Student Essay Submission- Why We Should Love Muhammad ﷺ more than Anything in the World
We, as Muslims, should love and respect Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) more than anything else in the world for many reasons. We should love him since it changes us and gives us more faith. We should also love Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) because he guided us in Islam. Lastly, we should love Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) because Allah tells us to.
Muslims, such as ourselves, should love and respect Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) since it gives us more faith. It changes us inside, and makes our hearts more pure. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children, and all of mankind.” If you love Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), then you are very faithful and you have a lot of respect for him. You will also receive many good deeds for the Day of Resurrection.
Another reason we should love and respect Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) is because he has guided us. If it weren’t for Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ), we would not have the complete meaning of Islam, and we would be like a deserted house. It is mentioned in the Quran, in surah 42, verse 52, Allah says, “And verily, you (O Muhammad (ﷺ)) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path.” In Surah 47, Al-Muhammad, verse 5, Allah says, “He will guide them and improve their state.” We are very lucky that Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) was there to guide us and to help us unto the right path.
Finally, we should love Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) since Allah (SWT) commands us to do so. In Surah 3, Al-Imran, verse 32, Allah says, “Say (O Muhammad (ﷺ)): ‘Obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad ﷺ).’ But, if they turn away, Allah does not like the disbelievers.” In Surah 4, An-Nisa, verse 80, Allah states,” He who obeys the Messenger (Muhammad (ﷺ)), has indeed obeyed Allah, but he who turns away, then we have not sent you (O Muhammad (ﷺ)) as a watcher over them.”
In conclusion, we should all be very respectful and love Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) more than anything in the world. He has done so many great things for us. Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) is the last prophet, and he helped complete the religion of peace. In the first Kalimah: There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger, Prophet Muhammad’s (ﷺ) name is placed next to Allah (SWT)’s name! That is such a great position. If Allah (SWT) has positioned him with such great respect, then us, as the Prophet’s (ﷺ) ummah, should truly love and admire Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) as a great leader and hero. We will be awarded with great deeds, and it is worth it. Kids these days believe that the real heroes are singers or famous people that are cool. But a Muslim’s real hero should be Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). We should love and respect Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) more than anything in the world.
