The Beloveds of Allah
Muhammad Jawaid Attari Madani
The final Prophet of Allah, our master Muhammad صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم , said that Allah states:
مَنْ عَادَ لِيْ وَلِیًّا فَقَدْ اٰذَنْتُہ بِالْحَرْبِ
“I will declare war against the person who shows hostility to a saintly friend (walī) of Mine.”
A walī is a saintly friend of Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty dislikes the one who has enmity and hatred towards His friends. Visiting the saints and pious people, sitting in their company, and loving them will benefit you in this world and the Hereafter. Sayyidunā Makḥūl al-Dimashqī رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَلَيْه said, “Allah Almighty loves the one who has love for His friends.”
May Allah Almighty fill our inner with love and our outer with respect for His friends.
اٰمِیْن بِجَاہِ خاتَمِ النَّبِیّیْن صلَّی اللہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم
