True Love

Say, [O Muhammad], "If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your relatives, wealth which you have obtained, commerce wherein you fear decline, and dwellings with which you are pleased are more beloved to you than Allah and His Messenger and jihad in His cause, then wait until Allah executes His command. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people." (9:24)

"None of you truly believes until I am more beloved to himself than his parents, his children, and all of mankind."(Bukhari and Muslim)

Narrated Anas: The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of faith:

1.The one to whom Allah and His Apostle becomes dearer than anything else.

2.Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah's sake.

3.Who hates to revert to Atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the fire". (Bukhari)
