As-salaamu ‘alaykum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh,
In these blessed days of Ramadaan, our Imaan is soaring, our tongues are moist with the rememberance of Allaah, our limbs bare the signs of fatique from hunger and thirst and our hearts are ever hopeful of the rewards awaiting us…and we say, as we should say everyday…We love our Lord!
Bishr Ibn Al-Sarri said: “It is not one of the signs of love that you hate what your beloved loves!”
Yahya Ibn Mu’adh said: “The one who claims to love Allaah yet does not preserve His limits is not truthful”
Al-Hasan said: “The companions of the prophet (sallaallahu ‘alayhi wa salam) said, ‘We Love our Lord a great deal,’ So Allaah desired to appoint a sign proving love of Him, so he revealed this verse”
قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللّهُ
Say: “If you Love Allaah then follow me, Allaah will love you…”
