Moderate love and hate


The Messenger of Allah said:

أَحْبِبْ حَبِيبَكَ هَوْناً مَا

Love your loved ones moderately,

عَسَى اَنْ يَكُونَ بَغِيضَكَ يوماً مَا

as one day he may become someone you hate!

وَ اَبْغِضْ بَغِيضَكَ هَوْناً مَا

And hate the one you hate moderately,

عَسَى أَنْ يَكُونَ حَبِيبَكَ يَوماً مَا

as one day he may become someone you love!

Found in at-Tirmithee on the authority of Aboo Hurayrah t.
It is saheeh as Shaykh ‘Alee al-Halabee shows in “Forty Hadeeth on the Islamic Personality”.

so think about that.......
