Faraz Rabbani Lectures

Whom Should I Take My Islamic Knowledge From?

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani answers the question: who do we take knowledge from? He details the advice of al-Khatib al-Baghdadi, from his work al-Faqih wa’l Mutafaqqih, which revolves around three main points: (1) consulting the scholars experts in the discipline, (2) following those who act on what Islam entails, and (3) following those who learned with scholars and not through only reading books.

Rush To The Remembrance Of Allah

In this khutba, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani discusses how Allah (Most High) has commanded us to rush to the Friday prayer with a certain purpose, that purpose is the remembrance of Allah. The rush in here is the rushing of concern, not the physical rush.

He further goes into detail about what is meant by the ‘remembrance of Allah’; it entails two senses:
[1] The remembrance of Allah itself because the prayer IS an act of remembrance of Allah.
[2] That which reminds of you Allah, i.e. the khutba, that which reminds you of how to rectify your relationship with Allah (Most High).
The key to rectifying one’s relationship is the quality of taqwa, of having mindfulness of Allah.

What is the Straight Path of Islam? “Guide us to the Straight Path” Explained

What is the Straight Path we ask for in Surat al-Fatiha when we say: “Guide us to the Straight Path.” [Qur’an, 1.6] Why do believers–people of guidance–ask Allah for guidance?

In this insightful khutba, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani of SeekersHub Toronto (http://www.SeekersHub.org/) explains what guidance is; that the straight path is the direct way to the desired goal; what the believer seeks in life–Allah’s closeness and pleasure, and eternal success; the relationship between the straight path and the good of this life and the next… and more.

Shaykh Faraz emphasizes that this seeking of the straight path relates to seeking Allah–and making the right choice–in every life circumstance.

This Friday sermon was delivered at the Brampton Islamic Centre.

He mentions narrations from leading companions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace)–including Ali, al-Bara’, Ibn Abbas, A’isha, among others (Allah be pleased with them)–that give us beautiful glimpses of the stunning appearance (khalq) and beautiful character of the Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings be upon him & his folk).
