o Edit
Love (Adore – worship) and affection (fondness), if taken together, help consolidate our relationship. It is need based. Whenever somebody in our relationship or outside it meets our daily requirement(s) we take it as such. There is no quid pro quo in such love and affection. It is a duty based or responsibility based. Such things are important factors in our day to day lives. You go all out in meeting the needs of others without something in return. But love when taken alone has got wider connotations. It is based on truth, sincerity, honesty and integrity without expecting anything in return. Love combined with affection is really, in my view, others may differ is intoxicating and give purpose in our life that you have to fulfill something for your dear one, you are duty bound but that duty is not compulsion but a social necessity. *

*Love is adoration or worship and affection is fondness for somebody or something. When you shower love and affection towards humans or animals, combined together these have mesmerizing affect. Our Lord loves us immensely and if we reciprocate it, it multiplies and impacts our life. Love in fact is a crazy in itself, it multiplies as we divide it. Love and affection, if distributed as freebee, brings forth understanding and camaraderie freely. A person to whom you love, you ask nothing in return. It is pious in nature.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.

  1. Love is a enchanting and its affect on us is still more enchanting. It is a trait bestowed on not only on humans but on all the living beings. When we shower our love to animals they reciprocate even with more ferocity. Not only this, even plants reciprocate our love.

  2. Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah , then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”Surat ‘Ali `Imran [3:31]

    Allah Almighty said: “My servant draws near to Me with nothing more loved by Me than the acts of worship that I have enjoined upon him. My servant continues to try to draw near to Me with more devotion, until I love him. When I love him, I will be his hearing with which he hears, his sight by which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, his feet on which he walks. When he asks Me for something, I will respond and when he takes refuge in Me, I will grant it to him. I do not hesitate in doing anything I intend to do as much as I hesitate in seizing the soul of My faithful servant; he hates death and I hate hurting him. But death is a must for him”.” (Al- Bukhari)

    Nice post dear Brother, I Love you Allah the forgiveness one all…<3

    1. Semra sister, I am obviously impressed by your quotation from Holy Quran

      [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah , then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”Surat ‘Ali `Imran [3:31]

      Love is such a trait which brings about sweet response from everybody with whom we interact. Even the brutes, if dealt with love, will reciprocate with love. Love mantra is thus a game changer.
      Then there is the question of forgiving and subsequently forgetting which if combined together could bring about good results.

      Our Allaha is so benevolent that even if we do not know the language of love and do not shower love to Him even then He loves us and provides us everything- bounties without which we cannot live even for a few minutes: air, water and sun – free. In this He does not discriminate. They why humans discriminate.

      I am really enamored by your response. Commendable indeed.

      Regards sister
