To have love for some one for the sake of ALLAH’s pleasure is also a grand act for which much merit and many rewards have been promised “to love for the sake of ALLAH” means loving some one not for worldly gain, but because he is more religious and pious or he is busy in serving the cause of DIYN ( in availing islam with his power or else). Such love has been called “love for ALLAH”.
Having love for ALLAH’s pious and good bondsmen is actually an outcome of one’s love for ALLAH, so it earns thesame rewards and merits as the later; because of this love ALLAH includes this lover in his beloved people.
According to a hadith, some one asked Our blessed and exalted prophet SAW “when shall come the day of judgement???” Our prophet SAW asked him “what preparation have you made for the day??? the man said “Nothing but i have love for ALLAH and for his messenger.” the prophet said ” you Shall be on the day with whom you love”.
There many a hadith of the same import showing that having love for the sake of ALLAH is an act of fabulous merit which grants One the opportunity of doing good in this world and being in exalted company in the hereafter.
Hence, one should love good people for the sake of ALLAH and with the intend of becoming good oneself and earning ALLAH’s pleasure, as a poet once said “i love good peoples and although am not one of them” may ALLAH grant me goodness too.
Hadith tells us that when some One loves his brother in faith, he must tells him of his love.
Example: One day a man sitting with Our holy prophet when another One passed the sitting One said, “O messenger of ALLAH! I love this man” the prophet said, “have you told him???” the man said “No” the prophet said, “tell him!” the man rush to his feet and when to the man who was passing by and said, “i love you for for the sake of ALLAH.” he said, “may ALLAH whom you love, loves you in return.
“I AS A BLOGGER AM TO UTILIZE MY UXORIOUS WISHING TO YOU HAVE GOOD DAY. AND TO IMFORM YOU THAT ” I LOVE FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH TO YOU ALL!!!”
