*FEAR THE GOD OF MUHAMMAD S.A.W.*Muslims love most Allah Ta`ala, their unique and sublime God. The creator of beauty, humans, day, night, time, the universe and the most subtle feeling of the heart: love.
وَالَّذِينَآمَنُواأَشَدُّحُبًّالِلَّهِ [البقرة : 165]‘’Muslims are most firm in their love for Allah’’(2:165)After Allah Ta`ala, our allegiance and more attachment goes to the beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. More love to him than our parents, wives, children, friends and teachers:
قُلْ إِنْ كَانَ آبَاؤُكُمْ وَأَبْنَاؤُكُمْ وَإِخْوَانُكُمْ وَأَزْوَاجُكُمْ وَعَشِيرَتُكُمْ وَأَمْوَالٌ اقْتَرَفْتُمُوهَا وَتِجَارَةٌ تَخْشَوْنَ كَسَادَهَا وَمَسَاكِنُ تَرْضَوْنَهَا أَحَبَّ إِلَيْكُمْ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَجِهَادٍ فِي سَبِيلِهِ فَتَرَبَّصُوا حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ اللَّهُ بِأَمْرِهِ وَاللَّهُ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْفَاسِقِينَ [التوبة : 24] صحيح البخاري – )حدثنا أبو الزناد عن الأعرج عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال فوالذي نفسي بيده لا يؤمن أحدكم حتى أكون أحب إليه من والده وولدهRasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam said: ‘’By the One who holds my soul, no one of you will have complete faith unless he loves me more than his father and his children.’’(Bukhari)The justice words of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq r.a. after the demise of the most beautiful, the most pious, the most respected and the most beloved man ever walked on earth truely and rightly named ‘’Muhammad’’(the praised one): ‘’After all praises to Allah. Those amongst you who were worshiping Muhammad-Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam-, then know that he has died. And those amongst you who were worshiping Allah Ta`ala, then know that he is alive, ever living and will never die.’’(Bukhari)These words were so accepted that the same words were announced by the Ka`bah.صحيح البخاري -فقال أما بعد فمن كان منكم يعبد محمدا صلى الله عليه وسلم فإن محمدا صلى الله عليه وسلم قد مات ومن كان يعبد الله فإن الله حي لا يموتMuslims don`t worship Hazrat Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. But rather we worship Allah on the instructed way indicated by the beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. We stand in the direction, we bow in resemblance and we say whatever the prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam told us. Because Allah Ta`ala Himself told us to follow the prophet carefully to achieve divine pleasure.(3:31)
قُلْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيم [آل عمران : 31]وَإِنْ تُطِيعُوهُ تَهْتَدُوا وَمَا عَلَى الرَّسُولِ إِلَّا الْبَلَاغُ الْمُبِينُ [النور : 54]
This is the justice of Islam. God is above all else. Then the most high in creation is the prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. Then after him is most likely prophet Ibraheem a.s.Well, it is not the first time that non muslims wished to harm the stature of prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. During his prophethood, the beloved prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam sent letters of invitation of Islam to different kings and chiefs. So he sent also to Khosrow II, the king of Iran. Being the king of an empire, lately invaded many territories, proud on his throne, he was annoyed by the invitation. So he sent 2 delegates to arrest Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam and bring him to Iran for trial.
الإصابة في معرفة الصحابة – ابن حجر – (فخرجا حتى قدما الطائف فوجدا رجالا من قريش تجارا فسألوهم عنه فقالوا هو بيثرب واستبشروا فقالوا: قد نصب له كسرى كفيتم الرجل.فخرجا حتى قدما المدينة فكلمه أبا نوه فقال أن كسرى كتب إلى باذان أن يبعث إليك من يأتيه بك وقد بعثني لتنطلق معي فقال: ارجعا حتى تأتياني غداً.فلما غدوا عليه أخبرهما رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بأن الله قتل كسرى وسلط عليه ابنه شيرويه في ليلة كذا من شهر كذا
Reported in Seerah ibn Katheer, Ibn Jowzi and others that when they came to Madinah Munawarah, they talked to the phophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam about their mission of arresting him for trial in Iran. Well, the beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam first disapproved their shaving of beards then told them to give him one night time. That they should come tomorrow morning. On the next morning, the beloved prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam announced them that Kavad II has killed his father Khosrow II and that the warrant has been null and void. First they could not believe. But the news brought by revelation came true to them when the news spread across Arabia.One night Babe, one night. One night suffice to finish up a whole empire on the simple du`as of the prophet Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. Mowlana Ibrahim Devla d.b. encouraged us to go for one year in jamaat, give sacrifice and then will come a time that one night du`as will suffice to open closed doors. May Allah Ta`ala bless him and give him long life. Ameen. Through his encouragement, many ulamas came for 40 days and then extended to 1 year. So he was quoting this hadith that Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam asked for 1 night time. So during that night, Rasouloullah Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam ask Allah Ta`ala to save him and protect him and answer for him. Fear the God of Muhammad Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam! Because He is severe against those who want to blaspheme the prophet Swalallahou `Alaihi Wasallam. The history of man has changed, kings has become popper, lands has been swept and new world orders were ruled for ten of centuries.The difference of the du`as of Makkah that took several years to be achieved and this 1 night du`as is the accumulation of sacrifice. Allah Ta`ala is waiting for the ummah to contribute their sacrifices for the deen of Allah so that He will retort the enemies upon our request. But since the ummah is engrossed in dunya activities and has left going in the path of Allah, then they are playing with us just like cats toss the rat.Let`s start putting more time, more effort, more travelling for the upliftment of deen so that we may reach the required level to change the world in 1 night.
سنن ابن ماجه – ()عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ ابْنِ الْحَنَفِيَّةِ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ عَلِيٍّ قَالَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْمَهْدِيُّ مِنَّا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ يُصْلِحُهُ اللَّهُ فِي لَيْلَةٍ
Reported in Ibn Majah that Allah Ta`ala will change the decor of deen completely for Hazrat Mahdi r.a. in only one night-Ibn Majah. Because Allah Ta`ala is alive, ever living but only waiting for 51% of the ummah to reach the required level of imaan, salaah and sacrifices. So start to be punctual with the 5 daily salaah to enhance our tahajjud weeping du’as.
