148 – Loving to Delve into Worldly Matters and Delving into Talking About People

In this podcast Shaykh Faraz Rabbani continues the text, “Blameworthy Traits and Their Cure” (‘Uyub al-Nafs wa Mudawatuha) by Imam Abu Abdulrahman al-Sulami (died 412 A.H.). This work deals with states of the self, and how to rid oneself from blameworthy traits. In this episode Shaykh Faraz covers the blameworthy trait of loving to delve into world matters and delving into talking about people. This world doesn’t last, and it is the hereafter that truly lasts. One should busy oneself with constant remembrance of Allah. There is a danger in looking good in front of others instead of doing good. Showing off is very dangerous. Its cure is to know that creation can not benefit or harm ultimately. Without sincerity actions are dead. The reality of religion is sincerity.

In the Rawha, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will be covering Daily Guidance for Seekers. The text covered in this episode is Imam Abu Abdulrahman al-Sulami’s “ Blameworthy Traits and Their Cure”(‘Uyub al-Nafs wa Mudawatuha).

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.
