"SIGNIFICANCE OF NA'LAYN SHAREEF "
🌸The word " Na’layn" comes from the word, singular word Na’l , meaning ‘sandals/shoes’.
🌸Na’layn — represents the shape of the blessed sandals of the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ).This is why when we hear a reference to the Prophet’s Sandals (ﷺ), we often hear — “Na’layn Shareef” or “Na’layn Mubarak” or “Na’layn Paak” ,not just because of language but out of due respect for what is being referred to.
🌸An original pair is kept in the Topkapi Palace Museum in Turkey. These sandals remind us how simple and full of humility he (ﷺ) was, and how we are not even worthy of the dust beneath them.
🌸An interesting reflection here is that unfortunately many of us begin to question those that love and respect the Blessed Sandals…but they don’t question themselves when they wear tops, t-shirts, hoodies or bottoms that are littered with logo symbols, other graphics and text .
🌸Love of the Prophet is obligatory on the believers, and a part of the completion of faith. The Prophet said, ’None of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him than his very self, wealth, and all people.’ [Muslim] .
🌸I’ll leave you with one final fleeting reflection. From a very young age we are taught that heaven lies under the feet of our mothers, so what secrets and blessings must lay beneath the feet of Allāh’s beloved (ﷺ) ??
EID MILAD UN NABI ﷺ MUBARAK to all the muslim Ummah around the globe .. May Allah bless us all (Ameen)
