092 – The Rights and Weightiness of “La Ilaha Illa Allah” | Provision is Through Glorifying Allah | Striving for Virtue


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths eleven to fourteen from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of “la ilaha illallah”. In hadith eleven, we learn about the reward of different types of dhikr, and how Paradise is incumbent on the one who says “la ilaha illallah”. In hadith twelve, we learn about the importance of fulfilling the personal and social rights of “la ilaha illallah”. In hadiths thirteen and fourteen, we learn about “la ilaha illallah” outweighing the seven heavens and the seven earths on a scale. Shaykh Faraz then continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, in which we learn about the importance of leaving what does not concern one, and striving to have one’s virtue overpower one’s vice.

In the Daily Rawha, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will be covering Daily Guidance for Seekers, beginning with two texts:

(1)Imam Yusuf al-Nabahani’s beautiful collection of 40 sets of 40 Hadiths of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him); and

(2) Imam Ghazali’s “Letter to a Disciple” on his comprehensive advice to the seeker of knowledge.

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.
