The memory of Muhammad’s birth, peace and blessings of Allaah with him, is a bright sign in the history of Islam; and is worthy of this memory and celebration; and to gather for her to remember Allah, Glorified and Exalted, to study the Sira and all that is related to it, such as: feeding, keeping family ties, helping the needy, orphans … and everything that is to look for the Sunna (the beautiful example of the Messenger) to follow it and take as an example its beautiful qualities of character.
“¨I have certainly been sent to perfect the noble qualities of character” ¨
The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings on him. The love for the Messenger of Allah is to follow and imitate him. The love for the Messenger is the determination to help him, the defense of his Sunna, to submit to her and the fear of opposing her. Love is the continuous memory of the beloved; love is to prefer the beloved; love is the longing for the beloved; Love is the coincidence of the heart with what the beloved wants, loving what he loves and detesting what he detests.
