It is not that Islam doesn’t believe in love so Muslims don’t celebrate Valentines Day and the likes. Rather, the concept of love is SO STRONG in Islam that it refuses to acknowledge anything that downgrades and cheapens this wonderful emotion.
The concept of love is SO WISE in Islam that it protects the dignity, honor and rights of both the man and the woman, and doesn’t let one run away after ‘having their bit of fun.’
The concept of love is SO SACRED in Islam that even feeding your wife a morsel of food is a rewarded, blessed deed. That being good to your husband can be a doorway to Paradise!
The concept of love is SO PRACTICAL in Islam that it is not dependant on gimmicks and commercial promotion. Rather, it is lived through honesty, gentleness and affection each day of the year, each moment of life.
Actually the concept of love is SO AMAZING in Islam that it doesn’t end with this Dunya, rather it binds the hearts that love each other in His Obedience in this life and beyond! A story that perseveres in Dunya and then will enjoy permanent bliss in the hereafter.
And how shall it not be, when Islam is itself from AL-WADOOD, the Most Loving, the Source of all love, the Bestower of this wonderful gift!
There is no faith that advocates love more justly, more deeply than Islam. It celebrates it… wholly and eternally, and doesn’t need the world to say when exactly and how exactly it should be expressed!
Where do you take your definition of LOVE from?
