Life is a Paradise only with Love for Humanity

Everyone knows the four letter word that has practically lost all meanings among today’s generation that is Love. Countless movies, songs, and books have tried to capture this feeling in a certain time frame, or a specific amount of pages. Love has always influenced human behaviour in every culture when humans tried to knowing logic behind the feeling. What is Love? What is the true meaning of Love? Love is one of the greatest blessings that Allah gives to people. Throughout their life, everyone wants to be with those who they love. Many of Allah’s blessings and their true meanings can only be found in an environment where true love and friendship exist. Allah has created people in such a way that they enjoy being loved and loving others, and are pleased with friendships and closeness. The Quran uses several words for the term “Love” such as Rafah, Rahmah, Wudda, hub etc, are translated as “Love”. The coming of Prophet Muhammad( SAWW) is especially a manifestation of God’s rahmah and rafah. He came as Rahmat-al-lil-alamin. Paradise is a life of constant joy and love. One verse in the Qur‟an in Surat al-A„raf ,43 reveals that all malice and hatred will be removed from the hearts of those who enter Paradise. In other words, whatever prohibits love and friendship will not be found in Paradise. It means we should treat each other with hearts full of love. One of the most important characteristics of the Muslims living in paradise will be their ability to love. This great love emanates from their fear of Allah, and as a reward for their internal closeness to our Lord. Those who love and fear Allah, also establish an environment of love, mercy by making their life just like a beautiful paradise. Allah also loves His creations. His messengers, the most excellent and moral people in the world, always invited their people towards love and closeness to each other. Some people, who are not aware of the true moral values and ethics as a result, are deprived of love and friendship and live a life characterized by pain and punishment. If you love someone, you can find a way to love those who they love. Arthur Rubinstein said “Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.” The only real nation is humanity. Humanism is a doctrine of love. In the framework of Islam’s universal principles, the idea of love is very balanced. The strongest relationship among individuals that forms family, society, and nation is love. The exchange of love from existence to

humanity and from one creature to another becomes this earth a “Jannah”. Humankind “consciously” participates in this symphony of love .By developing the love in their true nature; every person should offer real help and support to others. We should protect natural laws and true spirit of love for humanity. We must try to help others, specially the needy and deserving persons. We should take care of the sick and poor. The most precious and valuable example of love is related to Allah Almighty. He loved his Prophet (PBUH) and told the whole mankind to love His Prophet (PBUH). The Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) was the greatest humanitarian that ever walked on earth. Love for humanity is spiritual love because when we love others, we love Allah. Those who give love to mankind are dear to Allah. Love for humanity is above everything. This will bring truthfulness, loyalty, friendship, patriotism and stability in human life. As Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) said, “If a Muslim loves his Muslim brother, he should inform him.” He (SAWW) said on another occasion; “Give gifts to each other, as this will make you love one another.” (Muslim) Humanity finds itself at a crucial junction: we need love for one another like air. Love for humanity gives them peace. Peace gives them courage. Courage gives them hope. Hope gives them imagination. Imagination gives them dreams. And dreams give them the ability to create positive change. Without humanity love, there is nothing. The human family includes everyone. To unite humanity one must love to human being. Like any other problem, great or small, there is only one way to solve economic problems, and that is through genuine love for humanity. This love will give people guidance; it will show them what to do and what not to do. It’s not good enough to love God and your family. You have to also love humanity as a whole. Appreciate the beauty of the human ability to communicate, to accomplish, and to create. This is intrinsic to every human being In order to realize your own potential, you have to love humanity. Their success is your success, too. Loving others connects you to the world. As long as you reject the spirit of love, you are also on the dark side of humanity. The world needs love. People need love. We need the love of community. We need love so we may grow up to be the leaders of tomorrow. We want to live with a positive life philosophy with true love. We want to influence the behaviours of humanity with love by making this piece of land a paradise. We want peace. We want a new world! We want Paradise! So, Love and you will be loved.
