In the twenty first hadith we learn about Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) deep and sincere concern for his people (ummah) and how he wept in seeking forgiveness for them. The twentieth hadith highlights the great merit and reward in sending blessings upon Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). In the twenty third hadith, we learn something of the great rank and majesty of Prophet Muhmmad (peace ad blessings be upon him), through his story with the buraq on the event of the night journey. The twenty fourth and twenty fifth hadith showcase the high rank in the hereafter of those who are connected to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Finally, Shaykh Faraz continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where he narrates a story of Imam Shibly, one of the great spiritual masters of the Muslim predecessors. He highlights a comprehensive hadith, which gathers the knowledge of how one should act in this life.
