The Reliable Road of Loving Allah and Loving the Messenger

Hazrat Hakeem ul Ummah Mujaddid ul Millah, Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanwi (RA) has said, “The only reliable method of loving Allah and loving the Messenger is that which is acquired through the Sunnah.” If this love is acquired in a method contrary to the Sunnah, either through drums or music etc, then this love and longing is not reliable. Allah has told His Beloved Messenger to proclaim the following,

قل ان كنتم تحبون الله فاتبعوني ‘If you claim to love Allah, then follow (obey) me,”

يحببكم الله” “Then Allah will love you.”

Hazrat Mawlana Fadhl ur Rahman Ganj Muradabadi would express it in the following manner, “Allah has announced through His Beloved Messenger that if you want to become the beloved of Allah, then walk my walk. Our Beloved Prophet is so lovely that whoever walks his walk will also become beloved to me.” Examine the love of this world like that of father and son. If a father sees a child in the neighborhood who resembles his own child, then the father also becomes beloved to Allah also. What is our situation today? We have forsaken the Sunnah and yet make claims of loving the Prophet! The Sahabah who toed the line in following the Prophet and who had been given the certificate of Allah’s pleasure, their road is the only reliable road. From this we can understand that the claim of love contrary to the method of the Sahabah is unreliable and unauthentic.

مستند رستے وہی مانے گئے

جن سے ہو کر تیرے دیوانے گئے

Only those paths have been accepted as authentic

Upon which your lovers have tread.

‘Ishq-e- Rasool Ka Saheeh Mafhoom
