I just read a post about love somewhere, I replied and I thought ok this might help someone so i copying and pasting my comment back here.
Love is to die in the other person.
Love is to lose conciousness of the self
Love is to commit suicide soul suicide everyday for your Beloved.
(back to earth maj)
Love is something we learn in time. Don’t worry about working out what Love is. love itself will teach you what it is and Love itself will teach you its etiquettes.
If you were my beloved my goal would be to not even let a slight scratch appear on your gentle fragile crystal like soul nor to let a frown appear on your forehead.
For men its different. If men are ‘admired’ like a warrior and ‘pampered’ like a baby they feel loved and it inspires them to Love.
I guess the biggest rule in love in the end is to not break a heart who loves you : halal love not BF or GF in that case you have to kill them you. To not do anything that breaks the love, to not let your beloved ever regret loving (marrying) you.
And do Lots of it @ Love.. Dil khul kar muhabbat karo. Allah ke kazane me koi kami nahee.. The more you love the more Allah will let you Love and the more you love the more you win the hearts of people. Dont be a miser-able lover. No Bukhl in Love.
