Hadith Explanation

Obligation of Love

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said to Muadh (radi Allahu anhu): “By Allah, I love you, so do not forget to say at the end of every Salah, ‘O Allah, help me to remember You and to give thanks to You and to worship You well.’” [Ahmed, Tirmidhi]

Thus, we see that it is one of the obligations of love that we teach our beloved people to love Allah, remember Allah, thank Allah and worship Allah (subhana wa ta’ala). And as clarified in other ahadith, one’s love of Allah is manifested by obedience to His commands.

Salmaan Al-Farsi narrated: “There was a man who was given many of the luxuries of this world, and then they were taken away from him. But he continued to praise and thank Allah until everything had been taken from him, even his bed. And then he still praised and thanked Allah. Another man, who had also been given many of the luxuries of this world asked him, ‘What are you praising and thanking Allah for?’ The man said, ‘I am praising and thanking Him for blessings which, if others asked me to give them to them in return for all that they have, I would never give them up.’ ‘What can they be?’ asked the second man. ‘Can’t you see?’ asked the first man. ‘I have my eyesight, my tongue, my hands, my feet…’” [Uddat as-Sabirin wa Dhakhirat ash-Shakirin, by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah]
