Carrying on from The Wedding Diaries Part 1, I will continue to share what I learnt. This lectures theme was love.
Surely (as for) those who believe and do good deeds for them will Allah bring about love. (Qur’an 19:96)
Allah uses the word Wudd which comes from one of his names – Ya Waddud.
There are many types of love:
Jawad = generous
Karim = so you never need to ask again
Raouf = gentle type of love
Halim = forebearing.
Waddud is a deep penetrating love and no comparison. Scholars say it is the apex of love Allah can bestow upon us. Ishq is love so much it hurts but Wuddud is higher than that. We sometimes cannot receive such love because we place a barrier upon us.
