One who loves other for the sake of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta`ala)

Many hadith describe the status of two people who love one another for the sake of Allah (Saw), and describe the high position in Paradise which He has promised them and the great honour which He will bestow upon them on the Day when mankind is resurrected to meet the Rabb of the Worlds: Among them is the hadith which describes the seven whom Allah (Saw) will shade on the Day when there is no shade but His:

A just leader;

A youth who grows up worshipping Allah (Saw)

A man who is deeply attached to the masjid

Two men who love one another for the sake of Allah (Saw) meeting for His sake and parting for His sake

A man who is called by a beautiful woman and says, I fear Allah (Saw)

A man who gives charity in secret such that his left hand does not know what his right hand is doing

A man who remembers Allah (Saw) when he is alone and his eyes fill with tears." (Bukhari and Muslim)

The two who love one another for the sake of Allah (Saw) are clearly shown to be among those whom Allah (Saw) will shelter and upon whom He will shower His mercy and kindness. What a great honour! It is enough honour for those who love one another for the sake of Allah (Saw) that their Almighty Rabb will greet them on the Day of Resurrection and say to them: "Where are those who loved one another for My glory? Today I will shade them on the Day when there is no shade but Mine." (Muslim) Such is the magnificent honour and tremendous reward that will be bestowed upon those who truly loved one another for the sake of Allah (Saw), on that awesome Day.

Love for the sake of Allah (Saw), and not for the sake of anything else in this life which is filled with greed, desires and interests, is very difficult, and none can attain it except the one who is pure of heart, for whom this world is as nothing compared to the pleasure of Allah (Saw).

Allah (Saw) gives to those who love one another for His sake a gift which is even greater than this status and blessing: that is His precious love which is very difficult to attain. This is proven by the hadith of Abu Hurayrah (r a) in which the Prophet (peace be up on him) said:
"A man went to visit a brother of his in another village. Allah (Saw) sent an angel to wait for him on the road. When the man came along, the angel asked him, 'Where do you intend to go?' He said, 'I am going to visit a brother of mine who lives in this village.' The angel asked, 'Have you done him any favour (for which you are now seeking repayment)?' He said, 'No. I just love him for the sake of Allah (Saw).' The angel told him, I am a messenger to you from Allah (Saw), sent to tell you that He loves you as you love your brother for His sake."' (Muslim)

What a great love, that raises a man to a position where Allah (Saw) loves him and is pleased with him.

Islam goes even further in spreading love in the rightly guided Muslim society by telling the Muslim that if he loves his brother, he should tell him. The Prophet (peace be up on him) said: "If a man loves his brother, let him tell him that he loves him." [Reported by Abu Dawud and al-Tirmidhi, who said it is a sahih hadith].

The Prophet (peace be up on him) understood the impact of this strong, pure love in building societies and nations, so he never let any occasion pass without advocating this love and commanding the Muslims to announce their love for one another, in order to open hearts and spread love and purity among the ranks of the Ummah..
