Ibn al-Qayim said in a poem:
The love of the Beloved must be unconditionally returned If you claim love yet oppose the Beloved, then you love is but a pretence. You love the enemies of your Beloved and still seek love in return. You fight the beloved of your Beloved. Is this Love or the following of Shaytan? True devotion is nothing but total submission of body and soul to One Love.

Source: al-Walaa' wal Baraa' according to the Aqeedah of the Salaf Muhammad Saeed al-Qahtani

wa alaykum us-Salaam

its just basically means that truly loving Allah means obeying Him ... and there's no such thing as loving Allah, yet opposing Him<---if that is the case, than this love isn't really true..


i guess another way to understand ibn ul-Qayyims words is to compare loving and revering someone, eg a friend, etc. i.e if you love them, then you do everything they do, and you don't really want to go against their word, or opposite them. naturally, because of your love for them, you want to follow and be like them...
