Allah (s.w.t.) Ordered Us to Rejoice in the Prophet (s.a.w.)
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Ustadz Fakhruddin Owaisi at-Tijani said, Allah (s.w.t.) Ordered us to rejoice in the Prophet (s.a.w.). To express happiness for the Prophet (s.a.w.) coming to us is an obligation given by Allah (s.w.t.) through Qur’an, as Allah (s.w.t.) Said:
Say: “In the Bounty of Allah and in His Mercy ― in that let them rejoice ...” (Surah Yunus:58)
This Order Came because joy makes the heart grateful for the Mercy of Allah (s.w.t.). And what greater Mercy did Allah (s.w.t.) Give than the Prophet (s.a.w.) himself? Of him, Allah (s.w.t.) Says:
We Sent thee not, but as a mercy for all creatures. (Surah al-Anbiya’:107)
The Prophet (s.a.w.) was Sent as a mercy to all Creation, not just mankind. It is incumbent not only upon Muslims, but upon all humanity to rejoice in his person. Unfortunately, today it is some Muslims who are foremost in rejecting Allah’s (s.w.t.) Order to rejoice in His Prophet (s.a.w.).
