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 seeking Allah’s guidance and then being upset with His decree. Being content for whatever Allah has destined for one is obligatory. The cure for not objecting to Allah’s destiny is to know one is only seeing the outward of actions. Where as Allah Most High sees the inward and the reality of actions. Allah’s choosing is better than what one may choose for one’s self. Whatever Allah chooses for one will have eternal consequences through gratitude or patience, or through praising Allah or repenting to Allah.
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.
