Loving Prophet Muhammad (s)
The Holy Qur’an, hadith traditions and narrations of sahabah (companions) are replete with abundant encouragement, advice, proof and indication of the necessity of loving the Prophet Muhammad (s) and suffice to show that this duty is an immensely important obligation. There are immense rewards for having and expressing love for the Prophet,
Anas said that a man came to the Prophet and asked, “When will the Last Hour come, Messenger of Allah?”, “What have you prepared for it?” he asked? He replied, “I have not prepared a lot of prayer or fasting or charity for it, but I love Allah and His Messenger.” The Prophet said, “You will be with the one you love.” (Sahih Bukhari)
During the entire event, me and my friends were enjoying ourselves without feeling tired or sleepy. My favourite moments were performances from Madrasah Aljunied Angklung Ensemble,the Qawali singer, dance item from Azkafa Saman, speech fom Shaykh Hisham Kabani and Spore Haqqani Ensemble. Of course, the best part was FINALE. I will definitely recommend to my friends because to me it was an Islamic concert with international brand of performers, opening our eyes and ears to different languages and cultures but to one’s heart that is love for the Prophet Muhamad SAW.
