Assalaamu-alaykum,

Came across this the other day...I think it sums up mahhabba for the sake of Allaah perfectly...

"The definition of friendship: [it is the middle point] between two extremes.What makes one friend sad makes the other sad too. What makes one happy makes the other happy too. Any relationship less than this is not friendship. Anyone who answers to this description is a friend. A man may be the friend of someone who is not his friend for a man can love someone who hates him. This is the case above all with fathers and their sons, brother and brother, husband and wife, and all those in whom friendship has become burning love. Not every friend is a counsellor although every counsellor, by giving advice shows himself to be a friend"

Wassalaamu-alaykum

wayaa'kum

If I remember correctly, then the poet was Ibn Hazm al Andaloosee in his Al-Akhlâq wa’l-Siyar...

And another...

"O my brothers, what can we say?
Has our sadness led us to tears...
Led us to tears because of a departing friend,
Because of the love and brotherhood?"

(from the poem 'Yaa Ikhwaatee')

May Allaah make us unite with our companions of this world and Inshaa'Allaah of the next life, soon-aameen.
