Love of the Prophet is based on the divine origin of his message

[throughbitsandpcs] None of you is a true believer unless

The Prophet Muhammad told his Companions,

“None of you is a true believer until I become more beloved to him than his child, his father, and the whole of mankind.”

This is reported by Anas and collected by Bukhari (vol. 1, p. 20, hadith no. 13) and Muslim (vol. 1, p. 31, hadith no. 71).

Love of the Prophet is not based on his humanity, but on the divine origin of his message. Thus, like the love of Allah, love of the Prophet is expressed by total obedience to his commands. Allah The Exalted said in the final revelation,

“Whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah…”  { An-Nisa 4:80 }

and

“Say: ‘Obey Allah and obey the Prophet…'”  { Al-Imran 3:32 }
