The matter of loving the Prophet holds a special importance for the practice of Islam. Allah, to Whom we owe everything we have, has presented the Prophet as the most ideal example and invites those who love Him to obey His Messenger as a proof of their love. Moreover, Allah wants us to obey the Prophet sincerely, not just as a duty. This kind of obedience can only be possible if the Prophet is loved with a sincere heart. Naturally, there are reasons why we love someone; so, then, what are the reasons why we love our Prophet?
Verses which refer to the reasons why we should love the Prophet:
1. The role model status of the Prophet for all people:

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was sent to all humankind as the "last prophet", and he was an ideal person in all aspects. This is because he was chosen and molded by Allah himself1. In the expression of the Holy Quran, he is of a tremendous nature.2 He is a holy lamp that gives light.3 He always guides his followers to the right path.4 He was sent as a mercy for all people.5

Prophet Muhammad is a perfect example for all people, especially for those who believe in Allah and the Judgment Day. As a matter of fact, this matter is clearly stated in the following verse: "Verily in the Messenger of Allah you have a good example for him who looks unto Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much."6

When the exemplary life of Prophet Muhammad is observed, it can be seen that he presented the most beautiful examples of being sincerely committed to Allah, obeying Allah's orders with love, sharing the pain of the people, helping people merely for the pleasure of Allah, turning this deed into a pleasure of the heart, loving and respecting people merely because they are human, and showing mercy when in a position of power.

The liveliest examples of combating cruelty and evil and never abandoning righteousness or justice can be found in the Prophet's life. The most unique examples of patience, compassion, modesty and understanding by the head of the family, displaying responsibility in management, farsightedness in military matters, caring for children, orphans and the needy can all be found in the Prophet's life.7
