True Love of Allaah – A glimpse at Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim’s Nooniyyah

“The condition of love is that one must agree with whoever he loves;
He does this out of love for him, without disobedience.
So if you claim love for him,
But you differ with what he loves, then you are a liar.
Do you love the enemies of your beloved whilst claiming love for him?
That is not possible.
Likewise, you show obstinate enmity to those whom he loves;
Where is the love O brother of Shaytaan?
Worship is not other than oneness of love;
Along with submission of the heart and the limbs.”

Up until he said,

“Indeed, we have seen a sect claiming Islaam;
But they are upon a clear illustration of Shirk.
They have made for Allaah associates and they are deluded;
Into loving them equally along with Him without any authority.”
