Hadith Perspective on Love

On the authority of Mu’adh ibn Jabal, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O Allah, I ask you for good deeds and avoidance of evil deeds and love of the poor. Forgive me and have mercy on me. If you intend to put people to trial, then take me away unscathed. I ask you for your love, the love of those who love you, and the love of good deeds that bring me closer to your love.”

عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ فِعْلَ الْخَيْرَاتِ وَتَرْكَ الْمُنْكَرَاتِ وَحُبَّ الْمَسَاكِينِ وَأَنْ تَغْفِرَ لِي وَتَرْحَمَنِي وَإِذَا أَرَدْتَ فِتْنَةَ قَوْمٍ فَتَوَفَّنِي غَيْرَ مَفْتُونٍ أَسْأَلُكَ حُبَّكَ وَحُبَّ مَنْ يُحِبُّكَ وَحُبَّ عَمَلٍ يُقَرِّبُ إِلَى حُبِّكَ
