At the 2000 Summer Rihla Program in southern Spain, Hamza Yusuf introduced the text: The Poor Man's Book of Assistance, by the ninth century Moroccan scholar, Sidi Ahmed Zarruq, to an eager group of students at the Al-Azzargra Madrassa. The extemporary commentary given by Shaykh Hamza is full of insights and wisdoms that will no doubt leave a mark on the listener's heart -- the mark of desiring spiritual growth and purification. One student explained that Sidi Ahmed Zarruq "advises you step by step on how to purify the sick heart just as a doctor would advise her ill patient. He provides you with a specific plan to follow on your jouney in attempting to attain your only station for salvation -- that of a sound heart. " She also said, "Shaykh Hamza's dynamic teaching style really brings this book to life, extrapolating practical applications for the student of the here and now."
