Or what Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه) felt when he heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, “Tomorrow, I will definitely hand the banner to a man who loves Allah and His Messenger, and whom Allah and His Messenger also love,” and then he found out that he was the one?

Or Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas (رضي الله عنه)’s feelings when the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said to him, “Throw it, Sa’d, may my parents be ransomed for you.”

Or how Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari (رضي الله عنه) felt when the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “If you could have only seen me while I was listening to your recitation yesterday.”?

And what emotions did the Ansar (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين) experience when the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said to them, “If all people were to go one way, and the Ansar were to take another, I would choose the path of the Ansar.”
(Arab expression meaning that the adressed is even more beloved than one’s own parents.)

And how did the Ansar (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين) feel when the Prophet of Allah (ﷺ) spoke about them saying, “The sign of belief is love for the Ansar, and the sign of hypocrisy is feeling animosity toward them.”

And how did ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattab (رضي الله عنه) feel when he sought permission to enter upon the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and he (ﷺ) told the doorman, “Allow him to enter and give him glad tidings of Paradise.”

How did ALL the Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم أجمعين) feel while seeing the Messenger morning and evening?

And how are WE going to feel when we see the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and he says to us, “You are my brothers for whom I have cried in my anticipation to meet; you are my brothers who have believed in me without ever seeing me.”

Oh Allah make us among them.
اللهم صَلِّ و سلم على محمد وآله
