All things Muslim - incredible stories & positive vibes

Looking at Love in the Qu’ran and Hadith

In the midst of Valentine’s Day hysteria, we’re going to cast aside the commercialisation of this card-and-flowers flogging holiday in favour of a more significant look at love.

That’s not to say V-Day can’t be fun, but it’s important to remember that love is something that exists all the time, and some of the greatest truths about love and kindness can be found in the Qu’ran or in Hadith.

Here are a few quotes on the subject.

Say: If you should love Allah, then follow me. Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, for Allah is forgiving and merciful. (Surah Al Imran 3:31)

None of you has faith until he loves for his brother or his neighbor what he loves for himself. (Sahih Bukhari 13)

You will not enter Paradise until you believe and you will not believe until you love each other. Shall I show you something that, if you did, you would love each other? Spread peace between yourselves. (Sahih Muslim 54)

Allah the Exalted said: Those who love each other for the sake of My glory will be upon pulpits of light and they will be envied by the prophets and the martyrs. (Sunan At-Tirmidhi 2390)

Love for the people what you love for yourself and you will be a believer. Behave well with your neighbors and you will be a Muslim. (Sunan Ibn Majah 4217)

Then love for your brother what you love for yourself. (Musnad Ahmad 16219)

Treat women nicely, for a woman is created from a rib, and the most curved portion of the rib is its upper portion, so, if you should try to straighten it, it will break, but if you leave it as it is, it will remain crooked. So treat women nicely. (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
