The Prophet’s ﷺ Love & Concern for his Ummah
Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on Friday 15th December 2017 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)
Every prophet has been sent like a father to their nation in order to guide them towards Allah. Their care and concern for their ummah comes from a place of love and responsibility rather than that of authority. Many of these examples have been brought in the Quran, showing the words used by these messengers despite the responses of their people.
The Prophet’s ﷺ compassion for his ummah exceeded that of the previous messengers. He wished for everyone to believe and attain success in the hereafter, which is why he did not waste any opportunity to speak to people and call them towards Allah. Despite the hardships faced by the Prophet ﷺ he continued to pray for those who were misguided and showed compassion even to his enemies.
This talk concludes by demonstrating the compassion that the Prophet ﷺ will show in the akhirah and how his intercession will be accepted by Allah. The least of our responsibilities is that we send salutations to him out of respect for his sacrifices and concern for his ummah.
