Love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam)


The husband, father and brother of an Ansaari woman were all martyred in the battle of Uhud, wherein they had participated with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). When she was informed about this, she replied, “First tell me how is Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)?” They replied that he is well and alive. She said, “I first need to see him.” When she saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) she remarked: “I can manage any loss after seeing you safe and sound.” (As-Seeratun Nabawiyyah – Ibnu Hishaam, vol. 3, pg. 99)  

Lesson: This was the degree of love that the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) and the Sahaabiyyaat (radhiyallahu anhunna) had for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). It was this sincere love that lead them to follow deen in totality. Our love for Allah Ta‘ala and his Rasul (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) will force us to make every sacrifice in fulfilling their  commands, whether it appeals to our desires or not, and whether it conforms to the norms of our society or not. It will also drive us to encourage our husbands, sons, fathers and brothers to sacrifice their health, wealth and time in the path of Allah Ta‘ala.
