 وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ

And indeed, you are of a great moral character.

(al-Qalam: 4)

– 

Why did the Sahabah radiyallahu ‘anhum love the Prophet  so much?

Because they witnessed his beauty. The saw his beauty, and he then became beloved to them. 

When are we going to fall in love with him?

We first need to get to know him. We too will then hopefully witness – with the vision of our heart – something of his beauty. And he will then become our beloved as well. 

How do we know whether or not we actually love him?

If we really loved him, we would follow him. The extent of our love for him can be gauged by the extent to which we implement his sunnah in our lives. 

In what way was he beautiful?

He was beautiful both in his outward physical form and in his inward qualities and characteristics. 

How should we follow him?

We should both imitate and emulate him. We imitate his outward appearance and emulate his character. 

If people look at us, are they able to see him?

If we were true followers of his, then they would have been able to see a reflection of him and of his beauty within us.
