The Verse About Mahabbah

December 6, 2018 No Comments »

Imam al-Hasan al-Basri, Allah sanctify his secret, said:

“The people claimed that they loved Allah, so Allah revealed the Verse about Love [Mahabbah] in the Quran,

Allah tells the Messenger of Allah ﷺ,

قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّـهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّـهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

“Say, ‘If you love Allah, then follow me (meaning, follow the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. Most certainly, Allah is All-Forgiving, All-Merciful.'”

(Explanation of the Quran, Chapter 3, Verse 31 – Tafsir Quran al-Azim)
