The concept of love

The various level of love:

Dr Abdullah Nasih Al-Ulwan has divided love into three distinct levels according to the verse 24 of Al-Taubah.

The highest level is the love for Allah, the Prophet and jihad in the cause of Islam

The intermediate level is the love for parents, sons, daughters, siblings, spouses, and families.

The lowest level is the kind of love for this world which turns us away from the love for Allah, His Prophet and jihad in His path.
