divinity at Cambridge University and Director of Studies in Theology at Wolfson College.
