Duty of the Friends of the Holy Household of the Prophet

Duty of the Friends of the Holy Household of the Prophet

1- Creation of affection

Love and friendship with the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them) must be so deep to the extent it over takes and has running root in your soul and in your entire existence so that it will be means of your closeness and nearness to those great men.

His Excellency, the commander of the faithful (peace be upon him) says:

Love and affection is derived from nearness and closeness.[1]

Which means there must be tremendous increase in love so that you become closer and nearer to the beloved one. If love has reached that extent, it is then called affection and cordiality. Base on this affection and cordiality, the increased love will lead and turn to spiritual nearness.

In reality this is the type of love which is expected of us as our responsibility towards the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them). Therefore we must have the love of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad (peace be upon them) so that it will become the means of our nearness and closeness to the holy household of the Prophet (peace be upon them).

Almighty Allah in the holy Qur’an said:

{Say, ’I do not ask you any reward for it except love of [my] relatives}[2]  

Base on this verse, it is incumbent upon us to have such love and connection to the holy infallible household of the Prophet (peace be upon them) which will be the cause of our spiritual and immaterial closeness and nearness to these great men, meanwhile this is regarded as compulsory responsibility to entire human beings.
