As-Salaam alaikum,

 Real Imaan (faith) in Islam is to love the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, more than you love yourself. In verse/ayat 80 of Surat Nisa'i of the Holy Qur'an, we have it stated:--

               ''He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah.''  (4:80)

This is as if Allah Ta'ala is saying to Muslims, the World, the Universe and everything He created, 'If you love whom I love, you will be accepted.'  It is only with adaab (good manners) and discipline that we can approach Allah's Divine Presence. Even with this, it has to be through obedience. And there is no obedience without love, so whoever love Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, loved Allah, which is why He said:--

            ''Say: (O Muhammad), if you [really] love Allah, then follow me! Allah will love you and forgive your sins

              and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful'' (3:31)

This ayat shows us the importance of loving the Prophet. Here, we are not speaking about obligations, which we have to observe, we have to do, but some people say, Don't love or praise too much as that is Shirk.

Hadith: ''You will not be a true believer until you love me more than your children and parents and all creation'' (Bukhari and Muslim)

Who is first, your mother or father, your brother and sister or the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam?  That is it!  Allah Ta'ala is saying, 'I want you to love the Prophet more than anyone'!!
