In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadith three to six from Imam Nabahani’s eighth set of hadiths on the virtues of loving for the sake of Allah and hating for the sake of Allah. In the third hadith, we learn that its is from faith to love someone solely for the sake of Allah. In the fourth hadith, we learn about loving Allah through loving and connecting with the Qur’an. In the fifth hadith, we learn about how one will be with those whom he loves in this life and the next. In the sixth hadith, we learn about how the intensity of love unites people with those that he loves. We also learn about how the companions of the Prophet (may Allah be pleased with them) loved the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Shaykh Faraz Rabbani also continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where we learn about preferring and choosing Allah in one’s life, love and action.
