Now two kinds of restraints and constraints towards the Outsiders of Allah Almighty are left in this material world: one is the restraint and constraint of the love of homeland, children, wife, kith and kin. Hence, in Hajj which is the third Fundamental Element of Islam, the Nafi for these is done and the Asbaat of the Love and Curiosity of original Station of Azal and the Eternal Chamber the Illuminated Home and the Qurb and Wisaal and the Mushahida and Didaar is done. Second restraint and constraint is the wealth and worldly possessions. Its Nafi is done by the Fourth Element - Zakaat and in its place the Asbaat of the Fikr and thought of the real wealth and richness of the Hereafter and the provision of the journey of the Uqba is established. Hence, the Order of the very brief and short Element Kalimah-e-Tayyeb is implemented and proven in the rest of the big Elements of Islam. That is why, first only the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb is asked to recite to the person who is let entered in Islam - Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah - because in this small priceless pearl are stored all the reservoirs of Islam and all the religious and spiritual answers are accumulated in this short and brief verbal declaration of the Tauheed and Message. Since the role model and sample of all the Fundaments of Islam and Religious Actions in this world for us is blessed person of Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and his blessed life and the way of his life and the best conduct (and ethics) and deeds of goodness and action of his life and his total gestures and movements and without following his way, the implementation of the Order of the Nafi and Asbaat in the entire Elements of Islam is impossible, therefore the greatness of the both phrases of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb that is, the Declaration of Tauheed or the Nafi and Asbaat that is Laaa-Ilaaha Il Allah/there is none worthy of worship except Allah and the Declaration of the Message or Following Upon the way of the Holy Prophet that is Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam) is same.
Allah Almighty says: [Say O Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam to mankind]: if you love Allah, follow me (), Allah will love you (3:31)
The Eimaan of pietism and devoutness is different and the Eimaan of Muhabbat is different. Lo! Eimaan cannot be unless it is accompanied by Muhabbat. Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam said that: None of you is a Momin as long as you love me more that your wealth and children and relatives and yourself. Some hard person are those who consider just the Declaration of Nafi Asbaat and mere Tauheed enough in Islam and ignore the importance and significance of the second part of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb: Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam). In addition, these are not convinced of the original Eimaan of Muhabbat and Hidayat. How stupid they are that they consider the Course more important than the Guide and Leader and take the Code of Action as more beneficiary than the Real Model and Practical Representation. Nevertheless, courses are multiple and the hobgoblins of deserted places are many! I think the importance of the second part of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam) is even more important than the Iqraar (Declaration) of the Tauheed and Nafi Asbaat in the first part of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Laaa-Ilaaha Il Allah/there is none worthy of worship except Allah. The reason is that if you ask people of any religion that if they acknowledge God, all will say that they believe in God and if you ask them if they acknowledge Him the One and Only, they will become ready to acknowledge this even and if you start counting the Sifaat of Allah Almighty like the Creator, the Sovereign Lord and the Provider etcetera, they will acknowledge all but if you will ask them if they acknowledge Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam), all will turn solid. If you will discuss the aspects of Tauheed and deeds of goodness in front of some Kaafir, Hypocrite, Mushrik and Atheist, he will acknowledge but when you will bring the blessed Name Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam on your tongue, they will react as if electrical shock has been given to them. If just the Tauheed and deeds of goodness is the real essence, than all religions would be true. Hence, the real touchstone of the Eimaan is the Declaration of the Prophethood of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, following upon his way and actions and in fact Muhabbat for him. He has no Eimaan who has no Muhabbat of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. He is astray who is without the Guidance of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. He is the outcast of the Sanctuary, whose heart keeps jealousy and enmity and discord with the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam no matter if he is the Aalim of the entire world and is a devout and ascetic (worshipper) like Satan. The total asset of a Muslim in Islam is the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam.
