Sheikh Faraz Rabbani

Lesson one Hadith Gibril

This hadith is the foundation of Prophetic guidance

Hadith is in Muslim (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him), related by Umar (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him)

This hadith gives us our key understandings

Our deen is encompassing and specific to one area i.e fiqh

This gives us an indication to spiritual excellence; there is a point of perfection

Faith is to have conviction

Every level has realities

There is Insight in the hadith that gives us ways to seeking knowledge

There are many layers of beautiful meanings

Qadi Iyad said; "This hadith has explained all the inward and outward duties, of servitude and worship to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala. Established for us what the foundations of faith are, key outwards works, the means inward sincerity and how one preserves ones work for corruption. In reality all the branches of sacred law return to this hadith and branch out from it."

The importance of knowledge and the means of attaining it

The hadith has been referred to as Umma sunna

This also shows us a way to be a true believer

The state of spiritual excellence is a constant state of worship

"The world is what busies you with other than Allah" (subhanu wa ta'ala) Ibn Ata'llah Alsaknderi (May Allah's Ta'ala mercy be with him)

This has the word of the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) and the events that took place, which is something we don't always get.

One of the conditions of knowledge is that one understands what he is learning

You may have knowledge but you may not understanding

Knowledge can be taken from books but not understanding

The companions (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) lived the Prophetic guidance

Umar(May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with him) clearly determined between falsehood and truth

The companions (May Allah Ta’ala be pleased with them.) should not be vilified

The hadith talks about the strangeness and suddenness of this event

Going to the hadith;who was this stranger and where did he come from, not a traveller or a resident, handsome and had good perfume, he had the manners of a desert Arab

The best of times to seek knowledge is in your youth

Good care and attention for good appearance for Allah (Subhanu wa Ta’ala) is a Sunna

Each and everyone of us is ambassador for our deen

The best of dress is piety

Islamic clothes should be modest and this depends of the custom of the people, (The good custom)

We are very lazy in our attitude to knowledge

There is a proper manner to learning knowledge

If you take care in learning and take it seriously then you'll get benefit

Scholars look at forms and meanings

Sheikh Adeeb Khalas said, " A student of knowledge has to break his knees." He took notes even though he had been teaching it for 50 years, whilst sitting in on a lesson given by Sheikh Abdul razzaq Al halabi.

He Gibril (upon him peace) said "Ya Muhammad." (peace and blessing upon him) which was strange as well, in some accounts we have Gibril (upon him peace) give salam and then asked to approach.
