078 – Gardens of Paradise on Earth | Avoiding Argumentation


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths thirty-two to thirty-seven from from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of the remembrance of Allah Most High. In hadith thirty-two and thirty-three, we learn about the description of gatherings of remembrance as “gardens of paradise”. In hadith thirty-four, we learn that the benefit of the gatherings of remembrance is Paradise. In hadith thirty-five, we learn about the honour of people of gatherings of remembrance on the day of resurrection. In hadith thirty-six, we learn about the salvific consequence of remembrance. In hadith thirty-seven, we learn about the belovedness of remembrance to Allah Most High. Shaykh Faraz then continues the section on Helpfulness and Good Advice from Imam Zarnuji’s “Instruction of the Student”, where we learn about the necessity of not entering into arguments with others.

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.
