Description from the publisher:

The Virtues of Seclusion in Times of Confusion is a timely work about unplugging; physically and virtually; as a viable and sorely needed third option between absolute isolation from society and unrestricted social interaction. In this work that speaks to us and our time; Shaykh ‘Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulusi brilliantly weaves together the Quranic verses; hadith reports; and counsels of the Salaf concerning self-imposed seclusion and its importance as a protective measure to safeguard our faith and shore up our spiritual defenses in times of strife and confusion (fitna). This seclusion; he tells us; is not about withdrawing completely from society and heading for the hills; but rather sitting things out; keeping busy with personal and familial concerns; minding our business—staying at home. It is a call for taking careful stock of where we are spiritually and assessing where exactly our sphere of influence is and not overextending ourselves to our own detriment and the detriment of our loved ones.

“The goal of this book and its fine-tuned translation is to put an exclamation point on the importance of seclusion; and to construct a nuanced and scholarly understanding of the matter. Readers will enjoy; learn; and take examples from the stories of how our predecessors withdrew from societies when they felt their corruption. I pray that this work marks the beginning of our regular practice of retreat—physically and digitally—in a way that makes us more at peace and thus more effective in bringing positive change to ourselves; our families; and our communities.” —Dr. Shadee Elmasry
