    My addition to the question. There are so many folk love stories (Laila majnon, Romeo Juliet, etc) and we see a lot of these type of love affairs around us too. May be they are more common now because of the waswasas of media. Is there any Hadith or riwayat about these kind of love affairs?

      We should express our love and affection openly in the society. not keep it a secret from the family, friends and the neighbors. Visible and overt relationships naturally follow ethics of religion and tradition as they are held accountable in the eyes of the society. Secrecy in a relationship and meeting behind closed doors is discouraged in islam. Because secrecy is very likely to cause a slip resulting in lustful behavior and fornication/adultery..

    I’ve personally believed that sexual attraction towards the opposite gender is natural and caused due to the changes in hormones. As we are made this way so it is not wrong.

    Love in my opinion is just a thought or an alternative and illogical term given to attraction. Love in psychology results from a chemical in our brain called oxytocin and it is the warmth , sense of security and affiliation we get from our family so we say we love them.

    To love a random person, for example I see a girl and get attracted towards her but I’ve not met her and spent time with her so obviously I can’t develop that sense of affiliation, warmth, care so there are only sexual feelings attached in this case. This is where people go wrong and consider it as something called love which is illogical in my opinion. People can differ from my views.

    But this was a good question I’ve always wanted an islamic perspective on this topic from ghamidi sb.

    The feeling of love is not something very rare or unusual, rather it belongs to ‘ilm-o-aqal kai musalmaat’ which is something human beings can, for the most part, rightfully decide how to express it and what limits to observe. Islam doesn’t interfere in such matters except to the extent where some limits are bound to affect ‘Tazkiya’ of a person, the rest is left to a human’s intellect. In addition to general guidelines on Ethical Prohibitions given in Quran Surah Araf Verse 33, with respect to certain relationships like with parents and spouse, there are few pointers that have been told to be kept in mind A.K.A ‘the limits that need not be crossed’. Islam doesn’t impose unnecessary shackles on human beings whether it be to express your love for someone or other matters in life.

    Since this topic is scattered over different domains of human’s religious, societal and familial relationships, I’ve tried to include all the related educational material of Ghamidi Sahab in the following videos, which either directly or indirectly, touches this topic of ‘Love’.

    What is Love? It is an emotion. it’s a feeling. Its in basic human nature. Its a basic instinct. But above all its a word that reveals a connection. What matters is the connection the word “Love” implies. That connection may be Metaphysical(Allah) or physical( with another Human being) in nature. We will give anything to hold onto that connection. We will even sacrifice our own lives in that pursuit. Its a basic survival instinct.

    We do not come in the world alone or in isolation or solitary confinement. We were born in a Mother’s womb. She carried us for nine months constantly in pain and suffering. This created the initial bond with Mother. When we opened our eyes we see our father and siblings. Hence more bonds/relationships/connections are created. When we become adults we become conscious of Allah talla and hence a new bond is established and so on..

    Love is a natural human emotion. Human beings are emotional beings unlike Machines/Computers/Robots who can only evaluate logically. Human beings suffer from pain and misery in this world. To express human suffering Emotions are absolutely necessary. Love heals our pains and sufferings with time.. But we Human beings can also ethically and morally & intellectually control these emotions and create balance within our lives. We have been gifted by God with a moral sense. The differentiation between right and wrong. We Can judge ourselves and hold ourselves accountable by listening to this inner voice of Conscience(Zameer).
