Love And Hate For Allah

As a Muslim every thing we do should be for God. No other God than Allah. That’s the reason we have to recite “Bismillaahir- Rahmaanir-Rahiim” that means, “In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful”, before we do anything.

Every thing we do in everyday life we should remember Allah, either during working, eating, drinking, sleeping, walking and others things that did not contradict with the religious teaching.

It is included in love and in hated, we should do it for Allah, no God other than Allah.

It is the highest level of pure love. If you love is not for Allah, the love has no meaning at all. If you hate is not for Allah, the hatred is not good to you, and will be dangerous to you as a servant of Al-Mighty God.

To love Allah means to love religion of Islam. Every Muslims have been taught that it is more useful for them to love for their religion sake than because of their descendant. To love because of devoted to Allah is better than love because of friendships.

Such love is the love for Allah. Such hated is for Allah. You resigned to someone that Allah has resigned for them. You hated someone that Allah has hated them. You have degraded the man that had been degraded by Allah and His Prophet PBUH.

If you chose your companions not based on the foundations that had been laid down not according to the rule of God, example for the sake of leadership, friendship, kinship, citizenship, nationality and so on, such companionship did not match with the rule laid down by Allah and His Prophet PBUH, but came down from the time of ignorant before Islam came into being that are very bad, dirty, painful which was dismiss by Allah.

Allah has ordered us to make friendship base on religion. Allah said in the al-Quran, “The believers are nothing else than brothers [in Islamic religion]. So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allah that you may receive mercy”. Al-Hujurat:10.

The love or friendship that plaited in this mortal world will be continued to the immortal world hereafter. It is not ended with the death. So in looking for a friendship we have to put this quality in our minds that will hinder us to become astray in time to come.

Allah had said in the al-Quran, “Friends on that Day will be foes one to another except Al-Muttaqin [the pious]”.Az-Zukhruf:67

That means friendship in this world will be friendship in the world hereafter. The friendship that base not on religion in this world will be foes to one another in the immortal world. Those who involved in such friendship will be sad and regretful in that world. The regretful is useless, nothing can be done any more to correct the wrong doing that has been done in this world.

Allah had said in the al-Quran, “Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a Khalil [an intimate friend]!”. Al-Furqan:28.

So our love is only for those who are faithful and piety. They are the true relative, true brothers and sisters that we should give more priority to them. That is the brothers and sisters in Islam.

If you are a Muslim man, and your wife has turned to be an apostasy you can’t love her anymore as a husband and a wife because she was an infidel to your religion. And if you are wife, and your husband became infidel, you can’t love him any more as a wife and her husband, because he was an apostasy. You as a husband or wife have to be separated, can’t stay together anymore as usual like husband and wife.

That is the boundary of love. Any how if you still love him or her you could pray to God for him or her to repentance and come back to Islam.

As Muslim we are not allow to break any brotherhood on any grounds or causes except for the sake of religion. If any disagreement broke out between two parties, they are giving three days to settle the dispute. But if after three days they still did not settle the matter, and not speak to each other, both of them are regard as sinners. For three days are enough for them to meet the ends, and settle the disagreement nicely among themselves.

The Prophet PBUH had said every Muslim is forbidden more than three days to break the brotherhood if personal interest is the source of the dispute.

But if the source of the dispute because of the religious matter the Muslim should give advice to his companion that commit the sins, because to give advice is the duty of every Muslim. But if their advice are no use, the men still doing immoral and sinful thing, than they are allow to left the man for Allah, although the man are from their family or their best friends.

We have to try very hard to help our friends who are in needed of our help. Instead for giving advice, we have to continuously to pray for Allah to help them to follow the right path that will bring them to Allah.

Please give me permission to put forward a story told by Sikh Haji Alawi, who had said, “There were two brothers who love each other very strongly for Allah and one of them made a big sin. His brother told him, “My brother whom I love, why did you that?”.

“But the one who had sinned did not change. Then his brother prayed to Allah and fasted for six months asking that the vices of the brother who had sinned be removed.

“If on the strength of our love, we can remove something dirty from our brother, it is a very high form of worship of Allah”.

The Prophet PBUH had said, “Tie the faith. Submissive to Allah, take enemy for Allah, love for Allah and hate for Allah”.

The Prophet PBUH once had left some of his wives for a month in order to educate them.

We know that many of our friends born not from our same mother womb, or not from same parentage, they are many and better than friends from the same family tree. But those people are not the true Muslim, they did not pray and go astray. They are very dangerous to be near to them, because they can drag and mislead us to the wrong path and become astray like them.

Allah had forbid us to love those who are in war with our Lord and His Prophet PBUH.

Allah had said in the Al-Quran, “Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred, the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause, than wait until Allah brings about His Decision [torment]. And Allah guides not the people who are Al-Fasiqun [the rebellious, disobedient to Allah]”.At-Taubah:24.

To those Muslim people who are not in war with Allah, we are advice better not to fall in love and be affectionately with them. They are the people who became slave to his nafs, tyrannical, cruel, and oppressive.

Allah had said, “O you who believe! Take not as Auliya [supporters and helpers] your fathers and your brothers if they prefer disbelief to Belief. And whoever of you does so, then he is one of the Zalimun [wrongdoers]”.

So the Muslim people don’t make friendly with those who became slave to their nafs and hypocrite as a faithful friends and you should not tell them any secrets of the Muslim people in fear that they will use as a weapon to destroy Islam and the people of Islam.


The whisper of Pondok Rahmat:

Embrace Islam. Extend a tuft of goodwill. A thread of love. A garland of harmony.
