Praising the friend is praising the king.

Someone asked:

Why don’t they only praise God upon the minaret? Why do they also mention Mohammed (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him)?

Rumi answered:

Well, praising Mohammed (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) is praising God. It is like saying, Long live the King, and long live that friend who led me to the king, and told me of the King’s Good Names and Attributes! Praising that friend is praising the King.

– Mevlana Rumi rahimahu Llah –
