Important Note

The above blessed Hadees included in Bukhari mentions one’s father, offspring and all people. In fact, one’s own being is also included in it. Therefore, this Hadees does not mean that one should only have devotion to the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰہُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم more than his father and offspring but should hold himself dearer than the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰہُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. If so happens, he will not have perfection in his faith. It is stated in a blessed Hadees that Sayyiduna ‘Umar رَضِىَ اللّٰہُ عَنْهُ humbly said to the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰہُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, ‘Except for my life, I hold you dearer than anything else.’ The Greatest and Noblest Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰہُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم said, ‘(Faith will not be perfect) unless I become the dearest to you.’ Sayyiduna ‘Umar رَضِىَ اللّٰہُ عَنْهُ respectfully said, ‘Your Eminence! You have become

There were two brothers, Asad and Adil. Asad’s elder brother Adil was rude and short-tempered. One day when Asad entered his brother’s room, Adil, while rebuking said to him: ‘Asad! Who did you ask permission to enter my room? Asad hesitantly replied! ‘Brother…I…I..’ Upon this, Adil reacted angrily and warned:  Shut up! Get lost and if you enter my room next time without my permission….! Asad started weeping after receiving the rebukes from his brother and went to his mother to inform her about the unfair attitude of Adil. She was already

Here is a holy reason for the revelation of this verse. When a beloved son of the Holy Prophet صلّی اللّٰہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلّم passed away, disbelievers like Abu Lahab, ‘Uqbah Bin Mu’eet, ‘Aas Bin Waa`il, etc. began to say hurtful words. Someone said, ‘The root of Muhammad (صلّی اللّٰہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلّم) has been cut off.’ Someone said, ‘Don’t mention Muhammad (صلّی اللّٰہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلّم). He is the sort of person whose root has been cut off. He does not have any male child. When he passes away, his name will be wiped off the face of the earth.’ Responding to these disbelievers and comforting His Beloved Prophet صلّی اللّٰہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلّم, Almighty Allah revealed this Surah. It is as if Allah Almighty said, ‘O Beloved! Do not get grieved at what these people say.

Dear Islamic brothers! The above narrations show that the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰہُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم often smiled, comforting and solacing the grief-stricken, the helpless and the miserable ones. Those crying and shedding tears derived pleasure from his smile, forgetting their grief and sorrow. Therefore, we should also get into the habit of smiling from time to time on appropriate occasions with the intention of acting upon the Sunnah. Not only will we get comfort but will also gain reward if we smile with the intention of acting upon Sunnah.
