You will be with those whom you love – who do you love?

Love is shown through one’s obidience, if we love Allah and His Prophet Muhammad SAW (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) – we will obey them and not go against the teachings of Islaam.

Sh Yasir Qadhi explained this in his lecture “Love for the Prophet SAW.mp3” where he stated:

What does it mean when we say “We love Allah and His Messenger”? Allah answers this for us in the Quran, where he says: “Say O Muhammad: If you truely Love Allah then follow me (i.e. The Prophet), then Allah will love you and forgive you your sins”. In this ayat Allah places a condition to us Muslims, being “if” we truely love Him we would follow the Prophet Muhammad, and then Allah will love us. This ayat is called the verse of the test, why? Because this verse tests if we truely love the Prophet Muhammad SAW, because if we did then the criteria is to follow him.

Every Muslim undoubtedly would say they love the Prophet Muhammad SAW, no Muslim would say they do not — yet what diffentiates true love for the Prophet Muhammad SAW is that criteria “following his sunnah (way/practices/traditions..etc).”

Is it possible to say you love your mother, you love your father, you love your brother — but every second of the day you disobey their commandments? Is it possible, you claim to love somebody, but when they ask you to do something – you DO NOT do it? In what language is this the defintion of Love? ….. When Allah or His Messenger command for us to do something, and we do not do it, in what language does this qualify as Love? Yes it is easy to say that we love Allah and His Messenger, but true love shown through ones actions, through ones Aqeedah, through how we treat our wives, our family — throughout the days, weeks, months and years.

Again, yes every Muslim says they love the Prophet or claim to love him, but how many actually love him in the true sense?

A Bedouin man asked the Prophet SAW, “O Messenger of Allah, when will be the Day of Judgement?”

The Prophet SAW replied, “What have you prepared for it?”

He said, “I have not prepared for it a great deal of prayer, fasting nor charity, but I love Allah and His Messenger intensely”

The Prophet SAW said, “You will be with those whom you love.”

The Muslims had never rejoiced as much they did when they heard this hadith. (Sahih Bukhari)

On the Day of Judgement, you will be with those whom you love – who do you truely love, admire and follow? .. because you will be with them on that Day. May we be with our beloved Nabi SAW on that Day {ameen}
