049 – Affirming Sound Doctrine | Actions Safeguard Faith | Islam, Migration, and Faith


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths three and four from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of faith and submission. In hadith three, we learn about the importance of affirming sound doctrine related to previously incompatible beliefs in addition to the testimony of faith. Here, Shaykh Faraz emphasizes that the key to salvation is faith, and that the role of actions is to safeguard and nurture faith. Thus, the greatest danger in sins is that they threaten faith itself. In hadith four, we learn that Islam, migration, and Hajj completely wipe away what came before them.

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.
