119 – The Beloved of Allah ﷺ | Encompassing Life Lessons


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers the hadiths twenty six and twenty seven of the ninth set of hadiths of Imam Nabahani on the virtues of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). In these two hadiths we learn about Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) being the beloved of Allah, which is a special station that distinguishes him from the other prophets and the rest of creation. Shaykh Faraz also continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where he narrates a story of Imam Hatem al-Asam with his teacher Shaqiq al-Balkhi. Imam Hatem shares eight life lessons he learnt from his teacher after keeping his company for thirty years.

(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.
