075 – The Polishing of Hearts | Occupying One’s Time With Knowledge


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths twenty-one and twenty-two from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of the remembrance of Allah Most High. In hadith twenty-one, we learn about remembrance of Allah Most High as the polishing of the hearts. In hadith twenty-two, we learn about the superiority of remembrance of Allah Most High over other acts of worship. 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 importance of not busying oneself with something other than knowledge, and not turning away from the study of fiqh.

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.
