* (the most firm bonds of belief are: supporting others for the sake of allah, showing enmity for the sake of allah, loving for the sake of allah, hating for the sake of allah the almighty ) (sahih aj jame' 2539).

 

love for the sake of allah means loving others just in the way and for the cause of allah the almighty, not for other objectives, just like the following verse of the holy quran {and those who strive in our (cause),- we will certainly guide them to our paths} al-ankabout 69. i.e. they strive in the way, for the cause and for the sake of allah alone.

 

* (you can taste the sweet flavor of belief if you apply three things: loving allah and his prophet more than others, loving others just for the sake of allah, and hating returning back to disbelief as much as you hate falling in the fire ), narrated by al-bukhari 6941.

al-qadhi said: love is a tendency toward something for certain perfection therein; therefore, if the believer acknowledged that the real perfection is just for allah, and that any perfection observed by him in himself or in others is just a grant from allah, his love will be sincere for the sake, in the cause, and in the way of allah, and this entails the full obedience to allah the almighty; accordingly, love is construed as a wish for compliance which entails following the prophet peace be upon him.

 

* (allah will overshadow seven kinds of persons at the day of judgment, wherein there is no shadow except his ….. two persons loved each other for the sake of allah, met and separated under such love …..), narrated by al-bukhari, 1423, and muslim.

 

islam is the religion of love for the sake of allah, and hate for the sake of allah; because the heart is always attached to a beloved, and if allah the almighty alone was not his beloved and worshiped, the heart will be attached to others i.e. polytheism; therefore, love for the sake of allah is the religion itself. the best example for this is the wife of al-aziz (the ruler's wife), when she was polytheist, she done her known action (i.e. seduced yusuf) although she was married, while yusuf was loyal & faithful in his love to allah the almighty; therefore, he escaped such seduction though he was young single slave man. allah the almighty said: {if you do love allah, follow me: allah will love you and forgive your sins} al-imran: 31

 

* (if you like to taste the sweet flavor of belief, love others for nothing but just for the sake of allah ) (good narration series), sahih aj jame' 5958.

it is mentioned in al-kashaf book that: love for the sake of allah and hate for the sake of allah are one of the most important principles of belief. love for the sake of allah entails loving his prophets and faithful believers which is conditional on following them and obeying their instructions.

 

* (if you would like to find the sweet flavor of belief, love others just for the sake of allah ), narrated by ahmad (good narration series), sahih aj jame' 6288

one of the best deeds is to love others just for their belief in allah, not for sake of getting their help or other benefits, and to hate others just for their disbelief and disobedience to allah, not for the sake of harming them i.e. to treat people just in the cause of allah. the hate in cause of allah entails hating enemies of the religion, contradicting their way, obliging ourselves to obey the orders of allah and avoiding the prohibitions. as for the enemies of allah, we should be more patient than them and remain stationed always. 

 

* (the perfect believer is the one who loves for the sake of allah, hate for the sake of allah, gives for the sake of allah and hold for the sake of allah ), narrated by abu dawood (sahih aj jame' 5965). i.e. loving others for the sake of allah alone not for any tendencies or self desires toward them, hating others in the cause of allah alone, for their disbelief or disobedience but not for harming them. ibn mo'ath said: the sign for knowing the true love in the cause of allah is to show no increase in kindness or decrease in unkindness.

 

* (one day, a man went to visit his friend in some village. in the way, allah has sent him an angel. the angel asked him: where are you going? the man answered: i am going to visit a brother in this village. the angel asked: do you want any interest or benefit from him? he answered: no, i just love him for the sake of allah. the angel said: i am the messenger of allah to you, allah loved you as you loved your brother ), narrated by muslim 2576.

it is narrated that ibn omar (may allah be pleased with him) said: you will not have the protection of allah and you not taste the sweet flavor of belief unless you be like this.

 

* (if you love a man for the sake of allah, it is better to tell him so that love and friendly feelings will last more ) (good narration series), sahih aj jame', 280

i.e. if you love a person for the sake of allah not for worldly benefits then tell that person that you love him in the cause of allah, because by this the friendly feelings and love will last and multiply, the muslims will be united, the corruption will be eliminated and the rancor will go away. in another prophetic narration, it is mentioned that if someone told you i love you for the sake of allah you should say: may allah love you as you loved me.

 

* (if you love a person for the sake of allah, then pay him a visit to tell him that you love him for the sake of allah ), narrated by ahmad (sahih aj jame', 281).

by informing your brother that you love him for the sake of allah you will gain his love and respect, and he will be ready to accept your advice and will disregards your defects; accordingly, the blessings will prevail.

 

* (if any of you loved his brother for the sake of allah, then it is better to tell his brother so that he can feel the same ), as-silsela as-sahiha, al-albani 1/947.

 

* (allah loves who loves al-ansar i.e. the people of medina who has supported the prophet and hates who hates them ).

 

* (the one who loves al-ansar the people of medina who supported the prophet is a true believer, and the one who hates them is a hypocrite. allah loves who loves them and hates who hates them ), narrated by at-termithi (sahih aj jame', 7629).

 

* (by allah the almighty, the one who truly love al-ansar and dies bearing such love, allah will meet him with love, and the one who hates al-ansar and dies bearing such hate, allah will meet him with hate ), narrated by ahmad (good narration series), sahih aj jame' 1979.
