Faith, what is the key of faith?

Assalam alaikum, warahmatullahe wabarkatohu
Dear brothers and sisters, 
  • Do you know what is the key of faith

Hadith ‏
Narrated Abu Huraira:

“Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said,
“By Him (meaning Almighty Allah) in Whose Hands my life is, none of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father and his children.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 14
In-book : Book 2, Hadith 7



Narrated Anas:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said
“None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all humankind”

Sahih al-Bukhari 15
In-book : Book 2, Hadith 8

*   Love of the Prophet Muhammed ﷺ is the very foundation of faith. The stronger the love for him the greater the faith. Increase or decrease in love for him is an indication of iman or decrease in one’s faith.
*      The proof of love is not in lip service but in obedience. Allah the Glorified says: “Say (0 Muhammad pbuh to mankind): ‘If you (really) love Allah ,then follow me.(3:31)
* The real test of a person’s having more love for Allah and His Messenger than others, comes when the love of one’s children, parents, a religious leader or friend, demands that one do a thing that Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, but he will not bother about the displeasure of others
and obey and follow the example of the Prophet of Allah in disregard of his love for others. If, on the other hand, the love of others is greater, then he will go against the dictates of Shari’ah in order to please those others, and thus fall short of achieving the required level of faith. The same criterion
holds true in respect of one’s love for the traditions of the Prophet pbuh and customs prevalent in one’s tribe or community.


  • Conclusion

Faith,To love massanger ( Prophet Muhammadﷺ ) is an​ essential part of faith or key of faith
