Relationship with Prophet Muhammad
Sallallahu alaihe wasallam
Our relationship with the Messenger of Allah is connected with our faith and to the strength of our
love for him. When our faith increases, our love for the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wassallam increases
and our relationship with him becomes stronger. Having a close relationship with Prophet sallallahu
alaihe wassallam means loving him which is an act of obedience to Allaah and a means of drawing
closer to Him. Loving the Prophet sallallahu alaihe wassallam is one of the obligatory duties in Islam.
It was narrated that Anas radiallahu anhu said: The Prophet sallallahu alaihe wassallam said: “None of
you truly believes until I am more beloved to him than his father, his children and all the people.”
(Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 15; Muslim, 44)
The way to strengthen our relationship with Prophet sallallahu alaihe wassallam is by following his
Sunnah in words and deeds, so that his Sunnah is the path we follow in our whole life, and put his
words before any other words and put his command before everything else.
May Allaah help us to love His Messenger sallallahu alaihe wassallam and to make him dearer to us
than our children, parents, families and our own selves.
Follow the authentic Sunnah and stay away from bidah
Prophet Sallallahu alaihe wasallam said: “Whoever introduces anything into this matter of ours that
is not part of it will have it rejected.”
It is narrated from Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) used to say in his Friday khutbahs: “The best of speech is the Book of Allah and the
best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad Sallallahu alaihe wasallam. The most evil of things are
those which are newly-invented, and every innovation (
) is a going-astray.”
