The Spiritual Path

Our Master [May Allah SWT preserve him] says , " His concern for one is commensurate with one`s concern for Him.And this is the spiritual path - his concern for Allah SWT.Worshipping Him just because He is so Worship-able, because He deserves to be worshipped.Loving Him because He so deserves love, wanting Him because there is nothing else that deserves to be wanted.This is the spiritual path."

The Fiqh of Fasting and it`s Virtues at SeekersGuidance

SeekersGuidance recently offered a free course on fasting this Ramadan , entitled ,"The Fiqh of Fasting and it`s Virtues". The course was excellent and was in mp3 audio format that one could download and listen and re-listen forever, which is simply unbelievable, especially for people with a hectic schedule.It`s something that one can always store somewhere safe and benefit from every year in Ramadan.

The course allowed students to ask questions on the forum which were all answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani.They covered almost all possible aspects of fasting, from the intention, to tarawih, as well as ita`qaaf.The answers offered were very clear and comprehensive.If one makes a folder of all the questions and answers , this will be of utmost benefit, insh`Allah.

At the end of the course Shaykh Faraz offered the following dua :

"We ask Allah SWT that He benefit us from this month of Ramadan, that we be of those who fast out of faith and sincere seeking , whose fasting becomes a means for us to become people of taqwa , people of thankfulness , people of closeness to Allah SWT , people who answer the call of Allah SWT and who strive to bring their faith to life , people who seek Allah SWT and seek excellence in faith , people who become of those who submit to Allah and worship Allah as though we behold Him and if we behold Him not that we be of those who are actively aware that Allah SWT is watching over us.

We ask Allah SWT that He make His love and the love of His messenger [Allah bless him and give him peace] and the love of His religion greater in our hearts and in our lives and in our actions and our conduct than the love of anything else .And we ask Allah SWT to make us of those whose lives revolve , whose lives circumabulate around the love of Allah SWT."

He ended by sending salat on the Prophet [Allah bless him and give him peace] and his companions.

Needless to say SeekersGuidance is a splendid resource for seekers of Islamic knowledge.The fact that you can have mp3 downloadable lessons forever is like an immense , unending treasure of guidance.May Allah SWT reward Shaykh Faraz Rabbani for his unending and sincere efforts in benefitting the students of Islamic knowledge.
