Love in the Qur’an

Love is an inherent part of ourselves. Love resides in our heart but manifests outwardly in various forms. Love can build our characters and dictate our actions.

As a muslim, let see what Allah says about love in the Qur’an.

Love to worldly enjoyment

“It was made attractive to people, the love of things they crave; women, sons, heaped-up heaps of gold and silver, branded horses, cattle and will-tilled land. But that is for the enjoyment of this worldly life, But Allah, with Him is the beautiful homecoming” (Surah Imrân 3:14)

“They (the disbelievers) love this worldly life more than the Hereafter” (Surah Nahl 16:107)

Sacrificing what is loved

“You will not attain righteousness, unless you give of that which you love” (Surah Imrân 3:92)

The believers’ love

“And yet there are some people, who replace Allah with rivals, loving them as Allah is loved. But the believers love Allah more intensely” (Surah Al-Baqarah 2:165)

“O you believe  … Allah has made you love the Faith, and made it so beautiful in your hearts, and has made you hate disbelief, immorality and rebelliousness. These are the righteous. This is grace and bounty, from Allah, as Allah is All-knowledgeable and All-Wise” (Surah Hujurat 49:6-8)

“Say (O Mohammed) “If you do love Allah, follow me, Allah will love you, and forgive your sins, as Allah is All-Forgiving, All-Merciful”. Surah Imrân (3:31)
