To Love is To Obey and To Imitate (Part 2)

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

So, where are we?


So I guess most of you, my dear brothers and sisters had read about how to show our love to Allah s.w.t by obeying him.

Now I'll try to explain, what do I mean by To Love is To Imitate, inshaAllah.

Try to walk down the streets.

You'll most probably see teenagers or young adults with messy hairs like this:

Messy hairstyle

Or perhaps a little spiky on the top like this:
Fauxhawk hairstyle

Now, now, don't get me wrong. I am not saying that you can't stylize your hair the way that you wanted.

These kinds of hairstyles are seemed to be perfectly 'normal' in the society.

but what if you see someone with this?

Muslim with an Imamah

If you dress with the Imamah, trust me, most of the people on the streets will try to 'analyze' you, from top to below. Allah knows what's in their mind.

"But why dress with the Imamah if you know that people will look you as an alien in the first place?"

Its the love.


The undivided love of the Imamah-wearer towards Rasulullah s.a.w

"It is the sunnah of Rasulullah s.a.w! I love him and I wanted to be like him! Just like you wanted to be as stylish as those Korean actors with their messy hairstyles and David Beckham with his fauxhawk"

So it is logically legit.
and those who loves Rasulullah s.a.w, will imitate Rasulullah in every single deed.

How did Rasulullah eat?
How did Rasulullah sleep?
How did Rasulullah talk?

even to the extent that we wanted to imitate the way Rasulullah thought back then.

I have a friend, here in Alexandria. He loves Rasulullah s.a.w very deeply.
That most of the time, when he talks about the sunnah of Rasulullah s.a.w, he will cry. His tears will fall down rapidly like its raining at the beginning of the winter.

and I have seen a lot of people, doesn't matter whether in Alexandria or back then in Malaysia, that claims that they love Rasulullah s.a.w

but their words are just mere words.

They imitate almost nothing from Rasulullah s.a.w !

Of course, they pray and fast and say the syahadah.

But that's it.

That's it.

They don't even care about the sunnah of Rasulullah s.a.w

didn't even pray at the masjeed, nor giving alms (sadaqah) to the poor.

and they even question about the relevance of dressing in white robes and imamah in these 'modern' days.

In every thing you do, remember, the deeds of Rasulullah is always the best.
The looks of Rasulullah is always the most beautiful.


Because Allah had said in the Quran:

"There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and who remembers Allah often"

 See. Even the All-Knowing Allah s.w.t said that Rasulullah s.a.w is an excellent pattern.

Who are we to say that he's not?

And who are we to not to imitate him?

So let's change, start with a sunnah a day, and one day we will be able to practice all of the sunnah of Rasulullah s.a.w


O Rasulullah how much we loved you,
But forgive us as we can't be the exact same copy of you,
Still we try, for every night and every day,
Please provide us with shafaat at the Awakening Day.

والله أعلم
