BASIS OF OUR AFFILIATION WITH

PROPHET (SAW)
Significance of the Topic:
“One, who gave up my Sunnah deliberately, is not affiliated to me.”
The existing state of our affiliation:



Basis of affiliation with Prophet (saw) vis-à-vis Qur’aan:
“So those who believe in him (Muhammad [saw]), honor him,
help him and follow the light (Qur’an), which has been sent
down with him, it is they who will be successful.”
1ST BASIS: ‘TO BELIEVE IN PROPHET (SAW)’


Two grades of Belief:



Do we have real belief?
“None of you can be a true believer, unless all his personal desires
are not complying to the guidance, I have brought.”
2ND BASIS: TO HONOR PROPHET (SAW)

“O you who believe! do not raise your voices above the voice
of the Prophet (saw), and do not speak loud to him in talk as
you speak loud to one another, lest your deeds become null and
you do not perceive.”
Imagine! All good deeds can go waste by raising voices over the voice
of Prophet (saw), Realize! What would be the result of his (saw)
disobedience?


1st component of Ittebaa: Obedience of Prophet (saw)

“Whoever obeys the Messenger (saw), he indeed obeys Allah.”
2nd component of ‘Ittebaa’: Love for Prophet (saw)
“None of you can be a real believer, unless I become dearest to
him even more than his parents, children and all the people.”
Importance of ‘Ittebaa’ in Qur’aan:
“O Prophet! Tell them ‘If you love Allah? Obey and love
me’ Allah will love you and forgive your sins.”
Our situation:



“Allah (swt) did not send any Prophet before me for an Ummah, but,
he used to have some apostles and companions they would exactly
follow his ways and orders. Later on, people who succeed them do not
act upon what they say and only act upon something what never is
ordained. So whosoever will strive against them with his hands will be
counted as a true believer, whosoever will strive against them with his
tongue will be regarded as believer and whosoever will strive against
them with his heart will be regarded as believer. After that not an iota
of Iman worth consideration.”
3RD BASIS: TO HELP PROPHET (SAW)
How to help the Prophet (saw)?
call towards way of Allah
“O Prophet! Tell them, this is my way, I call to Allah”
establish Allah’s Deen
“He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad [saw]) with
guidance and the Deen of truth (Just system) to dominate it over all
(other) systems.”

“I am commanded to establish a just order between you.”


Arena of helping the Prophet (SAW):
Calling towards way of Allah: “You are the best of peoples ever
raised up for mankind, you enjoin what is right and forbid the wrong
and believe in Allah.”
Establishment of Allah (swt’s) Deen:
“O you who belief! Standup firmly for justice.”


4TH BASIS:
FOLLOWING THE HOLY QUR’AAN

After the Holy Prophet his locum tenens is Qur’aan


• At Hujjat ul Wida he (saw) said: “I am leaving among you
something (Qur’aan), as long as you remain committed to it, you
will not be ruined or go astray.”
Meaning of following the Qur’aan:
“O people of the Qur’an! Do not make the Qur’an a
pillow (a resting refuge and that you put it behind your
back), recite it day and night in the way it should be
recited, propagate it, read it with pleasing harmonic
voice, ponder over its meaning so that you may prosper.”
