101 – Loving The Prophet ﷺ and Loving Good for Others from the Qualities of Faith | Worship by Acting on Knowledge


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadith seven and eight 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 seventh hadith, we learn about how loving for others what one loves for themselves is from the qualities of faith. In the eighth hadith, we learn about how loving the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) more than ourselves is also from the qualities of faith. Shaykh Faraz Rabbani also continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where we learn about having sincere intentions in seeking Allah’s pleasure through seeking knowledge. Acting on knowledge is worship and an indicator of not seeking worldly gains through knowledge.

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.
