LOVE FOR THE BELOVED RASOOL SALLAL LAHU ALIHI W SALLAM
Every such person whom Almighty Allah has blessed with sanity and rationalism knows well that that to love him, whose love and honor is compulsory to be a true believer is the most valuable thing in the
Every person has a duty towards his parents, relatives, elders, and children and it is necessary for him to fulfill these responsibilities.
However, if for some reason forgets all of them and does not have the slightest love and affection left for them in his heart, causing him to become estranged from all of them, it will not cause any harm to his Imaan, since it is not compulsory upon him to accept or bring faith in his parents, relatives, elders, or children for him to be regarded as a believer, but for him to be regarded as a true believer, he must accept and bring faith in Muhammadur Rasoolullah.
If a person recites La ilaaha il’lal laa and does not believe in and accept fully Muhammadur Rasoolullah, he will never be regarded as a believer and if his connection and relationship to the love of The prophet are severed, then definitely he will be out of the folds of Imaan, for to declare acceptance of his Prophethood without his love can never remain intact.
It is for this reason that Shariat-e-Mutaahira has made the love of the Holy Prophet incumbent upon every Muslim, that we should love the Prophet more than our family, children, and all our relations.
Almighty Allah says in the Holy Qur’an:
“Say you, If your fathers and your sons and your brothers and your wives and your relations and the wealth of your earnings and the business deals in which you fear loss and the houses of your choice,
are things which are more beloved to you than Allah and His Prophet and fighting in His Path, then wait until the moment when Allah commands His Divine Ordinance. And Allah guides not the transgressors. (Surah Tauba – Ayah 24)
“And those who hurt the Prophet of Allah, for them there is an
agonizing retribution (Surah Tauba – Aya 61)
“And the right of Allah and His Prophet was greater; that they should
have pleased Him, if they possessed Imaan [faith]
(Surah Tauba – Ayah 62)
“Do they know not, that whosoever acts against Allah and His
Prophet, (then) for him there is the fire of hell, wherein he shall live
for all eternity. This is immense humiliation.”(Surah Tauba – Ayah
“And be obedient to the commands of Allah and His Prophet. These
are the ones on whom Allah will soon bestow His Mercy.
Undoubtedly, Allah is All Dominant, Wise.” (Surah Tauba – Ayah
“It was neither appropriate for the residents of Madinah and the
inhabitants of the neighboring Bedouins to remain sitting behind
after the Prophet, nor this, that, that they should regard their lives as
more sacred than his. (Surah Tauba – Ayah 120)
These verses of the Holy Quraan clearly show that it is an obligation
upon every Muslim to love and honor the Holy Prophet . If a
person does not show true and sincere love to the Holy Prophet he
will never be regarded as a True Believer.
We should all sincerely invoke Allah, that He may through His
Divine Grace bless us with a true love for our Master Hazrat
