In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers the hadiths eighteen to twenty of the ninth set of hadiths of Imam Nabahani on the virtues of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). In the eighteenth and nineteenth hadith we learn that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) excellent of chareacter and was sent to perfect virtuous character. In the twentieth hadith we learn that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) mercy gifted by God. Finally, Shaykh Faraz continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where he gives four duties incumbent on the spiritual aspirant in order to draw close to Allah.

(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.
