But Why MUST We Love Prophet Muhammad???

How Do We Love?

They say “Love Doesn’t Ask Why“, but I’m pretty sure it asks “How?” How do you know you truly love someone?

For starters, they’re always on your mind, right? You want to find out everything about that person.

If he or she loves a certain movie, you’ll find out. If they’ve visited a certain place, you’ll go there too.

You’ll want to almost become them, or at least like them. You’ll want to make them like you and to be proud of you.

When our Messenger said those words, he perfectly acknowledged that love isn’t just words. Love is a verb.

It’s not only something you feel, it’s something you work and sacrifice for with all your heart.

To love Muhammad is to remember him constantly.

To truly love him is to find out everything there is to find out about him.

Study him. Memorize his words. Feel his presence within you and keep it alive.

But Why MUST We Love Prophet Muhammad??? - About Islam

Ask yourself, which is more important? Him or your friends? Him or your sleep? Him or his provocative outfits and sleazy innuendos?

Let’s face it, no one can force you to love him, just like no one can force you to find peace in prayer or joy in charity. It’s a privilege that only benefits you. No one else.  

Whether you love him or not, it won’t change his status, but it will definitely change yours.

A man will be with those whom he loves.”-Prophet Muhammad (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

So tell me. When you reach 70 or 80 years on earth, where do you want to spend your eternity and beyond?

Because maybe, even if you haven’t done enough, your true love for Muhammad could be your ticket to the highest level of Paradise. How?

Find that part of you that was born and raised to love him, or has been encouraged to do so after you converted.

And the best way to do that is to imagine your life without him and that all what he did for mankind.

Ask Yourself:

Would you even be Muslim?

Would you know ‘inner peace’?

Without Muhammad, whose perfect character would you emulate?

Who would you look up to for guidance when everyone else lets you down?

Who would be worthy enough to be your role model? To influence your thoughts, habits, goals and dreams?

Close your eyes and feel it for a minute.

If Prophet Muhammad walks through those doors right now.

Would you feel nothing? Or feel everything at once? I know you know the answer to this question.

It’s why we call him “The Beloved.” He is the one who you will find the best kind of beautiful, “relatable” person.
