Is the Light of the Prophet(saw) from Allah’s light?

Is the Light of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) from Allaahs Light?
Question:Was the light of Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) from the Light of Allaah, or from some other light?
Answer:The light of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) is the light of the Message and the Guidance by which Allaah guides whom He wills from among His creatures. Without doubt, the light of the Message and the light of guidance are from Allaah. Allaah, the Most High says: It is not given to any human being that Allaah should speak to him unless (it be) by Inspiration or from behind a veil or (that) He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His Leave. Verily, He is Most High, Most Wise. And thus We have sent to you, (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam)) Ruhan (an Inspiration and a Mercy) of Our Command. You knew not what is the Book, nor what is faith, but We have made it (this Quran) a light therewith We guide whomsoever of Our worshippers We will. And verily, you (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam)) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e. Allaahs religion of Islamic Monotheism). The path of Allaah, to Whom belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. Verily, all matters at the end go to Allaah (for decision). [1] But this light is not a part of the Seal of the Awliya, as some of the pantheists claim, for he was flesh, blood and bone… etc He was created from a father and a mother and he had no creation prior to his birth.  Read More

Homes Are Built On Love

Marriage is not a passing adventure! It is a life relationship, a firm covenant, and a very serious partnership.
There are three necessary conditions for every Muslim home to fulfill its mission. They are tranquility, love, and mercy.
I mean by tranquility satisfaction. A husband should be totally satisfied by his wife and vice versa. Love is a mutual feeling that makes the relationship a happy and enjoyable one and mercy is the basis of all good traits in men and women.

God, tells Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the Quran:
{Thus it is due to mercy from God that you deal with them gently, and had you been rough, hard hearted, they would certainly have dispersed from around you.} (Al-Mai’dah 3: 159)
Mercy is not a temporary feeling of sympathy. It is rather a continuous flow of niceness, high morals, and honorable attitude.

Nurturing Marital Love

He bounded up the stairs so energetically that it was hard for me to believe that here was a man of more than eighty years. He had the vitality of a youth. Then I learned the reason why: Though he had gotten married back in 1947 when he was about thirty years old, he was able to say to me: “I do not recall that I ever once got angry with my wife or that she was even once annoyed with me. And if I had a headache, it was impossible for her to sleep until after I fell asleep.

 

” Then he said with feeling: “I can never think of going out somewhere, even to purchase some household needs, without taking her with me and holding her hand. It is as if we are newlyweds.” When, due to a medical operation, she had become unable to bear children, he said to her: “You are more precious to me than children.” He told me: “As long as she walks upon the Earth, I could never even think of marrying anyone else.” That man is a good example of how devotion can last even into old age. Unfortunately, when we look at the state of the majority of people of any age, we can appreciate that his relationship is a rarity indeed, a sort of ideal. Of course, we do not have to be held to such an ideal. Moreover, we should not go to our spouses and expect them to be like that when we ourselves have so many shortcomings. Marriage is love and affection. Allah says: “He created for you mates from among yourselves so that you can seek comfort in them and He has placed between you affection and mercy.” [ Sûrah al-Rûm: 21] This is why each sex is drawn to the other in the first place, as if each person is looking for his missing other half. When the wife of the famous jurist Abû Rabî`ah died, he carried out her burial himself and had to wipe the dirt from his own hands.
