Love the Prophet ﷺ

Shaykh Mehmet Adil Al-Haqqani, Sohbet of the 10th of September, 2016.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa raḥmatu Llāhi wa barakatuhu.

Ṭarīqatunā ṣ-ṣuḥbah wa l-khayru fi l-jam‘iyyah.

Our Prophet (saw) is the biggest gift, biggest favour of Allāh (jj). we have beeen honored to be from his (ﷺ) nation. Thousands of thanks to Allāh (jj). To be from the nation of the Prophet (ﷺ) is something that other prophets wished. The prophets (as) prayed: “we wish were from his (ﷺ) nation, it is ok even if we aren’t prophets”. They all lived with his (ﷺ) love, with his (ﷺ) affection. Because he (ﷺ) is the servant, Allāh ‘Azza wa Jalla loves. Whoever Allāh loves, good people love him.

Love of the Prophet (ﷺ) is farḍ on Muslims. The Prophet (ﷺ) says: “Who doesn’t love me more than his mother, father, children – they aren’t real believers”. There is Imān, there is Islām. Imān means to strongly believe in Allāh (jj). That’s a very high degree. Its reward is big here and hereafter. Once you get that taste of belief you can’t enjoy the other tastes of this world. The companions loved our Prophet (ﷺ) with such love. Awliyā’, Tābi‘īn coming after the companions taught that love of the Prophet (ﷺ) to everyone. Allāh helped with that love. Because if you love who Allāh loves, Allāh loves you.

Allāh (jj) created our Prophet (ﷺ) in the most perfect way. He (ﷺ) has the best attributes, also physically. Physically nobody had his beauty. When people sweat, they stink. Our Prophet’s (ﷺ) sweat smelled like rose. Once that smell touched, it wouldn’t go away. Real rose scents now they disappear in 5 minutes. Fake ones stay for 2 days, even if you wash your hand – that’s something else. We want the real one. Because the Prophet’s (ﷺ) was real, the most real one, it wouldn’t go away. His voice, beauty, peace had no equal.

Thanks to Allāh some people still see the Prophet (ﷺ) in their dreams. Some people are delusional and say that they saw the Prophet (ﷺ) in their dreams often. He (ﷺ) rarely appears. Normally you can see him (ﷺ) once or twice. Some people tell as if they saw their friend. They see something else. Because when you see the Prophet (ﷺ) in your dream, that’s happiness. No need even to interpret that dream. He gets the best thing, that’s Allāh’s (jj) gift. Once you see him (ﷺ) no need for anything else. Even interpreting is leaving good manners. You thank Allāh for seeing him (ﷺ), that this blessing, divine gift comes to you. These are holy days.

For the sake of the Prophet (ﷺ), these are beautiful days, that he (ﷺ) showed. Yawmu tTarwiyah. Our Prophet (ﷺ) went to last ḥajj today, to mount ‘Arafāt. First he (ﷺ) went to Muzdalifah, second day in the morning went up to ‘Arafāt, after stopping on ‘Arafāt in the evening, he (ﷺ) gave the khuṭbah the last khuṭbah.

Then he (saw) did the other ḥajj duties. He went down to Muzdalifah, from there to Minā, in Minā he (ﷺ) used to sacrifice an animal. They used to distribute it. They slaughtered a lot. They used to keep some, they didn’t waste it like today. They dried the meat on hot stones, it dried in couple of days. Then they completed the ḥajj, they did Ṭawāf and left. His (ﷺ) sunnah should be practiced but now in this crowd it is impossible to do them. You make intention on the Prophet’s (ﷺ) intention, may Allāh accept it in shā’a Llāh, he (ﷺ) accepts it. Because keeping sunnah equals the reward of 100 martyrs in the end of times. Some say sunnah isn’t necessary, if you like you do it, if not don’t. But people will be rewarded in the eternal life for doing it. Who don’t do it will regret it in the eternal life, saying: “I wish I did it, etc”. It is good to follow each step of our Prophet (ﷺ). May Allāh make it possible for all of us in shā’a Llāh.

Today we are al-ḥamdu liLlāh in very good, very holy day, day of what Prophet (ﷺ), the Beloved one for Allāh, he show us the best things Allāh give us, give us how to be from nation of Prophet (ﷺ). Muḥammad (ﷺ), he’s seal of prophets and he is the Beloved one for Allāh, most Beloved one for Allāh. And Allāh He create everything for his love. And Allāh, He love somebody, make good people to love him. All angels, all believers from jinn and ’ins [men] and angels, other all creatures even animals, everything, they love Prophet (ﷺ). They know about Prophet (ﷺ).

