Hadith Explanation

Saved for Me

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Every Prophet has one supplication that is granted to him, and every Prophet hastened to make that supplication (in this world). But I have postponed my supplication in order to intercede for my Ummah on the Day of Resurrection.” [Bukhaari]

Every grief and injury that could touch a person befell the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam). His beloved uncle Abu Talib died in the state of Kufr, his beloved wife Khadeeja who he could never forget died, three of his daughters died in adulthood and his sons died in infancy. Yet he didn’t use his wish to save any of them. He saved that wish for you and me, so that he could save us from the Fire of Hell on the Day of Resurrection. Do I care to be saved from the Fire of Hell?

What have I done for him (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) in return? How much have I loved him in return?

Love demands sacrifice. What have I sacrificed out of love for Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)?

Love extracts a tax: to love those who love the beloved and hate those who hate the beloved. Do I love those who love him and hate those who hate him (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)?

When I love someone their wish is my command and their commands are heavenly decrees. Is my love manifest in my behaviour? Can anyone tell I love my Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam)?
