HIS ESSENTIAL RIGHTS

  • His rights are the most important after the rights of Allah. There is no human who has more rights than him. Allah said: “Verily, we have sent you (Muhammad) as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner in order that you (mankind) may believe in Allah and His Messenger.…” [Al-Fath 48:8-9]
  • Love for him should be more than one’s love for himself, his children, his family, and his worldly possessions. He said: “None of you will reach belief till I become dearer to him than his children, parents and all humans.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
  • Respect him by adherence to his Sunnah. The way to venerate him is to obey him, do as he commanded and avoid that which he forbade. “Say (O Muhammad to mankind)” If you love Allah then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Ali Imran 3:31]
  • Believe in him in matters of religion and the past, present and future happenings he told us about.