Who not love Prophet (saw)? Shayṭān and his followers, because they are cursed one. Allāh He not like. He didn’t, He did not love them. If love them, they must love Prophet (ﷺ). So who are not happy with Prophet, he is cursed one. Even who will not respect him, he is unlucky. Lucky one who are following Prophet (ﷺ). Because even prophets before Prophet (ﷺ), they were wishing to be one of nation of Prophet (ﷺ) instead to be a prophet. Like this they were loving Prophet (ﷺ) and wishing to be from his nation. So al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are very lucky. And we must appreciate this – thanking for Allāh 1,000 times, 10,000 times, 100,000 times to we are created from nation of Prophet (ﷺ).

And to love Prophet (ﷺ), it is obligatory for believers because Prophet (ﷺ) said “No one can be real believer until he loves me more than his father, mother, family, or even for himself.” We must love Prophet (ﷺ) more than ourself even, more than everything. The most precious thing, mother, father, family, himself. So Prophet is more precious treasure. And it is not bad to love Prophet (ﷺ) because Allāh He create him in most perfect. Most perfect creation for Prophet (ﷺ), spiritual and bodily. Because he’s maybe if say to you love somebody he’s ugly or he is not good behaved, it is difficult to love him. But Prophet (ﷺ), very easy to love him. His everything, he was want for his nation. From his creation until his death, every time he said “O my Lord, forgive my nation. Allāh, guide them to right way.” This is his wish. He not looking for his nation to get benefit from them, to get anything from them. No. Everything he get, Allāh give him the most perfect. Very easy to love him. And it is even his sweat smelling like rose, real rose, not this ḥajjī who are cheating people for putting one and not…, making headache. When it touching, going forever.

Even in dreams sometimes people they dream and smelling his smell. And to dream for Prophet (ﷺ), it is the most reward from Allāh for anybody to be. And it is very rare to get it, may once in life or twice, sometimes it even cannot be like this. Some people, they even for this they dreaming and they seeing another thing, they thought Prophet. It is Prophet (ﷺ) not so cheap to he come for you or for me every day. No, it’s very rare. And no need to ask for meaning for dream if you see Prophet (ﷺ). You must make two raka‘āt shukr. Because this is the most big present from Allāh for you to see Prophet (ﷺ) in your dream.

And he is help who love him. All ṣaḥābah were loving him. All prophets they were loving him. After ṣaḥābah, tabi‘īn, awliyā’, ‘ulamā’, all they were loving him and praising him and teaching people to encourage people to not forget, to not be not care for Prophet (ﷺ). This all time real ‘ulamā’, they are praising and making poems, making good things, all time showing and teaching people love of Prophet (ﷺ). But shayṭān he also not sitting with with not doing anything. Because once they bring him for Prophet (ﷺ). And he must ask him. Prophet (ﷺ) ask shayṭān. And he cannot lie that time. He said “Who is your most enemy for you and you most one you hate him?” He couldn’t say anything. He said “You” for Prophet (ﷺ). Shayṭān this saying. And he is still doing this even for Muslim people. They are not happy with people who are praising Prophet (ﷺ). They say “Too much. You cannot do this. This is shirk. This is that and that”. But it is real.

Awliyā’u Llāh, they are who are teaching people to love Prophet (ﷺ). Al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are in days of his showing us – today tarwiyah for his last ḥajj, Prophet (ﷺ) Ḥajju l-Akbar, meaning when ‘Arafat in Jum‘ah day, Friday. And he is Thursday went by his camel to Muzdalifah and Yawmu t-Tarwiyah they are going like this and a day of sleeping there. Next day they are by camel going to ‘Arafāt. Until maghrib make waqfah. And he make Khuṭbatu l-Wadā‘ and after coming to Muzdalifah. After Muzdalifah – Minā, to cutting, slaughter. And after this he is doing everything. But these days you cannot do everything he done in ḥajj because it is sunnah. And now people by millions and not everybody can do what Prophet (ﷺ).

We are asking forgiveness. We like to do his sunnah. We must do his sunnah because to do his sunnah, it is also they said it is not obligatory. No. “Don’t care for this. Do, only do what enough for ḥajj.” But no we said “Ok, you are free to do sunnah”. It is also for you, Allāh not punishing for sunnah. But when you are in real life and end, forever you will be in jannah you will be very regret to not do anything you can do in this world. Who do this, he will see his benefit from what he done in jannah, in paradise. He wish to have done everything from Prophet (ﷺ) done. Because to do sunnah, it is hundred shahīd. Martyr for each sunnah you do. And al-ḥamdu liLlāh we are thanking Allāh again to be from his nation. Allāh help us to do everything he done from sunnah and farḍ and everything in shā’a Llāh. This is our intention. Allāh accept our intention.

Wa min Allāhi t-tawfīq, al-Fātiḥah.
