About The Book
Asceticism has a pivotal place in the way of “tasawwuf”. It means lack of desire, staying away from anything vogue and being content with less. A heart with zuhd gives less importance to worldly needs and advantages, refrains from being opportunist and selfish, carries as little as concerns for self-benefits and becomes fully satisfied with whatever is present is any given circumstances.
Ascetic is the person who has the virtue of Zuhd. Zuhd (Asceticism) doesn’t mean pursuing a clerical life and shutting oneself in a remote monastery and cease working, it means trying to refrain from unnecessary worldly savors and not be over-busy with mundane activities. In other words it means submission to Afterlife, not this world.
The author has compiled this book which arranges the relevant narrations for the Companions and early Sufis by subject-heading (al-Zuhd al-Kabir).
