Every love that leads away from His love is in fact a punishment; only a love that leads to His love is a heartfelt and pure love.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah
The word “love” in the Quran appears on over 90 places but interestingly it doesn’t define the word love, but speaks about the very first consequence of love… commitment. Islam talks about commitment, if you truly love something or someone, you commit. If you do not then your claim of “real love” is not real at all.
Shaykh Yassir Fazaga (via islamicgirl
And one day, God-willing, when our children will ask,
“What was your story, Mama and Baba?”
I would want them to see the best of you,
and know you as I have loved you.
I will tell them that Baba was afraid,
because he wasn’t good enough for Mama.
But that Mama was strong and sought what she wanted,
because her heart knew it was us from the very first day.
Let His mercy heal you.
