Answer:
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Having love for Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) is an integral part of Imaan. Rasulullah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) has mentions in a Hadith:

عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ، قَالَ: قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : لاَ يُؤْمِنُ أَحَدُكُمْ، حَتَّى أَكُونَ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ وَالِدِهِ وَوَلَدِهِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ
صحيح البخاري(1/ 12)

Translation: “It was narrated that Anas RadiyAllahu Anhu said: Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said: “None of you truly believes until I am more beloved to him than his father, his child and all the people.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol 1 Page12)

The swiftest way to attain intense love for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam is by inculcating every single Sunnah of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in one’s life. True love for Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam can only be attained by adopting the Sunnah lifestyle of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.

One may also recite abundant Durood Shareef upon Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, as this also creates the love of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in one’s heart.
