His Love for Madinah (Ahadith 1551 - 1552)


Bismillah.
If you get separated from someone or something you love, you want to get back to it as soon as you can, right?
Volume 3, Book 27, Number 28:
Narrated Humaid:
Anas (radiallaahu `anhu) said, "Whenever Allah's Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) returned from a journey, he, on seeing the high places of Medina, would make his she-camel proceed faster; and if it were another animal, even then he used to make it proceed faster."
Narrated Humaid that the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) used to make it proceed faster out of his love for Medina.

Volume 3, Book 27, Number 29:
Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):
As above, but mentioned "the walls of Medina" instead of "the high places of Medina. Al-Harith bin Umar agrees with Anas (radiallaahu `anhu).
Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) loved his city Madinah. It's obvious that he would want to get back to it quickly after returning from a long journey. Isn't it cute? :)
May Allah instill its love in our hearts as well. <3
