Civilisation of Virtues


"In order for us to attain to the superior virtues that will make us acceptable to Allah, we must nourish heartfelt love for the friends of Allah and the Blessed Prophet s.a.w to whom they are devoted. And it is him that we must follow. For this reason it is hoped that as we become truly acquainted with the Prophet s.a.w and take as our model his superior characteristics, which have been praised by Allah, we will have the honour of being amongst  those 'brothers' that the Prophet gave glad tidings of. If we recognise him today, he (s.a.w) will recognize us tomorrow in that great gathering on the last Day. If we reach a state in which we see him in reality then he will see us. If we listen to him and do as he says, then he will hear our cries and take us by the hand. In this way, we will become for others, an exhibition of his beautiful example. This is the greatest virtue of all."
From 'Civilisation of Virtues'
