Our Duty to the Prophet ﷺ
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 30th November 2018 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
Our lives are filled with relationships between various people. Many of these relationships require reciprocal behaviour for them to be long lasting and successful. Allah shares a relationship with his creation, where He promises to provide and care for them in return that they worship Him alone. Our relationship with the Prophet ﷺ should also be a reciprocal one, where he sacrificed and faced hardships so that he may see as many of us as possible enter Paradise.
The Prophet ﷺ fulfilled the duties which Allah had placed upon him. What then are our duties to the Prophet ﷺ? Allah has detailed five important duties in the Quran for us to act upon as followers of the Prophet ﷺ. These are discussed in details; including how we should not only love the Prophet ﷺ but also revere him.
Examples of how the sahabah would behave and revere the Prophet ﷺ are given towards the end of the talk, along with how Allah admonished those who lacked reverence and warned them in the Quran.
