Location: Omid Center

Speaker: Mr. Hashemi

عنوان: زهد
Topic: Asceticism

انسان ها برای آنکه بتوانند به سعادت اخروی دست یابند لازم است رابطه ای درست با دنیا داشته باشند چرا که زندگی دنیوی آنها مقدمه سعادت جاودانه ایشان است. از این رو آیات قرآن کریم و روایات ائمه اطهار علیهم السلام به طور گسترده به موضوع نحوه ارتباط انسان با دنیا توجه کرده و آن را تبیین نموده است. در این بحث که تحت عنوان زهد ارائه خواهد شد بدنبال آن هستیم تا با کمک منابع اسلامی به تبیین نحوه درست رابطه انسان ها با دنیا بپردازیم. علت نام گذاری این بحث با عنوان زهد آن است که به طور کلی در اسلام به انسان ها توصیه شده است که با دنیا ارتباطی زاهدانه داشته باشند. در این بحث ابتدا به جایگاه انسان و دنیا در نظام خلقت می پردازیم و سپس به تبیین نقش زهد در زندگی انسان اشاره خواهیم کرد.


We, human beings, live a short worldly life on the earth before death transfers us to the long-lasting hereafter. This short period determines our eternal happiness in the afterlife, and so, it is crucial to define a solidified relationship with different aspects of our worldly life. However, forming a proper relationship is not viable without the knowledge of the nature of the parties in the relationship, that is, Human being and this world, and due to this reason, Islamic literature did not turn a blind eye on this issue. In fact, Islamic literature discussed this issue in several verses of the Quran, as well as many Hadiths from the Ahl-ul-Bait (PHUT) where it outlined the quality of this relationship. In this lecture, we will illustrate the nature and aspects of this relationship under the topic of “asceticism” since Islam advises humans to foster an ascetical relationship with aspects of worldly life. We will first discuss the state of humans among the creatures and the state of worldly life in the universe, and then we will offer the Islamic view on the asceticism and its role in Muslims’ life.
