Islamic Concepts and Beliefs The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa)

The Light and Blessings of the Holy Prophet (sa)


Hence, on various instances, wherever the humility and humbleness of the Holy Prophet (sa) may be seen to reach the heights of perfection, it appears that he was supported and illumined by the succour and light of the Holy Spirit in equal degree. The state of the deeds and actions of our Noble Prophet (sa) clearly demonstrate this. In fact, the sphere of his light and blessings is so vast that his manifestation and reflection can be observed to extend into all eternity. As such, all the bounty and grace of God Almighty that is being sent down in this day and age is received through obedience and subservience to none other than the Holy Prophet (sa). I truthfully say and proclaim on the basis of my own experience that no one can perform true virtue, attain the pleasure of God Almighty, and be fortunate enough to receive the divine favours, blessings, insights, verities and visions, that are bestowed upon one who purifies their soul to the highest degree, until they are lost in subservience to the Messenger of Allah (sa). Evidence of this is found from the word of God Almighty Himself:

قُلۡ إِن كُنتُمۡ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحۡبِبۡكُمُ ٱللَّهُ[1]1

‘Say, “If you love Allah, follow me: then will Allah love you.”’

I am a practical and living proof of this claim by God Almighty. Recognise me in light of the hallmarks that represent the saints and beloved of God Almighty as established by the Holy Qur’an. Hence, the Noble Prophet (sa) possessed such perfect morals that even if an old lady took hold of his hand, the Holy Prophet (sa) would remain there listening to her attentively; and until she would leave him, he would not leave her.[2]
