First Pillar of Islam – Part III

First Pillar of Islam – Part III

Second part of the testimony is, that, Muhammad (peace be upon Him) is Messenger of GOD. In the dignities of inventions, this dusty body, which is called a social animal, is a perfect person, a perfect mankind and an independent itself. Muhammad, Messenger of Allah (peace be upon Him) is the most perfect eminent and complete appearance of ALMIGHTY. Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) is the real Caliph of GOD on the earth.

Muhammad (peace be upon Him) said: First of all, The CREATOR created my Light, from my Light, He created the entire universe. Islamic scholars, saints and connected people (may ALLAH have Mercy on them) are assistants and caliphs of Messenger (Peace be upon Him). It is revealed in Holy Quran: Say! If you love GOD, be loyal to me, GOD will love you. We knew from it that the person, who follows the Messenger (Peace be upon Him), is bestowed with the rank of God’s beloved, which is the highest place.

Perfect love with Messenger (peace be upon Him) is the basic condition for perfect Belief. Love will be perfect when the love with Holy Messenger (Peace be upon Him) is more than the love with one’s parents, wives, children, wealth and property. So, that individual, who claims love with GOD without the love with Holy Prophet (Peace be upon Him), is a liar and is rejected in the court of Allah Almighty.

It is said that a person requested Messenger (Peace be upon Him), O Messenger (Peace be upon Him) of GOD! When shall I be a true and pure orthodox? He was replied: Whenever you will love GOD. He requested again, when my love will be with GOD? He was replied: when you will love HIS Messenger (Peace be upon Him). Then he requested again: When my love will be with Messenger (Peace be upon Him)? He was replied: When you will follow the Footprints of Messenger (Peace be upon Him), you will love them who love the Messenger (Peace be upon Him), you will put malice against them who put malice against the Messenger (Peace be upon Him). If you love someone, have love for the sake of Messenger (Peace be upon Him) and if you have enmity with anyone, have enmity for the sake of Messenger (Peace be upon Him).

Then Messenger (Peace be upon Him) said, “Faith of people is not equal. Moreover, as much anyone loves Me (Peace be upon Him), his faith will be so strong. Like this the infidelity of the people is not equal. As much someone has malice against Me (Peace be upon Him), his infidelity will be so strong. Be cautious! Who has not my love in his heart, is not Believer, who has not my love in his heart, is not Believer, who has not my love in his heart, is not Believer.

Khawaaja Baa Yaziid Bustaamii (may ALLAH have mercy on him) said: Perfect rank of common believers is the basic rank of the pious, perfect rank of the pious is the basic rank of martyrs, perfect rank of martyrs is the basic rank of faithful, perfect rank of faithful is the basic rank of prophets, perfect rank of prophet is the basic rank of Messengers, perfect rank of Messengers is basic rank of Muhammad (Peace be upon Him). And nobody knows the rank of Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) but ALLAH.

Obtaining favor of GOD is impossible without sake and support. That sake and support is kindness of the Messenger (Peace be upon Him). For this purpose GOD commands us in the Holy Qur’an: Without any doubt, GOD and HIS Angels send Blessings upon the Messenger. O! Believers! You should also send the Blessings upon Him (Peace be upon Him).

‘Abii bin Ka`b (may GOD be agreed upon him) requested Messenger: O Messenger (Peace be upon Him)! I want to send Blessings upon you, how much should I send”? He was replied, “as much as you can” He asked again, “should I offer Blessings from the 1/4th time of worship and prayer”? He was then replied, “as much as you can, however if you can do more than it, it will be better for you”. He requested again: If it is better, then why should not I send Blessings on you from half of the remaining time of worship and prayer? Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) said: Your will, if you do more than it, it will be better for you. He requested once again: 2/3rd time can I send? Messenger (Peace be upon Him) commanded: Your pleasure, if you do even more than it, it will be better for you. He requested: O my Chief! Can I send Blessings upon you whole the time instead of worship? Listening to this, the Merciful over the worlds Messenger (Peace be upon Him) said: If you do so, your all acts will be corrected automatically and your all sins will be forgiven”. (Tirmzi, Mishka`t)

Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon Him) says: O people! Without any doubt, that person out of you will be released from the fear of Hereafter and difficult paths on Doomsday, who sent much Blessings upon Me (Peace be upon Him) in this world. On the Day of Resurrection; some parties will come on my Pond. I shall recognize them due to their sending much Blessings upon Me (Peace be upon Him). Commit your mind to that time, when the sun will be entirely near, the earth will be so hot like burning coal, there will be NO space to hide for anyone, no water to drink. Then, Messenger (Peace be upon Him) will give water to His followers from the pond of paradise. That lucky person, who sends much Blessings upon the Messenger (Peace be upon Him), will succeed in obtaining a draught of water. The Heat of Doomsday will not harm him.
