Most beloved creature in the eyes of Allah the High

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Imam Sadeq (peace be on him) informs that the Messenger of Allah (peace be on him and his progeny) declared, “Creatures are the family of Allah. So the most beloved of the creatures in front of Allah is the one who benefits the family of Allah and makes the family members happy.

(Kafi, vol. 2, p. 164, H. 6)

The above narration shows the extent of Allah’s love towards all His creatures, regardless of their colour, race, creed, etc. He calls all the creatures His Own Family. There cannot be a greater honour than this. Of course, He loves those who believe in Him and do good deeds more than others.

Moreover, the above tradition also shows that among all creatures, Allah the High loves those who are always constantly striving to benefit the creatures of Allah and to make them happy.

Now, imagine the position of the one who tries to make the best creature of Allah viz. the Messenger of Allah (peace be on him and his progeny) and his Ahle Bait (peace be on them) happy and joyous with his deeds like praying for them, doing good to them, serving them, bearing pains and difficulties in their path, etc.

Without doubt, such a creature will stand tall above the rest. Hence, we must strive to first make the best creatures of Allah happy and then become the cause of happiness for others. And there is no better way to do this than pray for the reappearance of our Master, Hazrat Baqiyatullah (may Allah hasten his reappearance) because with his reappearance, all the problems of the people of the world will be solved. Everyone will live a happy and joyous life. Consequently, one who prays for the reappearance will become the most beloved creature of Allah for his hand in praying for the reappearance and thus becoming, even if marginally, the cause of joy and happiness for the whole world.
