081 – Useful Means for the Attainment of Knowledge


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani completes the section on Helpfulness and Good Advice from Imam Zarnuji’s “Instruction of the Student”. He then begins the section on Seeking Benefit. In this section we learn about the importance of taking notes, building routines, benefitting from the learned, and concentrating on knowledge wholeheartedly.

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.
