This class explores the intersection between Islamic spirituality (tazkiyah), Islamic law and jurisprudence, wealth, and social impact. Our study begins with an overview of tazkiyah in its principles and practices as well as of the Islamic ethical-legal framework. We will focus on the individual and collective applications of long-established notions of faqr (poverty), wara` (reverent scrupulousness), sabr (patience), shukr (gratitude), zuhd (renunciation), and rida (contentment). We will carefully consider the role of these concepts – among others – in transforming individuals, by moving from attachments of the hearts to wealth to mere interactions, and designing business with impact.
