Love For The Sake Of Allah - My Understanding

Updated: Jan 24

By Nusrat Jahan


Recently, I pondered the phrase, 'Love for the sake of Allah.' I realised the intense emotion and power this phrase holds. You love a person, as he or she is a creation of Allah and of the same race. You love that person solely for Allah or as a means to get closer to Allah. You love that person because of the level of commitment they have towards Allah and because of their good deeds. You love them even if you don't know them that well, haven't met them, or have only done so a few times. You love that person because of his or her distinct qualities, character, and religiosity. You love them as they serve as a reminder and a reality check for you to stay on the right path and do good deeds.



For example, if you love your spouse, sometimes it's because of their goodness and the peace that they bring to your life. But at times, things do get a bit messy, and yet you choose to understand and love your spouse the same ; you do that solely for attaining the love of Allah and also because you fear Allah.
Thus, Allah says people who love each other for my sake are the most dear to me, and they will attain the highest positions in paradise. They will shine like the brightest stars in the sky.

I loved the part where you used simple language to explain the more complex ideas behind what you were looking for.
