Love: I'm In Love

LOVE LOVE AND LOVE! This is the word that most people young or old are uttering nowadays. Do we really know the meaning of love? When girls are small they cry, "Toys, toys!" and when they grow up they cry "Boys, boys!"

Love is a disease that no doctor has found a cure for, but our beloved Creator, Allah Ta'ala says in the Quran, " Tell the believing men to lower their gazes and guard their private parts. This is purer for them.Indeed Allah is acquanted with what they do. And tell the believing women to lower their gazes and guard their private parts"

(Surah Noor V:231-232)

It all starts with a look, then a smile, then a word, then a gift, then a meeting and finally and illegitimate child! Half of the population has been infected with this disease or must I say they have been inflicted with a divine punishment. It is said that the condition of the people of Jahannam and the (haraam) lovers are alike. Just as the people of Jahannam will be restless in Hell-Fire,

"They will neither be alive nor dead (in Jahannam)" -Surah A'laa V:13-

so too are the so called lovers. They lose their appetite and sleep. They are restless and uneasy.Infact, they are making themselves the coal of Hell-Fire. Why are we destroying eternel pleasure for a few moments of fake pleasure?

But dear readers and servants of Allah Ta'ala, if you have fallen in the trap of Syaitaan don't think that you are doomed to Hell. Surely our Lord Allah is the Most Forgiving and Most Merciful! If we sin and continue sinning but then we repent sincerely, Allah Ta'laa shall forgive us and He won't mind to do so. Don't lose hope in the mercy of ALLAH.

It is never too late. Our Lord Allah is waiting for us to turn towards Him. Let us repent!

Just sit and think....The one whose face is admired so much today, is the face that will be like a geographical map tomorrow. Today we have made our heart a corpse by placing a corpse in it. If we can love the creation unlimitedly, so why not the Creator? The one who created you, me and everyone else.

Small advice for everyone:
If you desire to go towrds the garden (of eternity - Jannat) ,
then take provision the protection of your gaze"

Jannat is 2 steps ahead. The first is on your desire (nafs) and the second is in Jannat!

Remember Allah enters a desolate broken heart and he floods it with happiness. If we think about our old age, we will not give our heart to anyone but to the Creator of our heart. Remember, death comes without knocking. So.....

Don't destroy your life on the sandy body of someone..
Sacrifice your youth for the One who gave you youth....
And I'm explaining this not to anyone but the heart....
