Love for the Holy Prophet (saws) - 2

Anas narrated: A Bedouin came to the Prophet (s) –we were happy whenever a Bedouin asks the Prophet— to ask him when would the Hour of Resurrection fall. Before answering the man, the time of a prayer fell; therefore, the Prophet (s) came to offer it. Aft er the prayer, the Prophet (s) asked about the man who had asked about the falling of the Hour of Resurrection. When the man came before him, the Prophet (s) asked: “What have you prepared for encountering that Hour?” The man answered: “I, in fact, have not prepared many prayers and days of fasting. I, however, love God and His Messenger.” The Prophet (s) commented: “Man will be attached to the one he loves.” This prophetic statement was the second-most gladdening thing after Islam.  Bihar ul-Anwar; vol. 6 (Chapter: The Obligation of the love for and the obedience to the Prophet—as quoted from Ilal ush-Sharaayi). )
