He is a man who is so easy to love. He is a man whose beauty, perfection and love for us shines through so clearly, yet our hearts seem to be blinded.
May peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
The Prophet of Allah ﷺ was by far, the most remarkable man that ever set foot on this earth. He was a religious teacher, a social reformer, a moral guide, a just ruler, a faithful friend, a devoted husband and a loving father – all in one.
He loved us more than our parents could ever love us.
He wept for us in the depths of the night.
He only wished the best for us.
He worried for us.
He wished to meet us. He called us his brothers.
We have in him, a perfect role model.
He conveyed the best religion to us.
He lived the Quran for us to see and follow.
He left us on a Straight Path, which leads straight to Jannah.
The Best of Allah’s Creation. May peace and blessings be upon him.
Through him, Allah unsealed and unlocked people’s hearts, and opened their eyes and ears, and saved them from the pit of Fire. His Prophet-hood is a great favour upon us.
Allah says: ‘Verily, Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet: O’ you who believe! Send blessings on him, and salute him with a worthy salutation.’ (Surah al-Ahzaab:33)
When your heart is filled with love, the salawaat (salutations) will flow naturally from your tongue. But how can you love him when you do not know him well? His looks, his likes and dislikes, his routine, his habits, his sayings, how well do you actually know him?
Today, take out some time to listen to a lecture on Seerah.
(Recommendation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPb3tn49iDA), feel the love, and send abundant salawaat on Rasulullah (the Prophet of Allah) ﷺ.
This is one of the best ways to receive the Mercy and Forgiveness of Allah, as well as to have your duas accepted!
