The Highest Of Mankind


Ibrahim ('alaihi 's-salam) is Khalil-Allah, because there was no love for creatures and there was only love for Allahu ta'ala in his heart. Musa ('alaihi 's-salam) is Kalim-Allah, because he spoke with Allahu ta'ala. 'Isa ('alaihi 's-salam) is Kalimat-Allah, for he did not have a father and was born only upon al-Kalimat al-ilahiyya (the Divine Word) 'Be!' Furthermore, he preached Allahu ta'ala's words, which were full of Divine Wisdom, and communicated them to the ears of people.

Muhammad ('alaihi 's-salam), who is the reason for the creation of all creatures and the highest, the most prominent, the most honourable of mankind, is Habib-Allah (Allahu ta'ala's Darling). There were many evidences proving his greatness and superiority and that he was Habib-Allah. For this reason, such words as 'was overcome' or 'was defeated' cannot be said about him. At Resurrection, he will rise from his grave before everybody. He will go to the place of Judgement first. He will go to Paradise before everybody. The beautiful traits in his character cannot be concluded by counting, nor would human energy suffice to count them.
