Edited some things
What I had said about ibn idris' view of dhikr gatherings was very misleading so i just edited that to make it more accurate. i'm talking about the Muhammadan Sufism and Mutaba'a post.
riyada in arabic means "training" or "discipline". It was used by the arabs in relation to horse taming. Sufis refer to their discipline as "riyadat an-nafs": disciplining the soul / training the ego. Today, the word riyada has come to mean "sports". There is an Arabic proverb that says: "The purpose of sports (riyada) is not to win cups, but to discipline the soul". This blog is here to help me discipline my soul and train my body.
