Love

The Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wasallam said, “None of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.” [Bukhari and Muslim]

Our love for others is not only to love for them the aspects of this dunya (good health, security, prosperity, etc.), but to also love for them the most dear aspects to our hearts regarding the deen: the love for firm belief, the love for staying away from sins and earning reward, the love for jannah. Our love for others encourages us to give them naseeha, to advise them to wear hijab, to call them to all aspects of Islam.

What ways can you think of to show your love for your brother, for your sister? And when was the last time you manifested this love?
