فداک ابی و امی یا رسول اللہ
Once a Scholar of Islam was travelling and came across a village where he noticed a very strange thing. He saw a store where a man was selling bread. What was strange is that the man was charging $1 for the fresh bread and $2 for the bread that was made a day before. However, all the people were buying yesterday’s bread though they were more expensive than the fresh bread. The Scholar approached the bread salesman and asked why the people preferred the old bread over the fresh bread. The man said “The people of this village love the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) so much, that they prefer to buy yesterday’s bread over today’s fresh bread because yesterday was closer to the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).”
Today, most of our love for Prophet Muhammad is much less than the love for a single dollar.
The best way to show our love is to follow RasoolULLAH’s (sallal lahu alaihi wassalam) Sunnah in our daily life as much as possible.
May Allah give us the understanding of this beautiful religion of Islam.
