Salam,

Dear brothers & sisters !

Please consider, i know that love has such a great power and often is hard to explain ! There are many verses in the Qur'an saying that Allah Loves such people and actions and Does Not Love such people with that specific attitude and action.

As Prophet Solomon loved his cavalry since they helped him glorify his Lord’s name.

38:32 He would say, “Surely, I love my fondness of all that is good because it reminds me of my Lord”, as the horses raced away until hidden by the veil of distance.
...
And in 19:96 it's clear how important Love is.

19:96 Surely, those who attain belief and work for the good of others, the Beneficent will endow them with love.
...
Loving Allah might bring people to His Straight Path and Guidance.

3:31 Say, (O Messenger!) “If you love God, follow me. Then God will love you and protect you from trailing behind in humanity. God is Forgiving, Merciful."

[Hubb = Love = Full support = Having a common objective. Loving God = Following His commands = Serving His creation = Benefiting others. God’s love = His blessings in both lives. Zanb = Tail = Trailing behind. Ghafarah = Helmet and armor = Protection against deterioration = Forgiveness]
...
And people tend to help, support and guide their loved ones.

28:56 Surely, you cannot guide everyone you love, but it is God Who guides him who wishes to be guided. And He is best Aware of those who will be rightly guided.
[2:272, 4:88, 10:99-100]
...
Love is crucial. Believers love Allah !

2:165 Yet, among mankind there are those who choose others as equals to God. They love them as they should love God. But the believers are staunch in their love for God. Oh, if only the transgressors could see themselves when they see the doom! They will realize then that all power belongs to God alone, and that God is Stern in punishment.
...
With all this, i have something in mind:

Does falling in love (Ishq) with a human develope our love for the Creation & the Creator ?!
