The Test Of True Love

In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful and CompassionateThe Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “None of you truly believes until I am more beloved by him than his parents, his children, and all of mankind.” (Bukhari)

Imam Ibn Hajar al-`Asqalani (Allah have mercy on him) explained that a test of this love is one’s readiness to give up everything that one desires for the opportunity to merely set one’s gaze on the blessed person of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). (Ibn Hajar al-`Asqalani, Fath al-Bari, Riyadh: Dar al-Salam, 1.83)

If you had an either-or choice, what would you choose: the entirety of your worldly attachments–the house, the bank account, the family, and everything else–or the option of being able to see the blessed Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace)?

Subhana Allah great test for us all who say we love Allah and his Messenger (sall Allahu alaihi wa sallam)

Here’s also a link to the virtues of Sahaba and we can see in these ahadith Allah’s divine concern for them
