1002755_arabic_calligraphy_I was reading through some ahadeeth (sayings of the Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him), when I came across this:

The Prophet said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of faith:

  • The one to whom Allah and His Apostle becomes dearer than anything else.
  • Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah’s sake.
  • Who hates to revert to Atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the fire.”

It was this very reason – to love the only woman I ever loved for the sake of Allah – that gave me faith in us happening. As Muslims it is more important than the love itself, to love each other not only for the sake of love, but for the sake of Allah. We may love someone for their kindness, beauty, nature, manners, and more, but we love those things in them which are good because it pleases Allah the All Mighty.

We must find it in our hearts that when we love some thing or some one, that we love for the sake of Allah, and attain the sweetness of loving in addition to the sweetness of faith our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) spoke of.
