Loving the prophet Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم , part 1

To love is to be happy, to be content. For love is to be pleased with something, something which gives us happiness. To love is to be healthy, for happiness gives us health whilst sadness and anger give us pain which causes illness. Love is the emotion which has made us who we are, for it was our mothers and our fathers who loved us. Who loved us so much that they made many sacrifices to raise us. Love is beauty. Love is a beautiful emotion, which beautifies human relations. One should always love. One should not hate unless that which is hated deserves to be hated. However ones heart in essence should be a heart which is filled with love, filled with happiness, filled with compassion. We love many things. Just as we love so does the One who created us, the supreme ruler of the heavens and the earth, the entire universe. In existence there are but two. The first. There is the creator, glory be to Him. The creator, the king of the universe has always been and will always be. He is the reality. There was nothing before Him. There is nothing independent of Him. He is the reality. Then the second of these two is that which the creator has created that is everything else besides Him. The creation.   Just as we love so does the One who created us. Who created the very act of love and love itself.   Besides Him there is nothing else besides creation, and besides creation there is nothing else but Him. So from this creation whom or what does He love? Does He love the Sun and the Moon before all else which are nought but glorified rocks or balls? Does He love atoms before all else? He loves the best of creation. The best of creation, صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم, is the one who unlike the Sun can choose to do right or wrong, a being صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم with emotions, with feelings, with pain, with joy, with needs. So who is this one who is the best of creation and the blessed recipient of immense divine love? This one is none other then the noble messenger, the best of creation, the most noble of creatures, Muhammad ibn Abdullah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم.  muhammad-pbuh-calligraphyIs to love wrong? No, but to love is right. To love is noble. We should love. We must love. We cannot choose not to love. To love is to survive. A man who lives and does not love but bears emptiness or just hate is not living. This is not a true life. Life without love is not life. The love of the Creator is majestic and beyond comparison. His greatness is infinite. His love cannot be compared to our love, for He is the incomparable, the supreme, the majestic, the ultimate One. So how then if we love and He, the Almighty loves can we understand the magnitude of the Creator’s love? We can never come close to the love the creator has for His most beloved, the best of creation, the noble Messenger and mercy to the worlds, Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم. However though our love is nothing compared to the immense and vast love of the Creator for His beloved Messenger we have been told to love the noble Messenger, صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم.
