095 – Forgiveness Through the Testimony of Faith | Benefitting from Knowledge Through Action


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths twenty-six to twenty-nine from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of “la ilaha illallah”. In hadith twenty-six, we learn about “la ilaha illallah” as a statement of taqwa. In hadith twenty-seven, we learn about the covenant one has by “la ilaha illallah”. In hadith twenty-eight about oppression as a barrier between one and the light of “la ilaha illallah”. In hadith twenty-nine, we learn about the effect of “la ilaha illallah” on small slips and mistakes. Shaykh Faraz then continues the text, Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where we learn about that even if one studied for a hundred years and collected a thousand books, they would not benefit one except through action. Likewise, one will not be healed by medicine without taking it.

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.
