In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths fifteen to twenty from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of “la ilaha illallah”. In hadith fifteen, we learn about that one who says “la ilaha illallah” with sincerity will enter Paradise, and what it means to be sincere. In hadith sixteen, we learn about the command of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to call out to people that whoever says “la illaha illallah”, Paradise becomes incumbent upon them. In hadith seventeen, we learn that “la illaha illallah” is the best of dhikr. In hadith eighteen, we learn about a man who is saved from the edge of the fire by the merit of “la ilaha illalllah”. In hadith nineteen, we learn of a discussion amongst the companions the statement of “la ilaha illallah” making Paradise imcumbent upon one. In hadith twenty, we learn of a story of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) and the companions saying “la ilaha illallah” together. Shaykh Faraz then continues the text, Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, in which we learn about the importance of acting on one’s knowledge.
