Yes, you heard correctly! In this article we consider three questions and the answers to them, and then will look for solutions to these responses.
First question. Do we love Allah the Almighty?
Answer: I can hear you say, "What a question, of course, we love Allah more than anything else!" I think that if you drive across the globe, it will be impossible to find a man who considers himself a Muslim who negatively responded to this question and our common answer to this question is: "Of course we love" - as it is a necessary part of faith. The necessity and importance of this love emphasized in many hadiths, here is just one of them:
كُنَّ من ثلاث:قال -وسلم عليه اللهصلى -النبي أن مالك بن أنس عن سواهما مما ليهإ أحب ورسوله الله يكون نأ:لإيمان احلاوة وجد فيه
From Anas (may Allah be pleased with him), the Prophet (Allah bless him and peace) said: He who has these three things, he will feel the taste of faith: who loves Allah and His Messenger more than anything else, ...
As a result, repeating our generalized answer: "Yes, we love, praise be to Allah!"
May the Almighty Allah increases our love for him day by day! Amen
The second question. Does Allah Almighty love us?
Answer: Logically thinking a lot about this question, we can come to many, both positive and negative answers. Let us discuss it together about the importance of this love, using this example:
Someone loving, offer to get married, and if it turns out that the party is not love, then or weddings do not take place at all, or, if held, family happiness will not work.
As a result, due to the fact that I believe that there was not anyone who would give a precise answer, our common response: "I do not know, but really want to be loved by Allah".
May Allah make us of those whom He loves! Amen!
3rd question: Do we want to have our sins forgiven and erased?
Answer: In my opinion, we all want to have our sins forgiven, as the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him peace) said: "خطاء آدم ابن كل" ie "Every son of Adam makes mistakes". [Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah], so there is no person who does not need to be forgiven.
So our answer: "Yes, we want our sins were forgiven and erased
Now, we ask the Almighty Allah about the right answer to these three questions, what he tells us:
الله فاتبعونى يحببكم الله ويغفر لكم ذنوبكم والله غفور رحيم قل إن كنتم تحبون
"Say, [O Muhammad], "If you should love Allah , then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful". (The Quran, 3:31)
For all of us who respond to the first question that we love God, who claim to the second question that we want God loved us too, and on the third answer that we want forgiveness and erase our sins, verse of the Quran gives us a single solution. This solution is truly obey (follow) to his Beloved Messenger.
وما ءاتىكم الرسول فخذوه وما نهىكم عنه فانتهوا
"And whatever the Messenger has given you - take; and what he has forbidden you - refrain from". (The Quran, 59:7)
So, the happiness in this world and the beyond is possible only through following the Last Prophet (peace be upon him), causes troubles in this life and the afterlife, only because of separation from the Shariah and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Peace and blessings be upon him, his family and companions...
