What Is Love?
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
“It is true you will not be able to guide every one whom you love; but Allah guides those whom He will. And He knows best those who receive guidance.” Qur’an 28:56
“And among His Signs is that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your [hearts]: Verily in that are Signs for those who reflect.” Qur’an 30:21
“Nay. -- Those that keep their plighted faith and act aright, -- verily Allah loves those who act aright.” Qur’an 3:76
