ALLAH'S LOVE FOR....

And spend of your substance in the cause
of Allah, and make not your own hands contribute
to (your) destruction; but do good; for
Allah
loveth
those who do good.  (Surah 2:195)

For
Allah loves those who turn to Him constantly
and He loves those who keep themselves pure and
clean. (Surah 2:222)

Yes, whoever fulfils his pledge and fears Allah
much; verily, then
Allah loves those who are Al-
Muttaqun (the pious).  (Surah 3:76)   

Those who spend (in Allah's Cause) in prosperity
and in adversity , who repress anger , and who
pardon men; verily,
Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the
good-doers).  (Surah 3:134)

And many a Prophet (i.e. many from amongst the
Prophets) fought (in Allah's Cause) and along with
him (fought) large bands of religious learned men...
And
Allah loves As-Sabirun (the patient).  (Surah
3:146)

So Allah gave them the reward of this world, and
the excellent reward of the Hereafter. And
Allah
loves
Al-Muhsinun (the good-doers)  (Surah 3:
148)

Put your trust in Allah, certainly,
Allah loves
those who put their trust (in Him).  (Surah 3:159)

Verily,
Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (good-doers)  
(Surah 5:13)

And if you judge, judge with justice
between them. Verily,
Allah loves those who act
justly.  (Surah 5:42)

O you who believe! Whoever from among you
turns back from his religion (Islam),
Allah will
bring a people whom He will
love and they will
love Him; humble towards the believers, stern
towards the disbelievers, fighting in the Way of
Allah.  (Surah 5:54)

Those who believe and do righteous good deeds,
there is no sin on them for what they ate (in the
past), if they fear Allah (by keeping away from
His forbidden things), and believe and do righteous
good deeds, and again fear Allah and believe, and
once again fear Allah and do good deeds with
Ihsan (perfection). And
Allah loves the good-
doers. (Surah 5:93)

Except those of the Mushrikun with whom you
have a treaty, and who have not subsequently
failed you in aught, nor have supported anyone
against you. So fulfil their treaty to them for the
end of their term. Surely
Allah loves Al-Mattaqun
(the pious)  (Surah 9:4)

How can there be a covenant with Allah and with
His Messenger for the Mushrikun (polytheists,
idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of
Allah) except those with whom you made a
covenant near Al-Masjid-al-Haram (at Makkah)?
So long as they are true to you, stand you true to
them. Verily,
Allah loves Al-Muttaqun (the
pious)  (Surah 9:7)

Verily, those who believe [in the Oneness of Allah
and in His Messenger (Muhammad عليه صلى الله
وسلم)] and work deeds of righteousness, the Most
Gracious (
Allah) will bestow love for them (in the
hearts of the believers).  (Surah 19:96)

But if one of them outrages against the other, then
fight you (all) against the one that which outrages
till it complies with the Command of Allah. Then
if it complies, then make reconciliation between
them justly, and be equitable. Verily!
Allah loves
those who are the equitable.  (Surah 49:9)

Allah does not forbid you to deal justly
and kindly with those who fought not against you
on account of religion nor drove you out of your
homes. Verily,
Allah loves those who deal with
equity.  (Surah 60:8)

Verily,
Allah loves those who fight in His
Cause in rows (ranks) as if they were a solid
structure.  (Surah 61:4)
                             GOD'S LOVE FOR....

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal
life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.  (John 3:16-17)

My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.  (John 14:23)

The
Father himself loves you because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God.  (John 16:27)

Then the
world will know that you [God] sent me and have loved them.  (John 17:23)

And hope does not put us to shame, because
God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has
been given to us. (Romans 5:5)

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But
God
demonstrates his
own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  9 We have now been justified by his
blood.  (Romans 5:7-9)

Who shall s
eparate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or
sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”[j]  37 No,
in all these things we are
more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons,[k] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else
in all creation, will be
able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-39)

I urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the
love of the Spirit  (Romans 15:30)

For
Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.  (II Corinthians 5:14)

Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the
GOD OF LOVE and peace will be with you.  (II Corinthians 13:11)

May the
grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.  (II
Corinthians 13:14)

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but
Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the
Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.  (Galatians 2:20)

But the fruit of the
Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.  
(Galatians 5:22)

