Love of Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم for his Ummah

بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم

الحمد الله

Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم made du‘a for us in every Salah:

‘A’ishah رضي الله عنها narrated:

Once, when I saw the Prophet in a good mood, I said to him: “O Messenger of Allah! Supplicate to Allah for me!”

So, he صلى الله عليه و سلم said: “O Allah! Forgive ‘A’ishah her past and future sins, what she has hidden, as well as what she has made apparent.”

So, I began smiling, to the point that my head fell into my lap out of joy.

The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و سلم said to me: “Does my supplication make you happy?”

I replied: “And how can your supplication not make me happy?”

He then said: “By Allah, it is the supplication that I make for my Ummah in every prayer.”

[Reported in ‘Sahih Mawarid adh-Dhaman’, and it is in ‘as-Silsilah as-Sahihah’]

He صلى الله عليه و سلم called us their brothers!

The Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم (once) said, “I wish I could see my brothers.”
The Companions
رضي الله عنهمreplied, “Aren’t we your brothers, O Prophet of Allah?”
صلى الله عليه و سلم replied: “No, you are my Companions. My brothers are those who come after me and believe in me without seeing me.”

[Reported in Musnad Imam Ahmed]

The day everybody will say “Me! Me!”, our Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم will say “My Nation! My Nation!”

…I will say, “O Lord, my followers! My followers!“…

[Excerpt from long hadith of intercession, reported in Sahih Bukhari]
