We have the greatest of intermediaries to petition on our behalf with God. We have our master Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace.

When we sought God’s love He directed us to Muhammad: “Say [to them O Muhammad]: If you love God then follow me.”

When we sought the ritual prayer He directed us to observe Muhammad: “Pray as you see me praying.”

When we sought to perform the Hajj He directed us to Muhammad: “Take from me knowledge of the Hajj rituals.”

When one wants to be a Muslim he must testify to the prophecy of Muhammad.

Every time we seek something in our deen we’re directed to Muhammad.

Even in our ritual prayer where we seek our Lord He directs us to remember Muhammad: (after the tashahhud) “I bear witness that there is no true deity except God, and that Muhammad is his servant and messenger.” Even in the midst of our prayer God has enjoined upon us to mention Muhammad: “Peace be upon you O prophet and the mercy and blessings of God.” And we mention him further by sending prayers and blessings of peace upon him!

And when we die and the funeral prayer is being performed Muhammad is mentioned after the second ‘takbir’.

We enter the grave and the mud is being cast upon the body, again there is Muhammad: “In the name of Allah, upon the religion of the messenger of Allah.”

And on the Day of Reckoning, there is Muhammad: “I am the first for whom the earth shall be split apart, and I say that without pride!”

When the toil and suffering of that Day afflicts all who are present, thus shall there be Muhammad again: “I am for it (the intercession).”

None shall enter Paradise except after Muhammad. And if we ask our Lord the highest Paradise, al-Firdaws, its resident is Muhammad.

Should we not be enamoured with him, connected to him, yearning for him? It would be a small expenditure if we spent our lives and spilt our blood for his sake.
