How can I be with the Messenger ﷺ ? By Shaykh Habib Ali al-Jifri (may Allah preserve him and benefit us by him)

1137

‘Allah points the believers to a great and noble matter: the honour of being with our Master Muhammad ﷺ.

Allah says: “Those who obey Allah and the Messenger are with those that Allah has favoured – of the Prophets, the people of immense truthfulness, the martyrs and the pious. They are the best of company!”

“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him…”

“The Day that Allah will not permit the Prophet and those who believe with him to be humiliated. Their Light will run forward before them and by their right hands…”

How can someone be with the Prophet?

  • By loving him

Our Master ﷺ said: “A man is with the one he loves.”

  • By bestowing abundant prayers upon him

He said: “The closest of people to me on the Day of Judgement will be those that bestow most prayers upon me.”

  • By showing beautiful character

Our Master ﷺ said (May Allah make us among those people he was referring to): “The closest of you to me on the Day of Judgement will be those of you most beautiful in character – those who are approachable and who easily get along with others and whom others easily get along with.”

  • By following him and showing obedience to him

Allah says: “Those who obey Allah and the Messenger are with those that Allah has favoured – of the Prophets, the people of immense truthfulness, the martyrs and the pious. They are the best of company!”

  • By looking after orphans

He said ﷺ: “I and the one that takes care of an orphan will be like these two in paradise.” [he said ‘these two’ while joining his forefinger and middle finger].

O Allah, grant us the honour of being with him, purely through Your bounty and enabling grace, O Generous, O Loving One, O Bestower!’

When the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was born…

5330

The mother of Abd ar-Rahman ibn al-Awf {May Allah be pleased with them} said:

When the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ {was born and} dropped into my hands, he ﷺ sneezed and I heard a voice saying: May Allah have mercy upon you!’ Then the entire horizon from the east to the west became illuminated for me whereby I was able to see the castles of the Romans.

The Birth of Prophet ﷺ

55275

When the beloved Prophet ﷺ was born a radiant light accompanied him and he lifted his head towards the heavens and the mother of ‘Uthman bin Abi al-Aas witnessed stars lowering themselves and a light so bright appeared that she could see nothing other than light.
