sweet Rose and Beloved sallallahu alaihi wasallam

Sheikh Sadi tells in a representative style in the following story from his work called Gulistan ("The Land of Rose") how the friends of Allah owe their beauty to the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi waaallam) and how all of their spiritual states come from the spirituality of the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

"One person goes to the public bath. In the public bath one of his friends gives him a nice smelling clay (cleaning soil) so that he can clean himself. A wonderful scent emanates from the clay that caresses the spirit. The man asks the clay:

"Oh dear! Are you musk or amber? I am in ecstasy due to your beautiful scent that attracts the hearts…"

The clay responds to him as follows:

"I am neither musk nor amber. I am just an ordinary soil. However, I was under a rose sprout and every dawn I was being kneaded by the dews that were dropping from the rosebuds. So,the scent that you are feeling which refreshes the hearts belongs to those roses…"

Rose is the symbol of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam). This world is like a classroom and in this classroom, the most important education is

To get to know the Sultan of the Roses

To have a share from the holy scent of that Rose,

To be a drop of dew in the petal of that Rose.

The most essential material needed in this path is the love for him.
