Origin of Love

If you read the Qur’an, you will find confirmation of the place from which pure, noble love originates.

You will find it discussed in: 

1. The context of da’wah, the purpose of which is to rekindle and arouse human hearts: 

“Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” (Surah Aali Imran 3:31)

2. The description of believers: 

“And [yet], among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love Allah. But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah. And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is severe in punishment”. (Surah al Baqarah 2:165)

3. The description of the relationship between the believers and their Lord and Sustainer: 

“O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion – Allah will bring forth [in place of them] a people He will love and who will love Him [who are] humble toward the believers, powerful against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the blame of a critic. That is the favor of Allah; He bestows it upon whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.” (Sruah al Maa’idah 5:54)

4. The discussion of good and evil: 

“And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw [yourselves] with your [own] hands into destruction [by refraining]. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.” (Surah Al Baqarah 2:195)

“Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.” (Surah al Baqarah 2:190)
