Perfect following

**********************

The most important thing in perfect following is not acts of worship as some people think; it is what God mentioned when He said to His prophet:

7-199: "Hold to forgiveness; command what is right and turn away from ignorant people."

The prophet asked Gabriel the trustee of revelation when he descended with this verse: "What does God want from me O brother Gabriel?" He said: "Wait, I'll ask God The Omniscient." He went and came back, he said: "God says to you:

"Keep relation with those who boycott relation with you, give those who don’t give you and forgive those who offend you."[1]

This is the following of men of perfection. Hypocrites used to follow and stand behind him in prayers and go to battle fields with him. Who can follow him in his perfect ethics and hidden intentions?

They are men of perfection, the prophet, (May the blessing and peace of God be upon him), said about them:

"The ones amongst you who sits the nearest to me on the Day of Judgment are those who have the best ethics, those who are humble and those who love and being loved by people." In another narration he said: "The ones I love the most amongst you ……."[2]

The prophet alienated from those who are not like this, he said about a believer:

"A believer loves and being loved by others, there is no good in that who doesn’t love or being loved by others."[3]

If the messenger of God said this, then there is no good in that who doesn’t follow these perfections. How can one follow these descriptions? The following, by which one can win the companionship of the beloved and chosen prophet, beauty, perfection and light of God, is in perfect ethics and legal dealings on the way of Prophet Mohammed. This is what people now either neglect or exceed the limits, but whoever wants to be loved by God, he should follow his real ethics, it was narrated: "God loves those who follow His ethics among people." God is Al-Afoww (The Pardoner) and He loves those who pardon others, He is Al-Kareem (The Benevolent) and He loves those who are generous, He is Al-Baset (The Extender) and He loves those who ease things for people, and so on with all other best names of God, God loves those who follow His ethics among people. The ethics of the messenger of God by which God beautified him were just gifts from God. It was narrated in Adab As'sohbah by Abdul-Rahman As'salmy that the prophet, (May the blessing and peace of God be upon him), said:

"God refined me the best way."

There is no jihad, no hardship, no suffering because it was his nature, God kept him away from all other things, he said about himself: "I never thought about any kind of pre-Islam fun except twice; the first time there was a wedding in Mecca, I asked my partner to care about my sheep until I go to Mecca to watch the wedding." What happened? He said: "God made me fell asleep until the heat of the sun awakened me." The second time the same thing was repeated again. Why?

Because God protected him from such manners of pre-Islam, He educated him on divine manners and made them his nature, this was especially for the best of all people, (May the blessing and peace of God be upon him).
