Hadith-E-Qudsi Of the Day 15 Urdu

As for the obligation to follow him and obey his sunnah and follow his guidance, Allâh says, "Say: if you love Allâh, follow me and He will love you and forgive you your wrong actions." (3:31) "Believe in Allâh and His Messenger, the unlettered Prophet who believes in Allâh and His words. Follow him, perhaps you will be guided." (7:157) "No, by your Lord, they will not believe until they ask you to judge between them in what they disagree about and then they shall find in themselves no impediment touching your verdict, but shall surrender in full submission." (4:64) i.e. obey your judgement.
Allâh also says, "You have a good model in the Messenger of Allâh for one who hopes for Allâh and the Last Day." (33:21) Muhammad ibn 'Alî at-Tirmidhî said, "To take the Messenger as a model means to emulate him, follow his sunnah and abandon opposition to him in either word or action." Several commentators said words to that effect.
It is said that this was intended as a criticism of those who fail to follow him. Sahl said that the âyat from the Fâtihah (Sûrah 1), "The path of those whom You have blessed," means to follow the sunnah. Allâh commands this and promises they will be guided by following him by reason of the fact that Allâh has sent him with the guidance and the Dîn of the truth to purify them, teach them the Book and the Wisdom, and to guide them to the straight path.
In the first âyat mentioned, Allâh promises His love and forgiveness to those who follow the Prophet and prefer him to their own passions and inclinations. Soundness of belief is based on submission to the Prophet and satisfaction with his judgement and abandoning opposition to him.
It is related from al-Hasan al-Basrî that some people said, "Messenger of Allâh, we love Allâh," so Allâh revealed, "Say: if you love Allâh, follow me and Allâh will love you." (3:31) It is related that this verse was revealed about Ka'b ibn Ashraf and others. They said, "We are the sons of Allâh and His beloveds," (5:20) and "We are stronger in love for Allâh," (2:165) so Allâh revealed this âyat.
Az-Zajjaj says that the meaning of, "Say: if you love Allâh", is if you desire to obey Him, then do what He had commanded you to do since the love of the slave of Allâh and the Messenger lies in obeying both of them and being happy with what they command. Allâh's love for them is His pardon to them and His blessing them with His mercy. It is said that love from Allâh manifests itself in protection and success. Love on the part of the slaves manifests and in obedience.
A poet (Al-Mahmûd ibn al-Hasan al-Warraq):
Do you rebel against God when you claim to love Him?
By my life, this is an extraordinary example!
If your love had been true, then you would have obeyed Him.
The lover obeys the one he loves.
