The concept of Love is vast and deep. And, it's rooted within each of us. That's because LOVE is a universal reflection of one of the 99 Divine Attributes of Allah, Al-Wadud, The Most Loving! “Surely, my Lord is Most Merciful, Most Loving.” (Quran 11:90)
Anas ibn Malik reported that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: None of you has faith until he loves for his brother or his neighbor what he loves for himself (Sahih Muslim). Abu Al-Mughirah reported that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Love for people what you would love for yourself, and hate for people what you would hate for yourself (Musnad Ahmad).
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) demonstrated pure LOVE in all aspects; love to his Creator, love to his spouses, love towards the environment, and love towards all people including those who were hateful towards him.
