The most exalted feeling given to us by the Most High is love. Each soul carries within itself its particle, which can inspire us to any feats. In Islam, love is a unique feeling that is experienced not only by a person. The most perfect love is love for the Supreme Creator and love for Him.

Love in Islam

Love in Islam

The highest degree of love is love for the Most High
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

«When one person loves another with sincere, divine love for the sake of the Most High and only, then he will feel the sweetness of faith.»

(Hadith from Anas, collection of the hadith of al-Bukhari, Muslim and al-Tirmidhi)

Today we see that people are trying to prove their feelings with words, poems and songs. And later it turns out that young people, even when they marry, just want the beloved to take care of them. They take care of their egoism and do not think about others, do not want to yield to each other, and marriages collapse.

In Islam, everything is different. From a young age, boys are taught to be men, and girls are taught the idea that happiness in the family will depend on its wisdom and serenity. When marrying, young Muslims are ready for life together and for the hardships that they will overcome together, for the sake of Allah.

For those who love each other in My Majesty, they are minarets from the world, and the prophets and those who fall for the faith will envy them. (Hadith al-kudsi)

Nikah and love in Islam

Nikah and love in Islam

Nikah is a marriage contract between a man and a woman based on the Koran and the Sunnah.
Marriage is a natural form of relationship between a woman and a man. This is the only way people learn to solve problems shoulder to shoulder.

Contrary to common misconceptions, marriage in Islam does not lock a girl in four walls and does not make her an eternal housewife. Love in Islam is perfect, and it enables development and growth for both spouses. In fact, only in marriage, sincere believers find consolation, joy, tranquility and grace.

Mutual understanding always prevails in a Muslim family. Here they treat each other warmly, to their children, to their relatives and neighbors. But the most cordial relations are true love for the sake of the Most High, of course, between the spouses, for it is said in the Holy Quran that «… they [the wives] are clothes for you and you [husbands] are clothes for them …» * (The Holy Koran 2: 187).

One of the Creator’s names is Loving. May Allah Almighty make you loving one another for His sake

Love one another for the sake of Him Who created you! :-)
