Loving the Prophet’s Family – A demand of faith

Loving the Prophet’s Family – A demand of faith

 

There is a Hadith in Jame’ Tirmidhi:

 

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas (May Allah be well pleased with them), he says:  The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  Love Allah because He blessed you with His bounties.  For the love of Allah, love me and for my love, love my family.  (Jame’ Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 3722)

 

The grace and benevolence of Allah Most High demands that we should love Him.  To be able to love Allah Most High, we should love the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and to be able to love the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), the Family of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) should be loved.

 

It is as if the love of the Prophet’s Family is a step towards the love of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).  If anybody desires proximity and closeness of Allah Most High and wants to be enter His presence, the only way for this is to love the Prophet's Family.  This love will grant closeness to the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and through the proximity of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), that person will attain proximity of Allah.

 

There is a Hadith in Sunan Ibn Majah and Jame Tirmidhi.

 

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: By Him who holds my life in His hands, faith cannot even enter the heart of the person, who does not love you (The Prophet’s Family) for the sake of Allah Most High and their relationship with me.  (Jame’ Tirmidhi, 3691; Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith No. 137)

 

There is a Hadith in Mo’jam Kabeer Tabarani and Baihaqui:

 

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abdur Rahmaan bin Abu Laila (May Allah be well pleased with him) who narrates on the authority of his father that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: No one can be a true believer unless I am more beloved to him (or her) than his own life, my Family is more beloved than his own family and my progeny become more beloved than his own progeny and I become more beloved to him that his own self.  (Mo’jam Kabeer Tabarani, Hadith No. 5952; Shua’bul Iman, Hadith No. 1505)

 

Faith (Iman) is the most basic condition for all rules and all forms of worship, without which all that one has done will be rendered waste and the aforementioned Hadith obviates that love for the Prophet’s Family is a condition for faith and if their love is not present in one’s heart, then one’s very faith is flawed.
