“Qul in kuntum tuḥibbūna llaha fa’ittabi’ūnī yuḥbibkumu llahu wa yaghfir lakum” (3:31)
Our Prophet is a good teacher, an instructor for us. He teaches good things to us. He says “If you want Allah to love you, take me as an example. Follow me and do what I do so that Allah loves you”.
Our Prophet (saw) was quite calm and quite merciful and he liked to do everything by himself. He never ordered anyone to do something for him, he did on his own. Even at home sometimes when his clothes were torn, he sewed them himself. He didn’t talk loudly. He didn’t shout.
That’s why, there is a verse in Qur’an “O people, don’t talk louder than our Prophet”. He (awj) was warning the companions not to talk louder than him. Allah Azza wa Jalla gave good tidings to those, who speak in a lower voice than our Prophet that they will attain a great reward. And He described the loud ones as the ignorant ones. If they didn’t shout and were patient, it would be better for them.
The best is to do actions exhibited by our Prophet. If we act like him all our lives, it would be very good. Even if you can’t, you should try. You shouldn’t forget that the love of our Prophet (saw) and the love of Allah (awj) are the same. They go on the same path. You can’t love Allah without loving the Prophet. It’s the same, if you don’t love good people. Awliyaullah are also beloved ones of our Prophet. They also take from our Prophet and show people how he lived. Shouting and yelling, things that these ignorant people do, our Prophet never did. Even when he didn’t like something during the assemblies, he never stood up and shouted. He kept quiet and the sahabas understood that something was wrong. If it was worse, he would stand up and leave the assembly.
Things like this are important. Because people, many people in this time shout as much as they can in order to defend their rights, thinking that it will help, whereas it makes it worse. We should follow the way shown by our Prophet. It will turn out well in dunya and give big reward in the presence of Allah in akhira.
Prophet (saw) was in verses in Qur’an He said: “qul in kuntum tuḥibbūna llaha fa-ittabī’ūni yuḥbibkumu llahu wa yaghfir lakum”. [3:31] “If you love Allah Almighty, you follow me. Allah loves you, and forgives you.”
Prophet (saws) showing us the best behaviour, how to behave. To be loved one in divine presence. Prophet, what he is teaching us? Teaching every politeness. He is very polite, Prophet (saws). Not like what this shaitan people showing. Prophet (saws) he is never, he is the most merciful, most polite one. When he was speaking, he not make his voice high. Not shout at all. Never. He didn’t shout. And who around him, disciples, sahaba, they were also like him. Sometimes, new people coming that they are not knowing, shouting. For this, Allah make also one surah, verses, He said: “O Companions, O Believers, don’t make your voice higher than Prophet’s voice. (49:2)” Who are respecting, and they make their voice less than Prophet’s voice these people, Allah He likes them and He gives them big reward – ‘ajrun ‘adhīm.
And but, who are – there was people they not knowing and they were shouting behind walls, calling Prophet (saws), shouting, and they are – there are, of course there are some people not knowing coming from desert. There some people also, they said for them – these are ignorant people. If these people, they be patient and they are Inna lladhīna yunādūnaka min warā-i lḥujurati aktharuhum la ya’qilūn.(49:4) Walaw annahum ṣabarū hatta takhruja ilayhim lakāna khayran lahum (49:5). These people they are ignorant, they are no mind people. This “la ya’qilūn.” If they be patient to wait till you go to them, it will be better for them.
But also, Allah forgives them and He is Most Merciful and Most Forgive for people, even for these people. But they, these verses to show people how it was in time of Prophet (saws), how it was respected, and people learning. For this, Prophet (saws) saying: “See what I was doing, do like me for Allah to love you.” Because, if you not love Prophet (saws) you cannot love Allah Azza wa Jalla. The way for Allah is through Prophet (saws) and through good people, who are following Prophet (saws), showing us the light, lightness way. Nice way, not bad way.
This is showing how it is important to follow way, tarīqat. Not like people they are saying; if you are following somebody you are mushrik. No, it is… Without this you be like these people, who were shouting for Prophet in so high voice, without respect, without anything. These people, Allah show them they are no mind people. Who following and respect people doing what Prophet (saws) doing and give respect and love for him they will have ‘ajran adhīm’ – huge reward. But people they are really like this ayat. These times people they are, most of them no mind people. Only believing what is wrong. What is right, they are discussing with you. It is open, if you want to be beloved for Allah, you must follow Prophet (saws), you must follow his way.
This is a very short cut for people to know the tarīqat. And awliyaAllah they are following Prophet (saws). No, any mistake from this. Allah make these people to thinking to be in right way.
Wa min Allahi t-tawfīq Al-Fātiha
