Love is an important aspect of Islam In the Sufi Path of Love written by Rumi Love is the central theme Rumi speaks alot about love and its branches and ramifications According to Rumi Love ddominateds most of the Sufi way of life In a translation of Sufi Path of Love written by William C Chittuck Sufi says No matter what I say to explain and elucidate Love shame overcomes me when I Love cannot be contained within our speaking or listening Love is an ocean whose depths cannot be plumbed Love cannot be found in erudition and science books and pages Whatever is duscussed by people- That is not the way of loversWhatever you have said or heard is the shell The kernel of Love is a mystery that Chittucks translation of this is that Love cannot be explained in words but that it must be felt to be understood There is not possible way that you can tell someone what love is or write it down to someone so the person may understand To Rumi If love isnt felt then the person will not truly know what love is To understand the Islamic conception of Love you must know the Korans defenition of the term The Prophet Muhammad once said God is beautiful and He loves beauty It can be also defined like this If something is beautiful it is worthy of love In the Vision Of Islam it says that that whenever God is said to love something the object of his love are human beings but his love arent for all human beings His love is for those who do things and have traits that are beautiful Some verses in the Koran Do what is beautiful Surely God loves those who do what is beautiful Whoso fulfills his covenant and is wary of God- surely God loves the god-waryTruly God loves those who repent and He loves those who cleanse themselves
