060 – A Pledge of Allegiance in Faith | The Inviolability of the Believer


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths thirty-two, thirty-three, and thirty-four from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of faith and submission. In hadith thirty-two, we learn about a particular pledge of allegiance given to the Prophet (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) to uphold faith broadly, and for certain acts specifically. In hadith thirty-three, we learn about the inviolability of one who affirms that there is no God but Allah, and disbelieves in that which is worshiped other than Allah. In hadith thirty-four, we learn that a Muslim is one whom other Muslims are safe from their tongue and their hand, and whom others trust with their lives and their wealth. Here, Shaykh Faraz explains that the word “Muslims” in the hadith, is an incidental specification and that non-Muslim rights are the same as Muslim rights, except in specific religious acts (ex. the specific method of the burial rites).

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.
