Who Do You Love?

Abdullah reported that a person came to Allah’s Messenger and said to Allah’s Messenger : What is your opinion about the person who loves the people but his (acts or deeds are not identical to theirs)? Thereupon Allah’s Messenger said: A person would be along with one whom he loves. (1)

Do you love Allah and His Messenger ﷺ? Or do you love actors, singers, and vloggers?

On the Day of Judgement, no one will want to identify with the nonmuslims, for even a second. But in this Dunya, many of us unfortunately fall into the trap of watching their shows and listening to their music. We walk like them, talk like them, and live like them, allowing their lifestyles to influence ours.

Ibn ’Umar narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “He who imitates any people (in their actions) is considered to be one of them.” (2)

Loving the believers in this Dunya and following their path means being with them in the Akhirah. Loving the Kuffaar and following them in this Dunya means being with them in the Akhirah.

May Allah grant us success in both worlds. Ameen.
