On Loving the Prophet
From The Holy Quran and the Hadith


On Loving the Prophet ﷺ

{ Say: If it be that your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your mates, or your kindred; the wealth that ye have gained; the commerce in which ye fear a decline: or the dwellings in which ye delight - are dearer to you than Allah, or His Messenger, or the striving in His cause;- then wait until Allah brings about His decision: and Allah guides not the rebellious. }

Holy Quran, Sura (9) verse 24

Anas reported that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:
"None of you will believe until I am more beloved to him than his children, his farther and all people." (Muslim, Al-Bukhari and an-Nasa'i)


On Opposing the Prophet ﷺ

{ And whoever acts hostilely* (yushāqiq ) to the Apostle after that guidance has become manifest to him, and follows other than the way of the believers, We will turn him to that** to which he has (himself) turned and make him enter hell; and it is an evil resort. }

{ If anyone contends with* (contradicts and opposes) the Messenger even after guidance has been plainly conveyed to him ... }

Holy Quran, Sura (4) verse 115

*Ibn Kathir: Whoever intentionally takes a path other than the path of Law revealed to the Messenger.

**Ibn Kathir: When one goes on this wicked path, We will punish him by making the evil path appear good in his heart, and will beautify it for him so that he is tempted further.

Anas related that the Prophet ﷺ said:
"Anyone who dislikes my sunna is not of me." (Muslim and Al-Bukhari)
