097 – The Weightiness of “La Ilaha Illa Allah” | Entering God’s Fortress


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadiths thirty-five to forty from Imam Nabahani’s set of hadiths on the virtues of “la ilaha illallah”. In hadith thirty-five, we learn how one may earn each day the like of Mount Uhud in gold by doing dhikr of “subhanAllah”, “la ilaha illah”, and “Allahu akbar”, each of which is greater than Uhud. In hadith thirty-six, we learn about the protection of “la ilaha illallah” in the grave. In hadith thirty-seven, we learn about the salvific potential of “la ilaha illallah” for a sinner. In hadith thirty-eight, we learn about the words given by the Prophet (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) to a companion, containing the statement “la ilaha illallah”, that would be easier on him and weightier on the scales than what he was already doing of dhikr. In hadith thirty-nine, we learn that Allah Most High says “la ilaha illallah” is His fortress, and whoever enters His fortress is safe from His punishment. In hadith forty, we learn that whoever’s last words are “la ilaha illallah” will not enter the hellfire.

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.
