I Love Muhammad (PBUH)



Who is Muhammad (PBUH)?




Muhammad (PBUH) is the last and final prophet sent by Allah to guide humanity to the truth. He was born in Mecca, Arabia, in the year 570 CE. His father died before he was born, and his mother died when he was six years old. He was raised by his grandfather and then by his uncle, who were both respected leaders of their tribe. He grew up as an honest, trustworthy, and generous person, earning the nickname "Al-Amin" (the trustworthy one).


At the age of 40, he received his first revelation from Allah through the angel Jibril (Gabriel), who told him that he was chosen as a messenger of Allah. He began to preach the message of Islam, which means submission to Allah, the one and only God. He invited people to worship Allah alone and to follow his commands. He also taught them to be kind, compassionate, just, and moral. He faced a lot of opposition and persecution from his own people, who were mostly idol-worshippers. He endured many hardships and trials for the sake of Allah and his message.


After 13 years of preaching in Mecca, he migrated to Medina, where he established the first Islamic community and state. He continued to receive revelations from Allah until his death in 632 CE. The revelations that he received are compiled in the Quran, which is the holy book of Islam. The Quran is the word of Allah, unchanged and uncorrupted. The Quran contains guidance, wisdom, laws, stories, miracles, and proofs for all aspects of life. The Quran is also a miracle itself, as it challenges anyone to produce something like it or even a chapter of it.


Muhammad (PBUH) also left behind his sunnah, which is his way of life, his actions, his sayings, and his approvals. The sunnah is recorded in authentic books of hadith, which are narrations from his companions who witnessed his life. The sunnah explains and complements the Quran, as it shows how Muhammad (PBUH) applied the Quran in his daily life. The sunnah is also a source of legislation and guidance for Muslims.


Muhammad (PBUH) was not just a prophet, but also a leader, a statesman, a judge, a teacher, a reformer, a husband, a father, a friend, and a human being. He had the best character and manners, as Allah testified in the Quran: "And indeed, you are of a great moral character." (Quran 68:4) He was kind, gentle, humble, generous, patient, forgiving, brave, wise, and truthful. He was the best to his family, his companions, his neighbors, his enemies, and even to animals and the environment. He was the most beloved person to Allah and to his followers.


Why do I love Muhammad (PBUH)?




I love Muhammad (PBUH) for many reasons, but I will mention only three of them here.


First, I love Muhammad (PBUH) because he is the best example for humanity. Allah says in the Quran: "There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often." (Quran 33:21) Muhammad (PBUH) showed us how to live according to the will of Allah in every situation and circumstance. He showed us how to worship Allah with sincerity and devotion. He showed us how to deal with people with justice and mercy. He showed us how to face challenges and difficulties with patience and perseverance. He showed us how to enjoy the blessings and pleasures of this life with gratitude and moderation. He showed us how to prepare for the hereafter with hope and fear. He showed us how to be the best version of ourselves.


Second, I love Muhammad (PBUH) because he is the mercy to the worlds. Allah says in the Quran: "And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds." (Quran 21:107) Muhammad (PBUH) was sent as a mercy to all of creation, not just to humans, but also to animals, plants, and even inanimate objects. He brought the message of Islam, which is the message of peace, justice, and harmony. He taught us to respect and protect the rights of all living beings. He taught us to be kind and compassionate to the weak, the poor, the oppressed, and the needy. He taught us to forgive and pardon those who wrong us. He taught us to spread goodness and happiness wherever we go. He taught us to be a source of mercy for others.


Third, I love Muhammad (PBUH) because he is the leader of the prophets. Allah says in the Quran: "Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets." (Quran 33:40) Muhammad (PBUH) is the seal of the prophets, meaning that he is the final messenger sent by Allah and that there will be no prophet after him. He is also the leader of all the prophets who came before him, such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and others (peace be upon them all). He confirmed their messages and completed their missions. He received from Allah the most comprehensive and perfect revelation, which abrogated all previous revelations. He was given by Allah the highest rank and status among all creation. He will be granted by Allah the greatest intercession on the Day of Judgment.


How can I show my love for Muhammad (PBUH)?

Allah says in the Quran: "Say [O Muhammad], 'If you should love Allah , then follow me; [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins.'"

PBUH) means expressing our respect and admiration for him. It means invoking Allah's mercy and favor upon him. It means acknowledging his rights and status over us. It means increasing our love and connection with him. It also means earning Allah's love and forgiveness for ourselves, as the Prophet (PBUH) said: "Whoever sends blessings upon me once, Allah will send blessings upon him ten times." (Muslim)


Third, I can show my love for Muhammad (PBUH) by defending his honor and reputation. Allah says in the Quran: "Indeed, We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner. That you [people] may believe in Allah and His Messenger and honor him and respect the Prophet and exalt Allah morning and afternoon." (Quran 48:8-9) Defending Muhammad (PBUH) means standing up for his message and mission. It means refuting the lies and misconceptions that are spread about him and his religion. It means exposing the plots and schemes that are aimed at harming him and his followers. It means supporting his cause and striving in his way.

First, loving Muhammad (PBUH) increases our faith and obedience to Allah. Allah says in the Quran: "The believers are only those who believe in Allah and His Messenger and, when they are [meeting] with him for a matter of common interest, do not depart until they have asked his permission. Indeed, those who ask your permission, [O Muhammad] - those are the ones who believe in Allah and His Messenger. So when they ask your permission for something of their affairs, then give permission to whom you will among them and ask forgiveness for them of Allah . Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful." (Quran 24:62) Loving Muhammad (PBUH) means believing in him as the messenger of Allah and following his instructions. It means submitting to his authority and judgment. It means respecting his decisions and preferences. It means preferring his pleasure over our own desires.


Second, loving Muhammad (PBUH) brings us happiness and peace in this life and the next. Allah says in the Quran: "Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance of Allah . Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured." (Quran 13:28) Loving Muhammad (PBUH) means remembering him often and keeping him in our hearts. It means feeling his presence and companionship. It means finding comfort and solace in his words and deeds. It means experiencing joy and satisfaction in his love. It also means attaining his intercession and companionship in the hereafter, as he said: "The closest people to me on the Day of Resurrection will be those who send the most blessings upon me." (Tirmidhi)


Third, loving Muhammad (PBUH) makes us eligible for his intercession on the Day of Judgment. Allah says in the Quran: "And [mention] the Day when We will resurrect among every nation a witness over them from themselves. And We will bring you, [O Muhammad], as a witness over your nation. And We have sent down to you the Book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy and good tidings for the Muslims."

It means hoping for his mercy and favor upon us. It also means receiving his intercession on the Day of Judgment, when he will plead to Allah on behalf of his followers, as he said: "My intercession will be for those of my nation who committed major sins." (Abu Dawud)