But because of his great
love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in
transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.  (Ephesians 2:4)

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in
love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to
grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the
love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you
may be
filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19)

Follow
God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave
himself up for us as a fragrant offering and
sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:1-2)

Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.  (Ephesians 5:25)

Peace to the brothers and sisters, and
love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Grace to all who love
our Lord Jesus Christ with an
undying love.  (Ephesians 6:23)

May our Lord
Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good
hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.  (II Thessalonians 2:16)

But when the kindness and
love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but
because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the
Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us
generously through
Jesus Christ our Savior.  (Titus 3:4-6)

See what
great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!  (I John 3:
1)

This is how we know what
love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.  (I John 3:16)

Dear friends, let us love one another, for
love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  (I
John 4:7)

This is how
God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  (I
John 4:9)

This is love: not that we loved
God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  (I John 4:10)

No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,
God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (I John 4:12)

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
GOD IS LOVE Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.  (I
John 4:16)

We love because he
(God) first loved us.  (I John 4:19)

Keep yourselves in
God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.  (Jude 1:21)

Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.

To him (
Jesus) who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood.  (Revelation 1:5)

Acknowledge that I (
Jesus) have loved you.
ALLAH TELLING
  US TO
LOVE OTHERS

And hold fast, all together, by
the rope which Allah (stretches
out for you), and be not divided
among yourselves; and remember
with gratitude Allah.s favour on
you; for ye were enemies and He
joined your hearts in love, so
that by His Grace, ye became
brethren; and ye were on the
brink of the pit of Fire, and He
saved you from it. Thus doth
Allah make His Signs clear to
you: That ye may be guided.  
(Surah 3:103)

But because of their breach of
their covenant, We cursed them,
and made their hearts grow hard;
they change the words from their
(right) places and forget a good
part of the message that was sent
them, nor wilt thou cease to find
them- barring a few - ever bent
on (new) deceits: but forgive
them, and overlook (their
misdeeds): for
Allah loveth those
who are kind
.
(Surah 5:13)'

It is He Who created you from a
single person, and made his mate
of like nature, in order that he
might
dwell with her (in love).
When they are united, she bears
a light burden and carries it about
(unnoticed). When she grows
heavy, they both pray to Allah
their Lord, (saying): "If Thou
givest us a goodly child, we vow
we shall (ever) be grateful."  
(Surah 7:189)

"O our Lord! I have made some
of my offspring to dwell in a
valley without cultivation, by
Thy Sacred House; in order, O
our Lord, that they may
establish regular Prayer: so fill
the hearts of some among men
with
love towards them, and feed
them
with fruits: so that they
may give thanks.  (Surah 14:37)

And among His Signs is this, that
He created for you
mates from
among yourselves, that ye may
dwell in tranquillity with them,
and He has put l
ove and mercy
between your (hearts):
verily in
that are Signs for those who
reflect.  (Surah 30:21)

And he said, "Truly do I
love the
love of good,
with a view to the
glory of my Lord,"- until (the
sun) was hidden in the veil (of
night):  
(Surah 38:32)

That is (the Bounty) whereof
Allah gives Glad Tidings to His
Servants who believe and do
righteous deeds. Say: "No reward
do I ask of you for this except
the
love of those near of kin."
And if any one earns any good,
We shall give him an increase of
good in respect thereof: for Allah
is Oft-Forgiving, Most Ready to
appreciate (service).  (Surah
42:23)

And they
feed, for the love of
Allah
, the indigent, the orphan,
and the captive.  (Surah 76:8)
                               GOD TELLING US TO LOVE OTHERS

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute
you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the
unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your
own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?  (Matthew 5:43-47)

Honor your father and mother,’[c] and ‘
love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Matthew 19:19)

And the second is like it: ‘
Love your neighbor as yourself.  (Matthew 22:39)

Love your neighbor as yourself.’[g] There is no commandment greater than these.”.... "to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all
burnt offerings and sacrifices.”  (Mark 12:31. 33)

“But to you who are listening I say:
Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat
you. 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. 30 Give to
everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31
Do to others as you would have them do to you.  (Luke 6:
27-31)

“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to
you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even
sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But
love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything
back.  (Luke 6:32-35)

“A new command I give you:
Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my
disciples, if you
love one another.”  (John 13:34-35)

