116 – Loving Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and Faith | What Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was Granted | Experiential Spirituality


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers the hadiths fourteen to seventeen of the ninth set of hadiths of Imam Nabahani on the virtues of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). In the fourteenth hadith we learn that a person’s qualities are not truly complete without loving Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) more than anyone else. In the fifteenth to the seventeenth hadiths, we learn about the special qualities and grants that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was given that no other prophet and no one else was given, highlighting his distinct rank and unique nature. Finally, Shaykh Faraz continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where he tells us about the guidelines and appropriate ways to approach experiential spirituality.

(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.
