wa-llazina amanuu ashaddu hubbal lillah
those of faith are overflowing in their love for Allah.
- Suratu-l-Baqarah 2:165

wa Huwa-l-ghafuru-l-wadudu - zhul-arshi-l-majid
and He is the Ever-Forgiving, the All-Loving, Lord of the Glorious Throne.
- Suratu-l-Buruj 86:14-15

And what is that Throne but the Heart of the faithful in accord with the well known Hadith Qudsi “Nothing contains My Glory, My Lights, My Manifestations except the Heart of the faithful, for nothing can contain Me but the Heart of the faithful ones.”

qalba-l-mumin baytu-r-Rabb
Heart of the faithful is Abode of the Lord.
- Saying of the Messenger, may our love be perfected for him

Love is something granted by Allah to the heart of His Slave which distracts him from everything else other than Him, to the point that you see your lower self inclining to Him, the intellect protecting itself by spiritual knowledge of Him, the spirit rapt in His Presence, the inner secret soul overwhelmed in contemplation of Him. The slave asks for more, and more is given, and he enters into the sweetest of delights of spiritual communion with Him. He is clad in raiment that befits the approach to Him upon the carpet of proximity and he comes into contact with virgin reality and revealed science. For that reason it is said that the awliyah are the brides of Allah, Glorious is He. - Shaykh Sidi Abu-l-Hasasn ash-Shadhdhuli, may Allah sanctify his secret

Know my beloved, that there are four names for the stations of love (maqamatu-l-mahabbah); passion (hawa) which is the falling of love into the heart in its very initial state within the lover. If passion has no association with another beloved and the lover is deprived of his will and comes under the will of the beloved, then passion is called love (al-hubb). When love (al-hubb) becomes constant it is called affection (al-wudd) and when it embraces the heart and the thoughts and nothing remains it is called passionate longing (al-ishq). The ishq then surrounds the lovers heart until it blinds the lover from seeing anything but the beloved. - Shaykh Muhammad al-Jamal, may Allah be pleased with him

It is a matter of rising in love rather than falling in love even though it seems that falling in love is what the world seems to treasure.. this is an extremely important point to consider in both the contemplation and experience of love. "Does this love I feel bring me closer to Allah and His Messenger or close to the dunya (temporal and passing world of appearance)?"  - Shaykh A. Nooruddeen Durkee, may Allah accept his tireless service
