Islām, Īmān & Iḥsān: The Ḥadīth of Jibrīl Part 3/4 – Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on 19th February 2016 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
The Ḥadīth of Jibrīl is highly regarded by the Ulama as being one of the greatest Hadith of Islam. Some even go as far as to say that all the teachings of religion stem from this one Hadith. This Hadith is comprehensive and covers everything, from the basic beliefs of every Muslim and their relationship with Allah to the Signs of the Hour. Some Ulama have gone to the extent of beginning their books with this Hadith, just as Imam Muslim has done in his Sahih.
This is the third lesson of the commentary of the Ḥadīth of Jibrīl. This lesson answers the question, ‘What is Ihsān?’. Ihsān is a rank that we should all aim to achieve as it brings a person closest to Allah. How is this rank achieved and what are its rewards? These and other questions are answered thoroughly.
