In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadith eleven and twelve 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 eleventh hadith, we learn that people’s qualities of faith are not complete until they love one another, and that spreading salams (greetings of peace) is a key to that. In the twelfth hadith, we learn that those who love one another for Allah’s sake are granted shade by Allah on the day of judgement. Shaykh Faraz Rabbani also continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where he advises to prepare for the afterlife by directing one’s resolve in one’s soul, defeating their lowly selves, and being ready to die with the body.
