By Imam Ibn ul Qayyim al Jawziyyah
Excerpted from An-Nooniyyah
Quoted in “Al-Walaa wal-Baraa” of Muhammad Saeed al-Qahtani

The love of the Beloved
must be unconditionally returned.

If you claim love
yet oppose the Beloved,
then your love is but a pretence.
You love the enemies of your Beloved
and still seek love in return.
You fight the beloved of your Beloved.

Is this Love or the following of shaytaan?

True devotion is nothing
but total submission
of body and soul
to One Love.
We have seen humans claim to submit,
yet their loyalties are many.
They put their trust here, and their hope there,
and their love is without consequence.
