621-MUHAMMAD, ALLAH’S MESSENGERﷺ

MUHAMMAD, ALLAH’S MESSENGERﷺ

Rang-o-Noor (BY SA'DI)

(Shumara: 621)

اللھم صل علی محمد وعلیٰ آل محمد کما صلیت علی ابراہیم وعلیٰ آل ابراہیم انک حمید مجید We demand help and assistance from Allah. I have started writing on love for the Messenger of Allahﷺ. How great difference! I am so small person but have started so vast topic. The heart is perplexed, pen is impotent and knowledge is powerless. Help me O Allah! When I was holding Istikhaarah to write on it, the idea struck me to start with the name of Allah. If unable to write anything, keep writing Durood because the partridge cannot reach the moon but musters up courage to reach there. When it takes its flight, it falls down. It cannot reach the moon but gets its name noted among those who love the moon. The moth cannot amass the light of the candle but makes its best efforts and sacrifices his life in it. Love for the Holy Prophetﷺ is our faith. This love is the most important requirement of faith. This love is very high and elevated. The price of this love is very heavy. The standard of this love is very weighty. It is Allah's grace and favour and the Holy Prophet'sﷺ mercy that door to love for him is open till the Day of Judgement. This amorous bar will remain populated till the Day of Judgement. I seek help from Allah to write on this topic. May Allah make it easy and accept it making it an asset for the Hereafter! Subhaan Allah! Love for the Messengerﷺ. Mad-love for the Holy Prophetﷺ! A famous poet Abu Farass Al-Hamdaani in the Abbasid period once said:

من مذھبی حب الدیار لاھلہا وللناس فیما یعشقون مذاہب
My policy is that I love the house due to their dwellers,
And people have their own ways/policies in love.
I modify this verse and recite it as under:
من مذہبی حب النبی وجہادہ وللناس فیما یعشقون مذاہب
"My policy is to love the Holy Prophetﷺ and his Jihaad,
And people have their own ways/polices in love."

