“One is with those whom he loves”
It is narrated from Sa’id bin Jubayr: “One day, a companion (ansari) man Sevbân Dan (r.a.) came to Prophet of Allah, Muhammad (Peace and blessings upon him) while he felt sad. The Messenger of Allah asked him what happened. He answered:
-O Prophet of Allah. I love you more than my flesh, my children and family and also my possessions. While sitting at home, I remember you and can not wait to see you. I am longing for you that I immediately run to come to you. I can look at your face and sit with you whenever I want. But at the judgment day, you will be raised with the other Prophets in Garden, and I will not be able to see you.
The Prophet did not say anything, but later on Angel Gabriel came with the Ayah below and the Prophet sent the good news to the Ansari man.
The verse shed light on the issue:
“And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger, then they will be with those on whom Allah has bestowed His blessings: the Prophets, the truthful, the martyrs, and the righteous… And excellent are those as friends. [an-Nisa’ 4:69]
One more narration for the revelation of this ayah is:
It is narrated from Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him):
A companion(sahabi) came to Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings upon him) and said:
-When will be the Hour (the Day of Resurrection)?
He (the Prophet (s.a.w)) said:
-What preparation have you made for it?
-I have made no significant preparation with regard to Salat (prayer), fasting and Sadaqah (charity) but I love Allah and His Messenger”.
Then Messenger of Allah (s.a.w) answered:
-Do not worry. You will be with those whom you love.
Muslims were never happier than with this hadith since Prophet Muhammad had given the most beautiful news for the Sahabi(companions): “One is with those whom he loves.”
