Allah (may He be Exalted) says: "Say (O Muhammad peace be upon him to mankind): "If you (really) love Allâh then follow me (i.e. accept Islâmic Monotheism, follow the Qur'ân and the Sunnah), Allâh will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."" [Surat Al `Imran: 31].
"Beautified for men is the love of things they covet; women, children, much of gold and silver (wealth), branded beautiful horses, cattle and well-tilled land. This is the pleasure of the present world's life; but Allâh has the excellent return (Paradise with flowing rivers) with Him." [Surat Al `Imran: 14].
The need to love is a natural disposition in each one of us, so you find everyman needs to be beloved.
The definition of love is heart inclination, so when one of us loves something, he yearns to see it, and when he sees it, his heart-beats increase, and feels with the presence of the beloved what he does not feel with others. So, love needs giving, following, continuation, and patience. The most important love is the love of Allah then His Messenger, then this religion.
So, the love of Allah is the basic rule from which any other love should emerge, so how beautiful love is, where it makes life beautiful and how it makes life beautiful and how it helps bearing the burdens of life.
I love you so as you love me:
Many people hope that everyone loves him, but he does not get it, so if he had loved them, they would have loved him. Our mother Khadijah (may Allah be pleased with her) used to love the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), hence the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: I was granted her love. How beautiful words these are and how wonderful purpose he intended. When love is done for the sake of Allah, it will be the water of life and the nutrition of the soul. Love is not a word to be said, a message to be written, or a poem to be chanted, but it is following, imitation, and giving.
Love is the hope which I always waited for, an event that I awaited for a long time, and a story that has been written years ago. Love is a nest which I built, a palace which I established with yearning, and a garden by flowers and basil I planted.
Sword is more truthful than books
Between its blades you find the difference between seriousness and play.
So, if you do not give love for the sake of your happiness, enjoy it in your life, and give it to those who love it frankly without hesitation, yearning without shyness, what would be its value and importance?
