Love for the sake of Allah

Love for the sake of Allah

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh


๐ŸŒนOne of the most blessed forms of love is love for the sake of Allah. This is when you love a righteous soul for their devotion to Allah. The love is because of Allah and one’s faith in Him.


๐Ÿ’•We should all have people we love for the sake of Allah. Among the seven shaded on judgement day will be:


ุฑูŽุฌูู„ุงูŽู†ู ุชูŽุญูŽุงุจู‘ูŽุง ูููŠ ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู‡ู ุงุฌู’ุชูŽู…ูŽุนูŽุง ุนูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ู ูˆูŽุชูŽููŽุฑู‘ูŽู‚ูŽุง ุนูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ู

Two men who love one another for Allah’s sake and they meet and part upon that. (Bukhari, 660)


๐ŸŒธNarrated from Muโ€™adh bin Jabal that the Messenger of Allah ๏ทบ took him by the hand and said: โ€œO Muโ€™adh, by Allah indeed I love you. He said: I advise you, O Muโ€™adh, that you never leave saying in the dubur (end) of every prayer:

ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู‡ูู…ู‘ูŽ ุฃูŽุนูู†ู‘ููŠ ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ุฐููƒู’ุฑููƒูŽ ูˆูŽุดููƒู’ุฑููƒูŽ ูˆูŽุญูุณู’ู†ู ุนูุจูŽุงุฏูŽุชููƒูŽ

โ€˜O Allah, help me to remember You, thank You and worship you well .โ€™โ€ (Abu Dawood: 1522, Sahih: Albani)


Shaykh Al Albani said:


โญ”If I really love you for the sake of Allaah I would persist in advising you, and you would do the same…the cost of loving someone for the sake of Allaah is that each person shows sincerity towards the other by advising him, always and forever telling him to do good and preventing him from badโ€”he is more constant in advising him than that personโ€™s own shadow is close.”


๐Ÿ’Œ When I love someone for the sake of Allah I always pray for them.ย  Pray for theirย  Peace. pray for their growth.ย  Pray for their success. Pray for their happiness.


My messages come from the depths of my heart. You can think of these messages as my letters and expression of sincerity and genuine care for the loved ones


May Allah grant us His love and the love of those whom He loves and whom we love, and the love of deeds that will bring us closer to His love.

Allahumma Ameen
