074 – The Best of Allah’s Bounty | The Best of Actions | Overcoming Hardships in Seeking Knowledge


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths eighteen to twenty from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of the remembrance of Allah Most High. In hadith eighteen, we learn about the praiseworthiness of dying with one’s tongue moist in remembrance. In hadith nineteen, we learn that best bounty that Allah Most High bestows upon His servants is inspiring them to remember Him. In hadith twenty we learn that the best of actions is the remebrance of Allah Most High. Shaykh Faraz then continues the section on Reliance on Allah Most High from Imam Zarnuji’s “Instruction of the Student”, where we learn about the necessity of bearing hardships and difficulties in the journey of learning.

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.
