In this episode, Shaykh Faraz introduces Imam Yusuf al Nabahani and his text containing 40 sets of 40 hadiths. He discusses the sources of the hadiths, and some of the things authors are recommended to do when writing, such as beginning in the name of Allah.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ encouraged us to strive for uprightness by seeking assistance in the early mornings, late afternoons (al-rawha), and something of the depths of the night. From this tradition, the scholars, early and recent, made it a habit to read texts of religious guidance, briefly, in the late afternoon (rawha) time, and often termed such readings their daily “rawha.” The term refers to the late afternoon, but also to a time of rest from worldly toils, and reinvigoration of one’s spirit.

In the Daily Rawha, held daily at 6 pm at SeekersHub Toronto for 20 minutes or so, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will be covering Daily Guidance for Seekers, beginning with two texts:

(1) Imam Zarnuji’s Guidance for Seekers of Knowledge Regarding the Ways of Seeking Knowledge (Ta`lim al-Muta`allim Turuq al-Ta`allum); and

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

We will be beginning with the first set, 40 Sacred Hadith (hadith qudsi).

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.
