TO KNOW WHAT TRUE LOVE IS
« How do I know if he is good for me or not?
And how do I know if he truly loves me or not? » she asked…
Then I answered,
« If he can’t love you in your hijab,
he can’t truly love you in anything else either.
You should be the most beautiful to him
when you are obeying your Lord.
You should be the most beautiful
when you are trying to make your way to Jannah.
And if he can’t see the beauty in that,
then his perspective of beauty is distorted.
If he can’t love you enough to help you get to Jannah,
then perhaps he doesn’t love you at all….
You know a person truly loves you for Allah’s sake
when they remind you of Allah constantly.
He will remind you,
for he would love to meet you in Jannah.
He will continue to remind you, lovingly,
to help you walk the straight path…
Know who your companions are,
for true companions will save you from an-Naar,
not dip you in it… »
*And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers. (QS. 51:55)
