Shaykh Faraz continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali. He explains that the caller to Allah provides beneficial reminder by avoiding mere preaching. Rather, they have care and concern for the hereafter. They avoid inclining toward worldliness and showing off, which lead to heedlessness. He goes on to remind us to avoid the traps of mere preaching. This is done by having a clear purpose of who one is calling to, and why one is calling. Imam Ghazali reminds the preacher not to mix with the rulers unless there is a clear benefit or need.
In the Rawha, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will be covering Daily Guidance for Seekers. The text covered in this episode is Imam Ghazali’s “Letter to a Disciple” on his comprehensive advice to the seeker of knowledge.
The texts in the Rawha 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.
