Do you love the Prophet (peace be upon him)? (I believe you do).
It is reasonable to understand how when you love someone, you would naturally want to make them happy; you’d want to be in their presence as often as possible; you’d hang on to their every word. This is understood intuitively. And the implication, I believe, is clear.
Whilst on the Blogging Theology site, I chanced to see a comment:
…i invite you to find a single evidence for the validity of the belief in hadith from the Quran.
So MWM (That’ me) replied:
“O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and do not invalidate your deeds.” (Qur’an, Muhammad 47:33)
We know how to obey Allah, Most Exalted: we heed the Qur’an (Allah’s words).
How do we obey the Messenger (peace be upon him)? By heeding his words.
Where are his words recorded? In the recorded reports attributed to him.
What are ‘reports’ called in Arabic? Hadiths.
(But Muslims have carefully sifted through these reports, grading them to different levels of authenticity)