May all happen the same and all of us should be blessed with love for the holy Prophetﷺ forever and ever! We have made our claim for love. Every claim demands proof but we have no proof with us rather we have supplications after the claim as, "O Allah, make us true in this claim enabling our hearts to be worthy of loving You and Your beloved." We supplicate so because the door to love is open to the Day of Judgement. It is true that the door to companionship of the Holy Prophetﷺ has closed. None can become the companion of the Prophetﷺ now but the door to love for the Messenger of Allahﷺ is open. The Holy Prophetﷺ says; من اشد امتی لی حبا ناس یکونون من بعدی یود احدہم لو رآنی باھلہ ومالہ ( صحیح مسلم
The most staunch are my followers who succeed me.
They want to sacrifice all their ealth, families, wives and children just to visit me." (Al-Muslim)
It means they will get ready to sacrifice every dear thing as a price of having one glimpse and sight of the Holy Prophetﷺ. Subhaan Allah! The Holy Prophetﷺ himself calls the love of the people true, staunch and intense giving the glad tidings that they will succeed himﷺ. As heﷺ has said that these people will succeed him, they will certainly emerge. They appeared in the past. They are present now and will keep appearing in future also. They are true staunch lovers of the Holy Prophetﷺ who offer every type of sacrifice for him who are steeped from head to toe in love for him. This topic of the tradition is found in so many narrations. This emboldens and encourages us that we should also demand true love from Allah because the door to this love is still open at this moment even. This is clemency of the Holy Prophetﷺ to this Ummah that the people who could not find his age, who could not have a glimpse of his sacred face, who could not benefit themselves from his holy and sacred company but who are his true faithful and head-offering slaves that heﷺ has given glad-tidings for them. The Holy Prophetﷺ says; طوبی لمن رآنی وآمن بی مرۃ وطوبی لمن لم یرنی وآمن بی سبع مرات
"There is glad-tidings for the one who visits me and believes in me and there are seven pieces of glad-
tidings for the one who believes in me without visiting me." (Al-Jaami')
It does not mean that those who visited him lagged blind. They found so much that nothing is equal to it but those who could not visit him also were not deprived. Grand glad-tidings for them is on the basis that they came near despite remaining far away as they became mad-lovers without visiting. Moreover, the Holy Prophetﷺ endowed on us the bounty of Durood which will satiate thirst and hope of the true lovers till the Day of Judgement. The Holy Prophetﷺ says, "اولی الناس بی یوم القیامۃ اکثرھم علی صلوۃ Only that will be nearest to me on the Day of Judgement who recites Durood on me in abundance."
The competition of Durood that we conduct on Friday is called Beauty Contest because this Durood takes us near the Prophetﷺ of beauty and love for true beauty makes man beautiful.
How strange is the heart! It begins to dry up and harden when it does not find Allah's mercy. When it is also filled with selfishness and materialism, true love cannot enter it. There is all mercy in Durood. Ten mercies and fifty bounties are gained at one recitation. So Durood should be recited very respectfully, venerably and very attentively without any break. Alas! We think very little, study very little, know very little and speak very little about the Holy Prophetﷺ whereas we should think, study, know and speak much about him because his name, his words, his Sunnah, his mention and his life is all mercy. It is Allah's great favour that He has blessed us with Kalimah Tayyibah لا الہ الا اللہ and محمد رسول اللہ after it. In this way, we get attached with the one who is the best, superior, perfect and the most beautiful in the creature. We get the person due to relation and excessive love for him so we keep progressing and keep going near Allah. Now, the requirement of gratitude of this bounty is that we may understand Hazrat Muhammadﷺ, his attributes and learn and follow his Sunnah. If we do so, our lives will be filled with resplendence and fragrance. There should be no day in the life of a Muslim when he does not learn any of his Sunnah, his tradition or his life. Most of all, we should make the Holy Prophetﷺ a criterion of wisdom, civilization, progress, beauty, honour and success. It means that we should believe that whatever he says and does is wisdom, civilization progress, respect, success and beauty. Neither is science nor sayings of the known intelligentsia of the world is a proof for us. The biggest proof for us is the Holy Prophet'sﷺ words and deeds whether science verifies it or not, the so-called civilization of the world verifies it or not. There is no difference if sayings of the intelligentsia are in accordance with or against it.
We should not consider scientific research final. These findings change after every ten years. The scientists are like the aunt which measures and witnesses the ocean and the earth. After ten years, this ant states as much ocean and earth it watches. When it advances, it begins to feel ashamed of its research, so it begins to recede. Universe is very vast. Instruments of the scientists are very small whereas Allah had subdued the whole universe for Hazrat Muhammadﷺ. He observed the earth, the sky and the worlds after the skies. So, whatever he says is true. These days, a very dangerous tendency has arisen that people judge the words of the Holy Prophetﷺ at the scale of science. They rejoice if those word are in accordance with science, if contrary to it, they indulge themselves in inferiority complex and give justifications. If only they had recited Surah Al-Hijuraat in which Allah has warned, "Do not raise your voice higher than that of the Holy Prophetﷺ and do not deal with his point like those of common people. If you do so, all of your deeds will go waste when you do not know it."
The people who give the voice of the rulers more importance than that of the Holy Prophetﷺ and judge the words of the Holy Prophetﷺ making their own research a criterion exercise a great oppression, a very great oppression. This is not a cheap love. This is a very precious love. Complete respectability is first condition of this love. اللھم بارک علی محمد وعلیٰ آل محمد کما بارکت علی ابراہیم وعلیٰ آل ابراہیم انک حمید مجید

لا الہ الا اللّٰہ، لا الہ الا اللّٰہ ،لا الہ الا اللّٰہ محمد رسول اللّٰہ

اللہم صل علی سیدنا محمد والہ وصحبہ وبارک وسلم تسلیما کثیرا کثیرا

لا الہ الا اللّٰہ محمد رسول اللّٰہ
