GMT - 3 Hours Ayat 21 Of Surat Ahzab Considered.

As-Salaam alaykum,

 In Ayat 21 of Surat Ahzab of the Holy Qur'an (33:21), Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, says:--

    "You have indeed in the Apostle of Allah a beautiful pattern
      (of conduct), for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final
      Day, and who engages much in the praise of Allah."

In view of this, since our object is Allah, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, and the Final Day, we are charged to follow the Prophetic guidance shown by Prophet Muhammad, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam-- the guidance referred to as 'a beautiful example' that Allah loves. The Prophet's beautiful example primarily lies in the inner qualities of his soul, designated by his Compassion, Justice, Generosity, Forgiveness etc

We should imitate him in this by obeying the rules of Islamic Shari'a and overcoming everyday forgetfulness of the soul. This is closely related with the teaching(s) in Ayat 31 of Surat Ali-Imran of the Holy Qur'an:--

    "Say ( O Muhammad): If you love Allah, follow me, and Allah will
      love you and forgive you your sins." (3:31)

In otherwords, the way to become worthy of Allah's love is to follow Prophetic guidance. The goal of following this guidance is explained by/in a famous Hadith Qudsi in which the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, quotes the words of Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala:--

    "When My Servant approaches Me through good works, then I love
       him. When I love him, I am the hearing with which he hears, the eye
       with which he sees, the hand with which he grasps, and the foot with
       which he walks." [Bukhari, Hadith No. 6502].
