love for the sake of Allah

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "A man set out to visit a brother (in Faith) in another town and Allah sent an angel on his way. When the man met the angel, the latter asked him, "Where do you intend to go?'' He said, "I intend to visit my brother in this town". The angel said, "Have you done any favour to him?'' He said, "No, I have no desire except to visit him because I love him for the sake of Allah, the Exalted, and Glorious.'' Thereupon the angel said, "I am a messenger to you from Allah (to inform you) that Allah loves you as you love him (for His sake)". [Muslim].

 Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Seven are (the persons) whom Allah will give Shade of His Thrown on the Day when there would be no shade other than His Throne's Shade: A just ruler; a youth who grew up worshipping Allah; a man whose heart is attached to mosques; two persons who love and meet each other and depart from each other for the sake of Allah; a man whom an extremely beautiful woman seduces (for illicit relation), but he (rejects this offer by saying): `I fear Allah'; a man who gives in charity and conceals it (to such an extent) that the left hand does not know what the right has given; and a person who remembers Allah in solitude and his eyes well up".  [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

  1. Allah s.w.t. is so loving that He loved His slaves but it is His slaves who take for granted Allah's love for not loving Him.
    Sooooo whose the loser? us.
    if you feel that you want to be loved by Allah s.w.t. then pleased Him by earnestly carrying out all of His commands and refraining from all His prohibitions.....but
    if you feel that you don't like to be loved by Allah s.w.t so be it for He will accept your request but He never hates you.
    Allah s.w.t. is fair and justice.
