Obey and Love the Holy Prophet
by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih III(rh)
We owe a great deal to the Promised Messiah, peace be on him, for his having grafted in our hearts an unbounded Love for the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. The Holy Quran tells us that it is the love for the Holy Prophet that can save the people from the fire of hell and it is obedience to him that can attract the pleasure of God.
Whatever the people might say about us, we who witness the manifestation of the beauty and grace in their entirety, of the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and we, whose every particle of body and soul is full of his love and is enchanted by it, and we who are all the time anxious to declare the exaltedness of the Holy Prophet all over the world cannot leave him, whatever the circumstances.
How is it possible that contrary to what we feel in the depth of our hearts, our tongues should declare us non-Muslims. Likewise, how can we leave the great spiritual son of the Holy Prophet i.e. the Promised Mahdi, through whom we have realised, the true exalted position of the greatest of all the prophets, Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be on him.
