A Sahaabi’s Love for Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

A Sahaabi’s Love for Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

A Sahaabi once came to Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and asked, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! When is the Day of Qiyaamah?”

Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “What preparations have you made for that day?”

The Sahaabi said, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I do not claim to have much salaah, fasts and sadaqah to my credit, but I do have the love of Allah Ta‘ala and His Messenger (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in my heart.”

Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then said, “(On the day of Qiyaamah,) surely you will be with those whom you love.”[1]

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) says, “Nothing made the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) more happy than these words of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (as they all knew that they possessed true love for Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in their hearts).”[2]
