Visiting each other for the Sake of Allah

Abu Idris Al-Khawlani said, "I entered the Damascus mosque and there was a young man with a beautiful mouth and white teeth sitting with some people. When they disagreed about something, they referred it to him and proceeded from his statement. I inquired about him, and it was said, 'This is Muadh Ibn Jabal.' The next day I went to the noon-prayer, and I found that he had preceded me to the noon prayer and I found him praying."


Abu Idris continued, "I waited for him until he had finished the prayer. Then I came to him from in front of him and greeted him and said, 'by Allah! I love you for the sake Allah!' he said, 'by Allah?' I said, 'by Allah.' he said, 'by Allah?' I said, 'by Allah.' al-Khawlani continued, "He took me by the upper part of my cloak and pulled me to him and said: 'Rejoice! I heard the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, saying: "Allah, the Blessed and Exalted, said, 'My love is obliged for those who love each other for My sake, and those who sit with each other for My sake, and those who visit each other for My sake, and those who give to each other generously for My sake.'"
