|Customer R. on 06/24/2010||Alhamdulillah, this lecture delivered by Br. Bilal Philips is presented not only in a clear and accessible manner, but a very thorough one as well. Br. Bilal reminds us of the importance of knowing and reflecting on this ahadith and highlights some of the qualities noted by righteous companions of the Prophet and by various scholars [may Allah be pleased with them all], which have caused this ahadith to reach the highest levels of authenticity. Also, how each of these 7 cases are connected in a sense that one will often lead to another when the remembrance and worship of Allah is the primary focus of the individual and the community. Step-by-step the categories and qualities of these special 7 cases are examined with the added encouragement to strive to meet these qualities in our own lives. Examples from the lives of the companions, the Quran, and the Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] add to the educational benefit of this lecture. Br. Bilal also offers some important warnings relating to the subject of this ahadith regarding aspects of shirk [such as a great breakdown of the dangers of wahdatul-wujood] and other deviant paths and errors that can destroy the believer's faith when trying to explain away Allah's attributes or things, which He says belong to Him - like His Throne, or by merely reducing worship into blind rituals. This lecture is just over two-hours long, but as with other lectures by this brother, it seems to go by so fast that you wish there was more. Also, I find that ILM Quest produced CD's have an outstanding audio quality about them and the sound of this two-disc set was very good. This only odd thing about ILM Quest audio is their opening and closing message, which begins with an old dial-up modem sound . . . be sure the volume is turned down especially if you're listening to this while driving. It can startle you as it did me the first time. I listen to this lecture multiple times throughout a week and is well worth looking into, Insha-Allah.|
