The three differences between the love of the creatures and the love of Allah in the love of the creatures. This is called “the love of creation” in the terminology of our elders.
The rest of the loves that are related to religion are included in the love of Allah … and there are three wonderful differences in the love of Allah Almighty:
The first difference:
The first difference is that the person who is afraid of the creatures, he ran away from the creatures. If we are afraid of the snake, we run away from it. If we have the fear of the same servant in our heart, we run away from it. That is to say, the matter of the creatures is that the more a person is afraid of the creatures, the more he Run away from it. But look at the case of Allah that the more a person fears Allah, the closer he gets to Allah.
The second difference:
Now understand the second difference. In the love of the creature, the lover wants the body of the beloved to be with us, his heart wants wherever he wants. He does not care about the heart of the beloved, he looks at the body, the body is wanted. In the love of the creatures there is the desire to have the body and the heart wherever it wants. But the matter of love of Allah, the Lord of Glory, is strange! God Almighty wants: My servant! Your heart should be with me, your body wherever you want. If you are in the mosque, even then I am pleased with you, if you are in the bazaar, even then I am pleased with you, just have your heart with me.
The third difference:
Then there is a big difference between the love of the Creator and the Creator. One who loves the creatures will one day be separated from the creatures and the one who loves Allah will one day be separated from the Creator. Will be merged Therefore, we should create the love of Allah, the Lord of Glory, in our hearts, and make it our true Beloved. Do you love those who die and those who die? Maulana Na Room says: Love is not lasting with the dead, it is enduring with the dead.
