True Love

Life in the world is short and transitory. It is filled with fleeting moments, empty feelings and temporary attachments. We attach ourselves to people and things. Not a day goes by when we don’t desire or wish to make something ours truly and forever. We fall in love often might that be with a friend, family, relative or someone before marriage. We attach our anticipations to them and find condolence in their words and acts they do for us. Everything they do for us is so intriguing and beautiful that in the process of loving them we forget ourselves. We forget who we are? What’s our worth? What was the purpose of coming to this world? Where do we have to go from here? Will we spend our life seeking the love of others or loving our dear ones in return? And in the end is there any creator who is the reason we are alive and blessed with so many things and loving relations? Does He have any some obligations too? Does He deserve to be loved too? To be remembered day and night and called upon. Yes am talking about the love for Allah.  The one true love. Any kind of love for a person in the world is due to delusions and ignorance and temporary.  So such a person is required to first and foremost strengthen their Tawheed and reliance upon Allah and secondly to increase in worship and busy themselves with it, so much so that they do not have any spare time letting their minds wander and think about temporary love of this world. Build ikhlaas in abundance. This is because if the heart is filled with ikhlaas for the sake of Allaah, there will be no space left for any unlawful love to be present, rather this only happens to a heart that is empty and has no ikhlaas whatsoever.
