We need to know who to love. The person we are obliged (fard) to love is our Holy Prophet (SAW) because he is the beloved of Allah (JJ). “Mahammadun Habibullah”. Habibullah means the person Allah loves. You do not need to love everybody. Muslims love each other, believers love each other, but we need not love those who insult or are against Islam, Muslims, Allah, and the Prophet (SAW), until they let go of what they are doing and love the one we love. Then you can love them, otherwise you have no obligation.
Because they are cursing, insulting, and mocking the one people love. People are with the one they love. When someone is with them, Allah forbid, then you never know how that one will pass away in the last breath. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) says, “A person does not truly believe until he loves what I love and dislikes what I dislike.” What our Holy Prophet loves is clear. He loves Allah. He does not like Shaitan.
As we said, when we love those who love Allah then we are with them. The beloved servants of Allah are the saint (awliya) servants, believer (mumin) servants, and good people. Those He dislikes are devils (shaitans). Who is a devil? There are devils from humans and devils from jinns. They are those who disobey Him, and who battle with Allah. They are devils. Loving them is dangerous. Saying you love them is dangerous.
People are with those whom they love, therefore that danger is with them. Before you know it you have become like them. That is why you need to be careful. You need to say all the time, “We are not happy with this. We are not content with what is being done. We are not OK with this person,” so you may protect your ego, protect yourself, and stay away from evil. Because whoever enters the fire will certainly burn too.
Do not say nothing would happen to me! When you hear ill words, you need to leave that gathering. People should know that you are not happy with that. The next time they are with you they will not say such things. If they do, you need to leave that gathering again. Allah Azza wa Jalla says in the Koran: “If you hear an ill saying, an ill word against Allah, turn your face from them, do not give them heed.” May Allah always make us be together with those who love Him Inshallah.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