My command is this:
Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends....This is my
command:
Love each other.    (John 15:12-13, 17)

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be
lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13
Share with the Lord’s
people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with
one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[c] Do not be conceited.   17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil.
Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.  (Romans 12:9-17)

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing
debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.  (Romans 13:8)

Whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “
Love your neighbor as yourself.”[b] 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor.
Therefore
love is the fulfillment of the law.   (Romans 13:9b-10)

But whoever
loves God is known by God.  (I Corinthians 8:3)

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.  My
love to all of you in Christ Jesus.  (I Corinthians 16:23-24)

For I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of
heart and with many tears, not to grieve you but to let you know the depth of my love for you.  (II
Corinthians 2:4)

....in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in
sincere love.  (II Corinthians 6:6)

But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete
earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you[a]—see that you
also excel in this grace of giving.  8 I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your
love by comparing it with the earnestness of
others.  (II Corinthians 8:7-8)

So I will very gladly spend for you
everything I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more.  (II Corinthians 12:15)

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through
love.  (Galatians 5:6)

Serve one another humbly in
love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself."  (Galatians 5:13-14)

In
love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will.  (Ephesians 1:5)

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your
love for all God’s people, 16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you,
remembering you in my prayers.  (Ephesians 1:15)

So that Christ may dwell in your
hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all
the Lord’s holy people.  (Ephesians 3:17-18)

Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with
one another in love.  (Ephesians 4:2)

Instead, speaking the
truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the
whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and
builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.  (Ephesians 4:15-16)

Walk in the way of
love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.  (Ephesians 5:2)

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing[b] her by the washing with water
through the word....In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.  (Ephesians 5:25-28)

However, each one of you also must
love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.  (Ephesians 5:33)

Peace to the brothers and sisters, and
love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.  (Ephesians 6:23)

And this is my prayer: that your
love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight.  (Philippians 1:9)

Then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same
love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or
vain conceit. Rather, in humility value
others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.  
(Philippians 2:2-4)

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is
pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if
anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  (Philippians 4:8)

We have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the
love you have for all God’s people.  (Colossians 1:4)

My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and
united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding.  (Colossians 2:2)

Husbands,
love your wives and do not be harsh with them.  (Colossians 3:19)

We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. 3 We remember before our God and Father your work produced by
faith, your labor
prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.  (I Thessalonians 1:2-3)

May the Lord make your
love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.  (I Thessalonians 3:12)

Now about your
love for one another we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. 10 And in fact,
you do love all of God’s family.  (I Thessalonians 4:9-10)

Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13 Hold
them in the
highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.  (I Thessalonians 5:12-13)

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith,
love, endurance and gentleness. (I Timothy 6:11)

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power,
love and self-discipline.  (II Timothy 1:6)

Rather, he must be hospitable, one who l
oves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.  (Titus 1:8)

Then they can urge the younger women to
love their husbands and children.  (Titus 2:4)

I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, 5 because I hear about your
love for all his holy people and your faith in the Lord Jesus. 6 I
pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of
every good thing we share for the sake of Christ. 7
Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people.  (Philemon 1:4-7)

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the
love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.  (Hebrews
6:10)

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward
love and good deeds.  (Hebrews 10:24)

Keep on
loving one another as brothers and sisters. 2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown
hospitality to angels without knowing it. 3 Continue to r
emember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are
mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.  (Hebrews 13:1-3)

If you really keep the
royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,”[a] you are doing right.  (James 2:8)

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have
sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.  (I
Peter 1:22)

Show proper respect to everyone,
love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.  (I Peter 2:17)

Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic,
love one another, be compassionate and humble. 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult.
On the contrary,
repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.  (I Peter 3:8-9)

Anyone who
loves their brother and sister[c] lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.  (I John 2:10)

If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the
love of God be that person? 18 Dear
children, let us not
love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.  (I John 3:17-18)

Dear friends, let us
love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  (I John 4:7)

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to
love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and
his
love is made complete in us.  (I John 4:11-12)

And so we know and rely on the
love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 18 There is no fear in love. But
perfect l
ove drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.  (I John 4:16,18)

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also
love their brother and sister.   (I John 4:21)

And this is
love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.  (II John 1:6)
