al-wadoodThe Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلّم  said, narrating from His Lord, “My love is incumbent for those who love one another for my sake; those who sit with one another for My sake; those who visit each other for My sake; and those who spend on each other for My sake.” [Musnad Ahmad]

On being asked how one loves others (e.g. parents, siblings, friends etc) only for Allah Ta’ala, Mufti Ebrahim Salejee of Ispingo Beach said,

Regularly meditate over the fact that Allah alone is eternal. If you love anything for Him then that love will be lasting and if it is that you love something not for the sake of Allah then your love will remain just till you or that thing remains
