106 – The Most Beloved of Actions to Allah | The Company You Keep | High Aspirations for the Afterlife


In this episode, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani covers hadith nineteen to twenty-one from Imam Nabahani’s eighth set of hadiths on the virtues of loving for the sake of Allah and hating for the sake of Allah. In the nineteenth hadith, we learn that most beloved of actions to Allah Most High is to love for Allah’s sake, to hate for Allah’s sake. The twentieth hadith informs us that a person follow’s the same way as their close companions, so one should pay close attention to who they choose as close companions.  In the twenty-first hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) advises believers to no keep close companionship  except with a believers and those who are God conscious. Finally, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani continues the text, “Letter to a Disciple” by Imam Ghazali, where he highlights having high aspirations for the afterlife, and preparing for it.

In the Daily Rawha, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani will be covering Daily Guidance for Seekers, beginning with two texts:

(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.
