THE GREATEST GIFT OF LOVE

The best example of love is usually seen when a person wishes the best for the one he loves. For example, a father will always want the best for his son; a good education, job, family, life in general.

In the same fashion (to make one understand without any examples), Allah has taught mankind the nature by which it can find peace from within and with others around. Confusion more often than not leads to undesirable results, not knowing the right from the wrong, the good from the evil. This is why on countless occasions Allah seeks to guide a being in this life, to show him the right from the wrong; to establish a correct moral compass by which everyone can lead a prosperous life. In sura Ikhlas Allah informs mankind he is Ahad, the one; a being that has no equal, and the sole sustainer of the entire creation. If man was left to its own devices it would never have known the correct way to recognize Allah and draw near to him. This is why by establishing this fact he is Ahad, the one, Allah is telling humanity in order to find peace and happiness it must leave aside the multitude of idols from within it, the attractions and addictions of dunya, and only have Allah as the central being of dedication and servitude. Not the dunya, people, life, Satan or the ego.

Further on Allah also says he is As –Samad, the being who wants to give without any need or want of anything from creation. All the worship a servant does is for his benefit and not Allah, like eating food only benefits the being who eats worship also benefits the one who does.
With this in mind, Allah has given something to humanity, especially the believers, which is the most precious gift out all the limitless treasures of Allah. This is the coming of the prophet (sallahu alihi wasallam), he chose the prophet (sallahu alihi wasallam) for the believers and sent him in the month of Rabiul Awwal. Sometimes when a blessing is at hand it cannot be fully appreciated when its readily available. This is why it is difficult for most believers, at times, to appreciate the value of this particular point. However, those who lead a life of darkness and then see the example of a true human being and how one should be, have unequivocally accepted the sublime character of this being (sallahu alihi wasallam). The question is then have the believers accepted the gift of Allah, the prophet (sallahu alihi wasallam) or reject it by throwing it back?

It is one thing to have belief in the final messenger (sallahu alihi wasallam) but another thing when it comes to action. Many have rejected the prophet (sallahu alihi wasallam) when it come to this aspect, leading life completely contrary to his way. It is him (sallahu alihi wasallam) who will be the one to reassure people on the day when every concern will disappear save only how to get Allah’s forgiveness.
He (sallahu alihi wasallam) has mentioned that on the day of judgement there will be three places where people can find him should they seek to:

1) The plain of mizan (scales)
2) the spring of Kawthar
3) At the bridge of seerat; these places are where people will be in dire need of support and help. The prophet (sallahu alihi wasallam) will be restless to see all his followers enter paradise on the day of judgement and going back and forth.

In short, The love of the prophet (sallahu alihi wasallam) and Allah extends beyond this world and into the next. One must learn to reciprocate this in the correct way. Unfortunately, many unrestricted and undisciplined things occur during the Mawlid celebrations in Rabiul Awwal that end up only being a source of entertainment and satisfaction for the egocentric individual. Missing prayers, men and women walking the streets with loud speakers, announcing the Mawlid.
When a person will become the inheritors of the prophetic tradition there will be no need for mics or speakers to let people know about the prophet (sallahu alihi wasallam). But everyday will turn out to be a speaker phone, a mic, announcing to others this is the prophetic character and his tradition. It will automatically be the salutations of the prophet (sallahu alihi wasallam) in living form, every day, night and moment.
