080 – Busying Oneself With Benefit | Having Good Opinion of Others


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani continues the section on Helpfulness and Good Advice from Imam Zarnuji’s “Instruction of the Student”, where we learn about busying oneself with that which benefits them. This entails leaving that which does not concern oneself. We also learn about bearing with fools, and being wary of thinking ill of other believers.

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.
