Love is something that cannot be described in mere words. Words have the power to communicate, but the wrong selection of words can lead to the destruction of families, one’s soul and generations. Therefore, to capture a heart, the words can only play a significant role if one can feel real and pure love.

Quranic Verses On Love: Different Interpretations But Single Destination!
Beginning with the verse of Surah Baqarah 2:195
وَأَحْسِنُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُحْسِنِينَ – Be good. Verily, Allah loves those who are good.
To attain the love of Allah, one has to be good! Now, what is being good? Don’t worry that too has been explained in a few words yet thoughtful meaning. The Messenger of Allah said (reported by Abu Hurairah):
ا تَدْخُلُونَ الْجَنَّةَ حَتَّى تُؤْمِنُوا وَلَا تُؤْمِنُوا حَتَّى تَحَابُّوا أَوَلَا أَدُلُّكُمْ عَلَى شَيْءٍ إِذَا فَعَلْتُمُوهُ تَحَابَبْتُمْ أَفْشُوا السَّلَامَ بَيْنَكُمْ – You will not enter Paradise until you believe and you will not believe until you love each other. Shall I show you something that, if you did, you would love each other? Spread peace between yourselves.
We see how much hatred is prevailing in the world, people would prefer love over hatred. Gun violence, terroristic activities, bullying, killings in the name of honour, devil propagandas and other evil activities that we see increasing on daily basis; as a result, is harming Ummah collectively. In the event of so much hate, negative vibes and everything bad; here is the saying by The Messenger of Allah:
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَقُولُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَيْنَ الْمُتَحَابُّونَ بِجَلَالِي الْيَوْمَ أُظِلُّهُمْ فِي ظِلِّي يَوْمَ لَا ظِلَّ إِلَّا ظِلِّي – Verily, Allah will say on the Day of Resurrection: Where are those who love each other for the sake of My glory? Today, I will shelter them in My shade, a Day when there is no shade but Mine.
The Quranic verses on love hold a different opinion about Love as compare to the materialistic affection we witness today in our lives.
Three Verses Of Quran About Love And Compassion!
Marriage is the only relation that is accepted by the Almighty and rewarded likewise. The relationship is encouraged and all other relations outside marriage or before marriage are discouraged for, they bring sadness, destruction and hopelessness in the long term. We are continuously reminded that the true bliss and blessing lies in the commandments of Allah and by not following them, we face depression, anxiety, expectations from the world that ultimately contribute towards an unhealthy life.
So, talking about how spouses are a source of strength, determination, love and power for each other and what does the Quran says about the relationship?
Created from Its Mate!
When Hazrat Eve was sent down on Earth for Hazrat Adam, she was created from the ribs of Hazrat Adam, indicating that she is part of you! She later revealed to the Prophet that she has been sent as a source of easing his loneliness and bring tranquility to him. This shows that women are no lesser but a comforter, and a comforter does not have to look for anybody whereas, everybody has to look for their comforter since life is hard!
O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah, through whom you ask one another, and the wombs. Indeed, Allah is ever, over you, an Observer. [Quran 4:1]
The Prophet Muhammad (Saww) said:
Treat women nicely, for a woman is created from a rib, and the most curved portion of the rib is its upper portion, so, if you should try to straighten it, it will break, but if you leave it as it is, it will remain crooked. So, treat women nicely.” [Saheeh Al-Bukhari]
Garment For Each Other!
In the words of Allah, we know that:
‘They are clothing for you and you are clothing for them’ [Quran 2:187]
The verse has three meanings, one being that clothes cover any defects we have, clothes protect us from the external bacteria which may harm us and clothes beautify us! All these meanings when used to describe the marriage, they mean that husband and wife hide each other’s defects in front of the others, they protect each other from the sins and harms of the world and they protect one another from the negative effects that could result in the form of divorce or unhealthy outcome.
This is an important message, must be understood and conveyed. Where we see a rise in divorce rates and less interest among the youth to get into this beautiful relation, is because they are not being taught the true virtue and blessings of the relationship and at the same time not trained enough to implement the teachings in the practical life.
Affection & Mercy!
Last but not least, the husband and wife are created as a source of affection & mercy for one another. To let them live a life of tranquility, it is important to observe affection and mercy in their day to day affairs. Only by this, they can assure a better and happy life in this world and hereafter.
‘And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed, in that are signs for a people who give thought.’ [Quran 30:21]
Quran is ultimate guidance for Muslims. Whatever you need, is in it! All you need to do is read and study it thoroughly as you do with your coursework. And in case you are looking for inspiration for a better relationship (be it with the Almighty, spouse or any legal relation), Quranic verses on love are your way to the light!
