036 – Failing to Ask | Realities on the Day of Judgement | Pleasing People vs. Allah | Opening of Supplication | Allah’s Light of Guidance


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths thirty three to forty from Imam Nabahani’s second set of hadiths on the Praise Of Allah. Hadith thirty-three informs us that Allah Most High is displeased with those who do not ask of Him, and we learn that there are four ways of failing to ask. Hadith thirty-four explains how the people of Paradise and the people of the Hellfire will not be able to enter therein until they have earned their rights from one another by way of their deeds. Hadith thirty-five tells us about the first words that will be exchanged between Allah Most High and the believers on the Day of Judgement. Hadith thirty-six tells us who will judge between people on the Day of Judgement. In hadith thirty-seven, we learn that the strongest of people are those who trust in Allah Most High, and hadith thirty-eight warns against angering Allah Most High in order to please people. Hadith thirty-nine highlights the Prophet’s praise of how Ibn Mas’ud supplicated. Finally, in hadith forty, we learn that when Allah Most High created creation, he cast upon them from His light by which they were guided; whomever His light fell upon was not guided.

In the Daily Rawha, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will be covering Daily Guidance for Seekers, beginning with two texts:

(1) Imam Zarnuji’s Guidance for Seekers of Knowledge Regarding the Ways of Seeking Knowledge (Ta`lim al-Muta`allim Turuq al-Ta`allum); and

(2) Imam Yusuf al-Nabahani’s beautiful collection of 40 sets of 40 Hadiths of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).

The texts will be read in Arabic, translated, and commented upon briefly. This class is of benefit both for committed students of knowledge—particularly given the reading in Arabic—and for those simply seeking daily guidance, reminders, and inspiration in learning to live the light of Prophetic guidance.
