    The Love of MUHAMMAD (ﷺ) : The Last Messenger of God

    The Muslim’s faith cannot be complete unless he loves the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), and until the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is dearer to him than his father, his son, his own self and all the people. It was narrated that Anas said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “No one of you truly believes until I am dearer to him than his father, his son, his own self and all the people.” - Narrated by al-Bukhari, 15; Muslim, 44.

    Because true iman depends on true devotion and love towards our Beloved Messenger (ﷺ) and because we cannot love our Beloved Messenger, the Habibullah (ﷺ), without knowing him in all his beauty and without learning from the devotion that the Sahaba had towards him, I share with you this short but amazing video. I hope, insha Allah, that it will inspire you and strengthen your faith.

    A fascinating description of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) by Sheikh Wahaj Tarin, based on authentic ahadith.

    Here we can taste and appreciate first hand the awe and reverence that we all must have for the Beloved Prophet (ﷺ), the most perfect human being to have ever walked the face of the earth.

      Directly related to the main subject of this thread, I've found an interesting talk by the famous Syrian Sufi Sheikh Al-Yaqoubi, himself a descendant of the Prophet (ﷺ).

      Yearning for the Beloved: Reflections on our Attachment to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w).

      Sheikh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi talks about being a descendant of the Prophet (ﷺ), the blessings associated with name of the Prophet (ﷺ), the virtues and benefits that personal attachment to him bring, some living examples of the pious ulema of Damascus, ending with a theological explanation of what it is to yearn for the Messenger of God (ﷺ).

        Laqad jaakum rasulun min anfusikum. 'Azizun 'alayhi ma 'anittum; harisun 'alaykum bil-mu'minina raufun rahim.

        "There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you and to the believers is kind and merciful." (9:128)

          From Qadi Iyad's al Shifa.

          Section 1: Concerning the necessity of loving him

          Allah says, "Say: 'If your fathers or your sons or your brothers or your wives or your tribe, or any wealth you have acquired, or any business you fear may slump, or any dwelling-places which please you, are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger and fighting hard in jihad in His Way, then wait until Allah brings about His command.'"(9:25)

          This is enough encouragement, advice, proof and indication of the necessity of loving him and is sufficient to show that this duty is an immensely important obligation which is the Prophet's due. Allah censures those whose property, families and children are dearer to them than Allah and His Messenger. He threatens them by adding, "Wait until Allah brings about His command." At the end of the verse He considers such people as having done wrong and informs them they are among those who are astray and not guided by Allah.

          Anas reported that the Messenger of Allah said, "None of you will believe until I am more beloved to him than his children, his father and all people." (al-Bukhari, Muslim & an-Nasa'i) There is something similar from Abu Hurayra.

          Anas reported that the Prophet said, "There are three things which cause anyone who takes refuge in them to experience the sweetness of belief - that Allah and His Messenger are more beloved to him than anything else; that he loves a man only for Allah; and that he dislikes the thought of reverting to disbelief as much as he would dislike being cast into the Fire." (al-Bukhari & Muslim))

          'Umar ibn al-Khattab told the Prophet,"I love you more than anything except my soul which is between my two sides." The Prophet replied, "None of you will believe until I am dearer to him than his own soul." 'Umar said, "By the One who sent down the Book on you, I love you more than my soul which is between my two sides." The Prophet said, "'Umar, now you have it!" (al-Bukhari)

          Sahl said, "Whoever does not think that the Messenger is his master in all states or think that he is under the dominion of the Prophet does not taste the sweetness of his Sunna because the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'None of you will believe until I am dearer to him than himself.'"
