In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers the hadiths seven to eleven of the ninth set of hadiths of Imam Nabahani on the virtues of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). In the seventh hadith we learn about Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings be upon him) various names and what they mean. The eighth hadith narrates to us  that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) has been raised through his mention whenever Allah is mentioned. The ninth hadith tells us about some meanings regarding the spiritual weight of Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings be upon him). The tenth hadith highlights the gravity of believing in Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and its consequences. Finally, Shaykh Faraz continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where he tells us that the essence of knowledge is to know what is the obedience and worship of Allah and what they entail.
