Hadith Explanation

One Whom Allah Loves

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “By Allah, Allah will never throw one who loves Him and whom He loves into the Fire.” [Musnad Ahmad]

Love is a reciprocal thing. Suppose you love someone from the bottom of your heart but regardless of what you do for them they do not reciprocate your feelings. While you look at them adoringly, they look past you as though you were invisible. You put everything on the side to serve them day and night but they don’t acknowledge your selfless love or any of your sacrifices. You stand by them through thick and thin but they don’t value your feelings. You always try to do what pleases them but they don’t ask for your opinion. They say about you things that are untrue and listen silently while your reputation is trashed. How long will your love last?

Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) has shown His intense and unceasing love for me; but have I loved Him in return? Have I given preference to Allah, His feelings and His opinions?

May Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) help me to become such that I reciprocate His love. “Those who believe are overflowing in their love for Allah.” [Quran: Surah Baqrah, Ayat 165]

May my love for Him become greater than my love of my own desires and may I value His opinion more than that of people.
