Spread the Love

Islam teaches us to be loving to others, regardless if they chose to be evil to us. This teaching also extends having a regulated affection and hatred toward people – finding a middle ground – which arms us for the changing circumstances of this world.

An expert from “Don’t Be Sad” by Aaidh ibn Abdullah al-Qarni:

“Lend your attention to each matter in proportion to its importance. In any given situation do not exaggerate mountains from mole hills; rather, keep in mind your objectivity and fairness. Do not follow false suspicion or the deceitful illusion of the mirage, but be balanced. Listen to the balance of love and hate as explained by the Prophet (Blessings and Peace be upon him):

“Love the one who is beloved to you in due moderation, for perhaps the day will come when you will abhor him. And hate the one whom you detest in due moderation, for perhaps the day will arrive when you will come to love him.”

Perhaps Allah will make friendship between you and those whom you hold as enemies. And Allah has power [over all things], and Allah is Of-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  (Qur’an 60: 7)”
