066 – Seeking Benefit from Everyone, Anytime in any Circumstance


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani continues the section on the Beginning of Study, Its Amount, and Its Organization from Imam Zarnuji’s “Instruction of the Student”, where we learn about how to gain benefit from anyone, balancing seeking knowledge with earning a livelihood, and the importance of gratitude and the basis of neediness in seeking.

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.
