Loving him Everyday: Our Messenger

Allah says in the Holy Qur’an

قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ

Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful”

Ali Imran: 31 – Translation by Saheeh International

One of the conditions and virtues of a true believer is the everflowing love for our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, a mercy to all mankind. Loving our Messenger stands for sending salaams upon him, it is aspiring to follow his footsteps, striving to build his character and praying to be united with our prophet one day as much as he did. In a hadith, Prophet ﷺ said,

وددتُ أنِّي لقيتُ إخواني قالَ : فقالَ أصحابُ النَّبيِّ – صلَّى اللَّهُ عليهِ وعلى آلِهِ وسلَّمَ – أوليسَ نحنُ إخوانَكَ قالَ : بل أنتُم أصحابي ولكنْ إخواني الَّذينَ آمَنوا بي ولم يرَوني.

“I wish I could meet my brothers.” The Companions said, “Are we not your brothers?” The Prophet said, “You are my companions, but my brothers are those who believe in me although they never saw me.”

Narrated by Imam Ahmad 12579
