I have heard the following story from a pious and knowledgeable brother. Hopefully it will be beneficial for all of us.
Once a Scholar of Islam was travelling and came across a village where he noticed a very strange thing. He saw a store where a man was selling bread. What was strange is that the man was charging $1 for the fresh bread and $2 for the bread that was made a day before. However, all the people were buying yesterday's bread though they were more expensive than the fresh bread. The Scholar approached the bread salesman and asked why the people preffered the old bread over the fresh bread. The man said "The people of this village love the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) so much, that they prefer to buy yesterday's bread over today's fresh bread because yesterday was closer to the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)."
Today, most of our love for Prophet Muhammad is much less than the love for a single dollar. May Allah give us the understanding of this beautiful religion of Islam. Ameen.
