“They are people who loved one another for Allah’s sake…”

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Among Allah’s servants are people who are neither Prophets nor martyrs, but whom the Prophets and martyrs will deem fortunate because of their high status with Allah.”

They asked: “O Messenger of Allah! Inform us of who they are.”

He said: “They are people who loved each other for Allah’s sake, without being related to one another or being tied to one another by the exchange of wealth. By Allah, their faces will be luminous and they will be light upon light. They will feel no fear when the people will be feeling fear and they will feel no grief when the people will be grieving.”

Ya Haqq!

Note:  This has always been considered a reference to the Sufis, who emulate the loving-kindness of the blessed Prophet (peace be upon him) as the perfect example of such attributes.

    Selfless love is a beautiful thing!

  2. “O ye who believe! Whoso of you becometh a renegade from his religion, (know that in his stead) Allah will bring a people whom He loveth and who love Him, humble toward believers, stern toward disbelievers, striving in the way of Allah, and fearing not the blame of any blamer. Such is the grace of Allah which He giveth unto whom He will. Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing.” (5 Surat-ul-Maeeda . Aayat54)
