Introduction of the Prophet’s Sermons – 2
lbn Ishaq said: Al-Bukhári, vol. 6, p. 94 Muslim, vol. 1, p. 194
“The Messenger of Alláh saww gave another speech in which he said, ‘AII thanks are due to Alláh, I thank Him and seek His Aid. We seek refuge with Alláh frorn the evils within ourselves and the burden of our evil deeds. He whom Alláh guides will never be misled and he whorn He misguides will never find one to guide hirn. 1 bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Alláh, Alone without partners. Verily, the best speech is the Book of Alláh the Exalted. He in whose heart the Qurán is made beautiful and on its account entered Islam after being a disbeliever, who chose the Qurán aboye the speech of all people, has indeed attained success. The Qur’ án is the best and most eloquent speech there is. Love those who lave Alliih, and love Alláh from the bottom of your hearts.?’
The Prophet saww meant here that Alláh ‘s love should encompass all parts of the heart, for in this case, one’s actions will start from his heart in sincerity with Alláh.
