What is Allahs Love? Scholars of Islamic Jurisprudence say: "God's love to his servant is manifested in His Will to grant him benevolence and bless him in performing good deeds. He would guide him, shower him with blessings and engulf him with unstinted mercy."
Allah will bring a people whom He loves and who love Him. Quran 5:54 It was related by Abu Huraira that the Messenger of God (PBUH) said: "When God loves a person, He calls on Gabriel saying: "Since I love so and so – you should also love him." He said, Then Gabriel would love him, after which he would announce to other angels that God loves so and so - you should also love him. Angels would then love him. After that, the man would be acceptable and appreciated by people on earth.
A Warm Feeling The Islamic faith is a warm feeling with Allah, its not about holy symbols, pictures, religious positions that control our life, and wasted efforts practicing useless stuff. It is a very simple, warm relation.
A Warm Feeling The prophet (PBUH) saw a woman searching for her lost baby and when she found him, she start breast- feeding him. He said, Allah is more merciful to you than this (mother) is to her baby.
A Warm Feeling When an average person feels isolated or in despair, simply he raise his hands and call from the depth of his soul to the one who knows him and sense an answer. An atheist cannot allow himself that luxury (Jeffery Lang )
His Love: Shower of Blessings Saying His name (Allah) Whosoever follows [Gods] guidance, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (2:38) Whosoever does right, whether male or female, and is a believer, him verily we shall quicken with good life, and We shall pay them a recompense in proportion to the best of what they used to do. (16:97) A man came to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) intending to declare his belief in his prophethood, but laid a condition for him…that God would forgive his sins. Prophet Muhammad said, Didnt you know that declaring your belief in God and his prophet erases all your previous sins? And those who believe and do good deeds, they are dwellers of Paradise, and they dwell therein forever. (2:82)
His Love: Shower of Blessings Prophet (PBUH) said, The best deed Allah loves is the happiness you cause into a believers heart. He also said, Allah is shy to reject the hands of a believer calling on him. And He gives you of all you ask of Him, and if ye would count the bounty of Allah ye cannot reckon it. Lo! Man is verily a wrong-doer, an ingrate. (Qurán 14:34)
His Love: Shower of Blessings And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he cries unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. (Qurán 2:186)
His Love: Shower of Blessings Will they not rather turn unto Allah and seek forgiveness of Him? For Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (Quran 5:74) …Who created me, and He doth guide me. (Qurán 26:78) Will not Allah defend His slave? Yet they would frighten thee with those (they put) beside Him. He whom Allah sends astray, for him there is no guide. (Qurán 39:36)
His Love: Shower of Blessings "By performing optional acts of worship my servant draws closer to me until I declare my Love for him. After that, I will guide him in his sense hearing, seeing, and would inspire him with good words, as well as enlighten his mind. After that, if he supplicates to me I would accept his supplication directly and if he asks me of anything, I would grant it to him. If he seeks my help, I will definitely come to rescue him. (Hadith Qudsi) Um Salamah said, "When God loves a person, he endows him with self-enlightenment, spiritual awareness, as well as consciousness against evil."
Allah the Mercifull Mercy of Allah to mankind is a big topic that need a separate lecture "O my servants, who have transgressed against their own souls! Do not despair in the mercy of Allah; for Allah forgives all sins; He is oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Quran 39:53)
How can we have Allahs love? He loves: –Truly Allah loves those who turn unto Him, and loves those who have a care for cleanliness. (Quran 2:222) –Lo! Allah loves the kindly. (Quran 5:13) –Lo! Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). (Quran 3:159) –Allah forbids you not those who warred not against you on account of religion and drove you not out from your homes, that ye should show them kindness and deal justly with them. Lo! Allah loves the just dealers. (Quran 60:8) –Allah loves the steadfast. (Quran 3:146) –Lo! Allah loves those who ward off evil. (Quran 3:76)
How can we have Allahs love? He doesnt love: –And as for those who believe and do good works, He will pay them their wages in full. Allah loves not wrong- doers. (Quran 3:57) –Their effort is for corruption in the land, and Allah loves not corrupters. (Quran 5:64) –Allah loves not all prideful boasters. (Quran 57:23) –Allah hath blighted usury and made almsgiving fruitful. Allah loves not the impious and guilty. (Quran 2:276) –Lo! Allah loves not one who is treacherous and sinful. (Quran 4:107) –Lo! Allah loves not transgressors. (Quran 5:87) –Lo! Allah loves not the treacherous. (Quran 8:58)
Our Love for Allah Our love to Allah is the highest position of worship and it means to give yourself to Allah. And yet, among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals (to Him). They love them (false gods) as they should love Allah. But those who believe are stronger in their love for Allah… (Quran 2:165)
Thanks for listening May Allah bless all with his love
