186- The Rawha- Guidance for Seekers- Keeping the Hereafter in Mind – Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Covering Muhasibi’s “Treatise for Seekers of Guidance” (Risalat al-Mustarshidin), Shaykh Faraz Rabbani begins by looking at a reminder to act keeping in mind that one will be recompensed for one’s good and evil. He reminds us that this doesn’t relate solely to the obligatory alone, but also to seeking good for others.

Shaykh Faraz moves on to explain counsels on being thankful, decreasing one’s worldly wishes (as opposed to next worldly ones), visiting graves to remember death, and imagining the Resurrection mentioned throughout the Quran. He closes with a warning against evil and wrongdoing—particularly through usury (riba)—and a reminder of the blessing in truly enriching activities.
