TheRawha_icon

In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadith thirty-six to fourty 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 thirty-sixth and thirty-seventh hadith, we learn that the most secure knot of faith is loving for the sake of Allah and hating for the sake of Allah. The thirty-eighth hadith informs us that if two people were to love each other, one in the east and the other in the west, then Allah would unite them on the day of judgement. Hadith thirty-nine and forty tell us about the weight of loving the close servants of Allah, and that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us to supplicate for that. Thus, Shaykh Faraz concludes the eighth set of hadiths on the virtues of loving for the sake of Allah and hating for the sake of Allah. The next set, the ninth set of hadiths, is on the virtues of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

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