How to become a Lover of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam


How to become a Lover of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam:

‘Hazrat Ibn Abdullah Ansari Radiallahu Anhu narrates that he asked the Prophet Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, “What was created first?”

Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam replied: “the first thing that Allah created was my Noor, with his own Noor, before anything else. The Noor was floating about and travelling wherever Allah wished. Then Allah wanted to create everything, so he split the Noor in to four parts. With the first He created the Pen, with the second he created the tablet of destiny, with the third he created the Arsh, and He split fourth in to another four.

With the first of that He created the angels that would carry His throne,
with the second He created His throne, with the third He created the rest of His angels, and He split the fourth in to another four.

With the first He created the Heavens, with the second the planets, with the third he created paradise and hell, and he split the fourth in to another four.

With the first of that he created the Noor of the Mumin’s eyes, with the
second he created the Noor of the Mumin’s hearts and with the third he
created love…”
(This Hadith has been narrated by Hazrat Abdul Razzaq Radiallahu Anhu, in his book
Fatawa-e-Hadithia, page 289.)

It is clear from the above Hadith that the Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam Noor is manifest in all of creation. The Universe was dark before it was illuminated by the Noor of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam .The Noor of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is manifest even in the sun. The sun never sets; it is always shining somewhere. And the people whose eyes have been blessed by Allah the almighty can see the Noor of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam present in the core of the sun. All the miracles of nature are under the command of the Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.’

‘Hazrat Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu relates that Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam once asked Jibrail Alayhi Salam:

“Oh Jibrail, how old are you?”

He replied: “I do not know. But I know this much, that there was a star in the fourth heaven that used to shine after every 70, 000 years and I have seen that star 72, 000 times.”

On hearing this Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “By the honour of Allah the almighty, I am that star!”

70 000 x 72 000 = 5, 040, 000, 000 (five billion, forty million) years. That star that shone for billions of years before creation – is it not shining now?

Imam Qastalani Alayhi Rahma writes that when Allah the almighty created Hazrat Adam Alayhi Salam, Allah put in his heart: “oh Allah, why is one of my names Abu
Muhammad?”

Allah told him to raise his head. When he looked up, he saw a Noor and he asked: “Oh Allah what is this Noor?” Allah the almighty replied: “This is the Noor of a Prophet from among your descendants. His name in the heavens is Ahmad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and on the earth Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. If it was not for him I would not have created you, nor would have I created the heavens or the earth.”

Whoever learned to live learned to live because of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Whoever got something or received something, received it because of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
There is no blessing in any gathering that does not have his name mentioned in it. The remembrance of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is the sole reason for the beauty of this world. The excitement and the exhilaration we feel in this world is because of Him Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.

If someone insulted Allah the almighty, Allah may choose to ignore the person’s indiscretion. But if someone insulted the Habib of Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam He will never ignore this.

When the people of Salih Alayhi Salam hamstrung the camel of Hazrat Salih Alayhi Salam, Allah the almighty did not tolerate this and destroyed them. The people of Salih Alayhi Salam hamstrung the camel of Salih Alayhi Salam and Allah destroyed them all. But the people had been denying the existence of Allah the almighty for a long time before they hamstrung the camel.

The punishment came because they insulted the Prophet of Allah – by killing his camel. Allah the almighty did not tolerate this. Then consider this – what about insulting the Habib of Allah Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
To say again and again, by calling out their names that the Prophets can’t do anything and don’t know anything is inexcusable and disrespectful.

This is like standing in the presence of the King and saying that the King’s minister is nothing, has no authority and can do nothing – declaring that all the control is the King’s hand. To say this in the presence of the whole court of the King is something the King will not tolerate. It is true that in the presence of the King, nobody has any authority. But in spite of this, asserting that the minister cannot do anything is an insult to the King. It is the King who has given the authority to the minister. Hence, to deny the authority of the minister is to deny the authority of the King.

Likewise it is Allah who has given the authority to the Prophets Alayhi Salam and to deny this in His presence is not only an insult to the Prophets Alayhi Salam but also an insult to Allah the Almighty.

And understand this as well! The love of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is higher in status than the obedience of Allah the almighty. You may be obedient to Allah but might not love Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. But if you truly love Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, then you will be obedient to Allah the almighty.

Obedience can be without love. For example a servant may be obedient to his master but that does not mean he loves his master. It is quite possible that the servant may obey his master but when he meets with other people he is disrespectful to his master. But a lover can never criticize his beloved. If this is true for an ordinary lover and his beloved – then how can we even dare to criticize and question the best of creation, the one who has no faults, the embodiment of perfection Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
Whenever anyone was gripped with misfortune he escaped his calamity through remembrance of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. Do you think that Allah the almighty can ignore the remembrance of His beloved? No never!

Everlasting contentment and exhilaration in the love of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is drinking a glass full of His love. If this glass was for sale we would sell everything to get it. What are crowns and thrones – we would sell our souls to get this one drink of the love of Him Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
Oh the King of Beauty Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam! Neither to listen, nor to say anything but simply waste away and remain engrossed in your love Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is the best life in this world. Our sayings, if based on true love, in praise of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam are above shirk. Our condition is pitiable; we do not even have the words that can justify the magnificence and splendour of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. How can we, the worthless statues of clay, adequately praise the Habib Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam of Allah the almighty?

Ya Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam! If we sacrificed our wealth, our lives, our souls for you – even then we would not have fulfilled the rights of Your love. To sacrifice everything for you is what love truly is.

Without Him Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam what Jannah is that? To wither away in the search for Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is better than paradise. Without finding Him Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam there is no comfort what so ever. This sort of shirk we do every day – and neither do we refrain from it and nor will we avoid it.

The author, Babaji Sarkar Alayhi Rahma, says if according to some people, Allah the almighty will command me to be thrown in to the fire of Hell for the crime of loving Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam – then this humble servant with his heart full of love for Him Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam will jump in to the fire of Hell with no fear whatsoever! To be in the fire of Hell with His love Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is a lot better than going to paradise without Him. And understand this as well – no fire can ever overcome the Noor (Light) of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. The love of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam will cool the fire of Hell – and this is such a strong part of my Iman that no reasoning and no amount of argument can ever change it.

What you think will get me thrown in the fire of hell – for me it is the key to paradise. It is possible that on the Day of Judgment, Allah the almighty may not forgive the one who prayed five times a day. But there is no doubt that the Ashiq E Rasul Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam lover of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam will undeniably be forgiven.

Hell fire is haram for the lovers of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. The fire of hell can never burn the true lover of the beloved of Allah the almighty and neither will Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam be able to bear seeing his lover in the fire of Hell.

You have everything but the love of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam – it is as if you have nothing.

O my Master Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, may my soul be sacrificed for you! This world is in existence because of your one smile. This world and all that is in it has been decorated just for You. You are the sole purpose for the whole of creation.

Ya Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, your one look of affection is enough for my whole life. Ya Habib Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, we do not have the words to justify your magnificence. This is the reason why we are silent. Whenever somebody called out to you Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, You never turned him away.

Ya Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam hear our call now as well! We desired but were unable to do. Our last wish is that we come walking on our heads and sacrifice our lives for you Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam!’

May Allah the almighty grant us the true, authentic and sincere love of Rasul Allah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam! Ameen Ya Rabb.
