What Have You Taken From The Prophet?

As-Salaam alaikum,

In his Qasidat al-Burda, Imam al-Busayri, may Allah be Merciful to him, said:--

"Wa kullum min Rasulullahi multamisan"... that is ''Everything is taking [something] from the Messenger of Allah'', Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.

What is Kullun?... It must refer to everything other than Allah.. masiwallah... whatever is not Allah is extracting from the noor and wisdom of the Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam... from the light that Allah Ta'ala put in his heart.

Everything: angels, Heavens, Kursee, 'Arsh is taking from the Prophet. That is why Imam al-Busayri said: 'Wa kullun min Rasulullahi multamisan'... he did not limit it to mankind. We may link this, for further understanding, to ayat 4 Surat Qalam (68:4) of the Holy Qur'an, where Allah Ta'ala says:--

"Wa innaka la'ala khuluqin azheem... You are of the most exalted character''.

When Sayyada A'isha, Ummul-Mumineen, may Allah be pleased with her, was asked about the character of the Messenger of Allah, she answered, "His character was the Qur'an." And the Qur'an is Allah's Own Words... not created. The Prophet, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, is created, but his Khuluq, character, was dressed in an uncreated way. That is why we say noor an-Nabi, his light was first... to be dressed with the reality of the Holy Qur'an.

We should endevour to take something from the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, copying from his Compassion, Generosity, Justice, Forgiveness.....
