Brothers and sisters, we always hear this lovely quotation
~i LoVe YoU fOr ThE sAkE oF ALLAH @ uHiBbUkUm FILLAH~
Well, one of the most prominent distinguishing features of the true Muslim is his love for his friends and brothers/ sisters in faith, a love that is untainted by any worldly interests or ulterior motives. this is true brotherly love, whose purity is derived from the light of Islamic guidance. its effect on the behaviour of Muslims is quite unique in the history of human relationships.
The bond that links a Muslim to his brother, regardless of race, colour or language, is the bond of faith in Allah:
"The Believers are but a single brotherhood..." (Surah Al-Hujurat:10)
The brotherhood of faith is the strongest of bonds between hearts and minds. It comes as no surprise that this unique brotherhood bears fruits of love that are amazingly sublime, pure, deep and lasting...=). Islam calls it "love for the sake of Allah", in which the true Muslim finds the sweetness of faith:
"there are 3 things that whoever attains them will find the sweetness of faith: if Allah and His Messenger are dearer to him than anyone else; if he loves a person solely for the sake of Allah; and if he would hate to return to kufr after Allah has rescued him from it, as much as he would hate to be thrown into the Fire." (Bukhari and Muslim)
Lets start loving HIM! ^_^
