LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 1
Prophet ﷺ said, “Don’t worry, you will be with the one you love,” and the Sahabah (r), Sayyidina Abu Bakr (r) and Sayyidina Ali (a) said, “Ya Rasulullah! Never we heard something that we like as much as today.” This is so simple. When Allah ﷻ loved the Prophet ﷺ, what did He do? He made all his angels make salawaat on the Prophet ﷺ and He did not order his angels to make salawaat on other prophets, so we can lean our backs on that love! .

LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 2 .
What did Muhammad al-Busayri (q) say in Burdat ash-Sharifah? "He is the Beloved One whose Intercession is sought." He was able to see the Prophet ﷺ with his eyes; don’t think Prophet cannot be seen! He is hadhir wa nadhir, present and seeing! When you call on him, he is present! If you say, "Ya Sayyidi, ya Rasulullah,” he will answer you, he is not dead! We can even see him from here if we are granted that! . Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani . 7 November 2014 Courtesy of Sufilive.com
LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 3 .
According to Ahlu ’s-Sunnah wa ’l-Jama`ah, Prophet ﷺ said: نا حيٌ طري في قبري I am alive and supple in my grave. Also: حياتي خير لكم تحدثون ويحدث لكم ، فإذا أنا مت كانت وفاتي خيرا لكم ، تعرض علي أعمالكم فان رأيت خيرا حمدت الله تعالى وإن رأيت شرا استغفرت لكم I observe the `amal of my ummah. If I find good I thank Allah, and if I see other than that, bad, I ask forgiveness for them. (al-Bazzaar in his Musnad) . We love Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in our hearts and we want to devote our lives to him! Every Muslim likes to do that and the Sahaba (r) did that! So we hope Allah ﷻ will dress us with the real dress of love to the Prophet ﷺ and there is no other love in dunya except that one. .

LOVE OF PROPHET ﷺ, PART 4 .
We love the Prophet ﷺ and we like to praise him as much as we can! Because of that we have been accused of what they say, “Too much praising of the Prophet ﷺ is shirk.” No, it is not shirk! Allah ﷻ ordered all angels to make salawat on the Prophet ﷺ and they are far greater in number than human beings. إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا Verily, Allah and His angels send praise on the Prophet. O Believers! Pray upon him and greet him with a worthy salutation. (Surat al-'Ahzab, 33:56) Allah ﷻ is giving His Mercy to the Prophet ﷺ, who said in a Holy Hadith: من صلى علي مرة صلى الله عليه بها عشرا Whoever prays on me one time, Allah prays on him ten times.
