“What does it mean to love someone for the sake of Allah?
If someone really loves you for the sake of Allah, he would persist in advising you, and you would do the same. Persevering in advising one another is very rare between those who claim to love each other, this love might have some sincerity in it, but it is not complete, because we try to make an allowance for the other, afraid that the other person will become angry, that he will flee……and so on. It is in light of this that (you can see that) the cost of loving someone for the sake of Allah is that each person shows sincerity towards the other by advising him, always and forever telling him to do good and preventing him from bad - he is more constant in advising him than that person’s own shadow is close - for this reason it has been authentically reported that when parting from one another, one of the habits of the Companions was that one of them would read to the other,
“By the Time! Indeed, mankind is in loss. Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience” (Al-Quran, Al-Asr)” - Albani
Waste not, nor misuse, your life. Time Through the Ages bears witness that nothing remains but Faith and Good Deeds, and the teaching of Truth And the teaching of Patience and Constancy. But for those, Man against Time is in loss! - The Meaning of Al-Quran - Abdullah Yusof Ali. * Two giraffes “necking” each other where they fight to establish dominance. There is no “loving” between them although it would appear that they were close. * #sarinaothmanphotography#giraffes#necking#fight#dominance#wildlife#wildifephotography#naturephotography#natgeowild#safari#masaimara#tree#shade#gamedrive#kenya#travel#maratriangle @acsafaris
