Where is the proof for you love?

‘Abbaad ibn Mansoor, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said, “During the lifetime of the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, some people claimed that they loved Allaah The Almighty, but Allaah The Almighty wanted them to translate this claim into action. So, Allaah The Exalted Says (what means):
قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ
وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ.
{Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allaah, then follow me, [so] Allaah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allaah is Forgiving and Merciful.} [Quran 3:31]”

Likewise, the Jews and the Christians claimed that they are the children and beloved ones of Allaah The Almighty:
وَقَالَتِ ٱلْيَهُودُ وَٱلنَّصَٰرَىٰ نَحْنُ أَبْنَٰٓؤُا۟ ٱللَّهِ وَأَحِبَّٰٓؤُهُۥ ۚ
{But the Jews and the Christians say, “We are the children of Allaah and His beloved.”} [Quran 5:18],

But Allaah The Almighty Says to them (what means):
قُلْ فَلِمَ يُعَذِّبُكُم بِذُنُوبِكُم ۖ بَلْ أَنتُم بَشَرٌۭ مِّمَّنْ خَلَقَ ۚ
يَغْفِرُ لِمَن يَشَآءُ وَيُعَذِّبُ مَن يَشَآءُ ۚ
{Say, “Then why does He punish you for your sins?” Rather, you are human beings from among those He has created. He forgives whom He wills, and He punishes whom He wills.} [Quran 5:18]

In this verse, Allaah The Almighty refers to the fact that love has certain signs, including the fact that one does not punish those whom he loves. Hence, the absence of these signs means that the claim of being loved by Allaah The Almighty is false.

If you truly love Allaah The Almighty, then provide the evidence.

Where is the evidence of your true love for Allaah The Almighty?

How can we claim that we love Allaah The Almighty and then disobey Him?

My dear brother and sister in Islam,

Do you really want to love Allaah The Almighty and to be loved by Him?

Do you really aspire to this love that will quench your thirst forever?

Are you ready to do whatever it takes to attain this great honor?

Do you want a remedy for your heart to stop committing sins and misdeeds?

Allaah The Almighty, and say what Moosa, may Allaah exalt his mention, said (which means):
وَعَجِلْتُ إِلَيْكَ رَبِّ لِتَرْضَىٰ.
{and I hastened to You, my Lord, that You be pleased} [Quran 20:84]

In this case, Allaah The Almighty will protect you, thank you for this sacrifice, and reward you greatly.

What are you waiting for?

Do you not want to be loved by Allaah The Almighty?
