What should you do if you love someone for the sake of Allah?

عن أنس بن مالك – رضِي الله عنه – أنَّ رجلاً كان عند النبيِّ – صلَّى الله عليه وسلَّم – فمرَّ به رجلٌ،
فقال: يا رسول الله، إنِّي لَأُحِبُّ هذا،
فقال له النبي – صلَّى الله عليه وسلَّم -: ((أَعلَمْتَه؟))،
قال: لا،
قال: ((أَعلِمْه))،
قال: فلَحِقَه،
فقال: إني أحبُّك في الله،
فقال: أحبَّك الذي أحببتني له،
رواه النسائي.
Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated: “A man was with the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) when another man passed by and the former said: “O Messenger of Allah! I love this man (for Allah’s sake)”.
The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) asked: “Have you informed him?” He said: “No”.
The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) then said: “Tell him (that you love him)”.
So he went up to the man and said to him: “I love you for the sake of Allah;” and the other replied: “May Allah, for Whose sake you love me, love you.” [Reported by An-Nasa’i].
