In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers the hadiths thirty four to forty, concluding the ninth set of hadiths of Imam Nabahani on the virtues of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). In the thirty fourth hadith we learn about al-Kawthar, the river Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is granted in paradise. The thirty fifth informs us about the virtue of the followers of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) on the Day of Judgement and how they will be illuminated due to their performance of ablution in this world. In the thirty sixth hadith we are told about how Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) will be the first to traverse the bridge over the Hellfire. The thirty seventh hadith tells us about the intercession of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Hadith thirty eight informs us about how Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) will be the first to open the doors of heaven. The thirty ninth hadith tells us about the events of Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings be upon him) night journey.

Finally, Shaykh Faraz reads and explains the fortieth hadith, which is a lengthy hadith on Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings be upon him) great intercession in the hereafter. The hadith highlights the great rank of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), the events of the hereafter of people seeking the different prophets’ intercessions, and the care and concern of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) for his people.
