Classic Example of Love for the Prophet from sahabas

Post by Imran on Thu 03 Mar 2016, 7:46 pm

In the seerah of the Prophet a.s., one of the
finest chapter is the one is during the treaty at
Hudaibiya. It explains how much his
companions loved him. A beautiful example
from the seerah as observed by Urwah who
represented the Quraish to bargain a chip of
favoritism as he was highly reputed leader if
Tail. Note a display of love by Mughirah ibn
Shubah during the conversation and the
impact it had on the morale of Quraish and
the future of Arabia.
Urwah ibn Masud, was sent out to assess the
situation. He tried to demoralise the Prophet,
by giving him the news of the Quraysh's unity:
"O Muhammad! You have gathered all these
people and have come back to your birthplace.
The Quraysh have come out and pledged to
God that you would not enter Makkah against
them by force. By God, all these people might
well desert you." Abu Bakr r.a. went up to
Urwah and said with disdain: "We desert him
(Muhammad)? Woe to you." The Companions
disliked even the discussion of deserting the
Messenger. Reason ? Along with honour,
immense love, and mark my words, honour is
one of the best way to declare love towards a
As Urwah was speaking, he touched the
Prophet's beard and Mughirah ibn Shubah
rapped his hand with the handle of his sword
saying, "Take away your hand," and Urwah
retorted: "Woe to you! How crude and coarse
you are." The Prophet smiled. "Who is this
man, O Muhammad?" asked Urwah. "This is
your cousin, Al-Mughirah ibn Shubah." "What
perfidy!" Urwah hissed at Al-Mughirah and
continued to insult him. The Prophet smiled at
the way Mughirah rapped the hand of Urwa..
he acknowledge Mughirah's love and respect
from him.. Radiallahu anhu wa radoo ann...
Urwah then surveyed the companions of the
Prophet. He saw that whenever he gave them
an order, they hastened to carry it out. When
he made ablutions they vied with one another
to help him. When they spoke in his presence,
they lowered their voices, and they did not
look him in the eye out of respect for him.
Back with the Quraysh, Urwah showed that he
was obviously impressed: "By God, O people of
the Quraysh ! I have been to Chosroes in his
kingdom and I have seen Caesar the Byzantine
emperor in the plenitude of his power, but
never have I seen a king among his people like
Muhammad among his companions. I have
seen a people who would not abandon him for
anything. Reconsider your position. He is
presenting you with right guidance. Accept
what he has presented to you. I advise you
sincerely... I fear that you will never gain
victory over him."
It was a display of love that showed the
strenght and firmness of Muslims. A fright in
the heart of enemy without any weapons
displayed.. but just ahumble and crystal clear
love for the Prophet through obedience,
honour and respect in his presence.. Urwah's
report to the Quraysh was a stunning report.
He could not beelive his eyes what he saw.
Love, obedience and respect for a man to such
extent that he could not even touch is beard
out of fondness !
It was the love for the Prophet that united the
Muslims globelly when Satanic Rushdie wrote a
satanic book or the cartoon artist drawing a
cartoon. Today this love is displayed only
during the protest against dishonouring the
Prophet a.s. but it is not seen in our
implementing the shariah..Imagine 145 crore
of Muslims in world in beard or hijab...entire
men in Masjid during all five salah ...Do you
require more efforts than this to display your
love to the man who is number one in being
maligned today? Now is the test of our Love
towards our beloved Prophet sallahualaihi
wassallam....Obey and follow his commands
and you love him thats all...
