[17] Hadith Seventeen

The Prophet's Exposition of the Obligation of Loving Him Above All Other Created Beings

It is narrated from Anas -- Allah be well-pleased with him -- that he said the Prophet said: "None of you believes until I am more beloved to him than his father, his son, and all people." This narration is agreed upon [i.e. narrated by Bukhari and Muslim].

Allah's blessings and peace on the Prophet., his Family, and his Companions
