In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful…
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
I want to share this beautiful hadith with you on this beautiful Friday!
“On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
If Allah has loved a servant [of His] He calls Gabriel (on whom be peace) and says: I love So-and-so, therefore love him. He (the Prophet peace be upon him) said: So Gabriel loves him. Then he (Gabriel) calls out in heaven, saying: Allah loves So-and-so, therefore love him. And the inhabitants of heaven love him. He (the Prophet peace be upon him) said: Then acceptance is established for him on earth. And if Allah has abhorred a servant [of His], He calls Gabriel and says: I abhor So-and-so, therefore abhor him. So Gabriel abhors him. Then Gabriel calls out to the inhabitants of heaven: Allah abhors So-and-so, therefore abhor him. He (the Prophet peace be upon him) said: So they abhor him, and abhorrence is established for him on earth. “
Subhan’Allah! Everything our beloved Messenger (PBUH) said is 100% true and don’t have to believe it.
Allah says in the Quran:
By the star when it sets!
Your companion has not strayed; he is not deluded;
he does not speak from his own desire.
It is nothing less than a inspiration that is inspired to him
It was taught to him by one with mighty powers,
Instead of sucking up to the whole world and trying to get them to accept us, why don’t we just focus on pleasing our Creator and getting His acceptance? We will take care of the res.
May Allah guide us all in our love ones to the straight path!
