In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani begins the eighth set of hadiths on the virtues of loving for the sake of Allah and hating for the sake of Allah from Imam Nabahani’s forty sets of forty hadiths, covering the first two hadiths. In the introduction to this set, we learn how love and hate for the sake of Allah are from the qualities of faith. We also learn what love means and some of its definitions. In the first hadith, we learn about three qualities through which the sweetness of faith is experienced. In the second hadith, we learn about the seven types of people whom Allah will grant shade for in the hereafter. Shaykh Faraz Rabbani also continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where we learn about sincerity in seeking knowledge.
