Love is Bilal...

Love is Bilal... when he retired from making the adhan after the death of the Prophet SAW because he called the Prophet to prayer when he was alive, and could not stand to do so without him.

Love is Bilal... when he left Madinah because he could not stand to stay there where everything reminded him of the Beloved SAW.

Love is Bilal... when a long time had passed since he visited the Prophet's grave in Madinah, the Prophet SAW came up to him in his dream and said, "what is with this dryness/ distance, oh Bilal?"

Love is Bilal... arriving in Madinah in the middle of the night and Hassan and Hussain finding him at the maqam of the Prophet SAW crying and them insisting that he, for old time's sake, make the adhan for the impending fajr prayer, causing an uproar that morning in Madinah as people therein poured out of their homes weeping in RasulAllah's memory, in hope that maybe, just maybe, the Prophet had come back to them.

Love is Bilal... when Umar ibn al Khattab asked him to make the adhan calling the army in Sham to prayer, he reached till "Ashhadu anna Muhammadan Rasul Allah" and began to weep uncontrollably, unable to finish the adhan, causing the entire army to tear up- Umar being the most emotional of them all. 

Love is Bilal... on his deathbed suffering from the pangs of death, with his family weeping for him, while he cried out in poetry to his family gathered around him, " Tomorrow I meet the beloveds// Muhamamad and his companions"

Love is Bilal.
