Love of ALLAH and His Prophet

Hadith & Seerah, The Teachings of the Holy Prophet, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS)

Hadrat Anas (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH said, there are three qualities and whosoever possesses them, will be favored with the sweetness of Eeman. One who holds ALLAH and his Messenger dearer than any thing else (i.e. who does not love anybody or anything more than ALLAH and his Messenger). One who loves a human being for the sake of ALLAH alone (i.e without any expectation of any worldly gain – but on this consideration alone that he is a godly person). One who has been rescued from Kufr (whether from the very beginning or through repentance) and after that he dislikes returning to Kufr as much as being cast into Hell. [Bukhari, Muslim, Hayat-ul-Muslimeen]
