[Sermons Series] Prophet Reminding People of Allah

Prophet’s sermon in which he reminded people of Allah, the Exalted; and called to loving Him and loving each other for His Sake

lbn Ishaq said, “The Messenger of Allah salAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam gave another speech in which he said:

“All thanks is due to Allah, I thank Him and seek His Aid. We seek refuge with Allah from the evils within ourselves and the burden of our evil deeds. He whom Allah guides will never be misled and he whom He misguides will never find one to guide him. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, Alone without partners. Verily, the best speech is the Book of Allah the Exalted. He in whose heart the Qurán is made beautiful and on its account entered Islam after being a disbeliever, who chose the Qurán above the speech of all people, has indeed attained success. The Qurán is the best and most eloquent speech there is. Love those who love Allah, and love Allah from the bottom of your hearts.”

The Prophet meant here that Allah’s love should encompass all parts of the heart, for in this case, one’s actions will start from his heart in sincerity with Allah:

“Do not get bored with Allah’s Speech or remembering Him, nor allow your hearts to grow hard towards it. Worship Allah, associate none with Him in worship and fear Him as He should be feared. Let your tongues say the truth for Allah’s Sake and love each other on guidance of Allah’s love. Verily, Allah becomes angry if His Covenant is broken. May Allah’s peace, blessings and mercy be upon you.”

(Ibn Hisham collected this sermon in his book on the Seerah of the Prophet vol. 1, p. 501 and Ibn Katheer)
