Beneficial Brotherhood and Love

Beneficial Brotherhood and Love

It is reported that ‘Abdullah b. Abbas - Allah be pleased with him - said, "Love for Allah and hate for Allah, make your enmity because of Allah and your allegiance because of Allah; for indeed, the love and support of Allah is not achieved save through this. And a man will never taste true faith (iman) - though he may pray and fast much - except when he is like that. Today, the people’s brotherhood is based upon worldly considerations (dunya), but this will not do anything for them on the Day of Resurrection."
Ref.: Ibn Al-Mubarak, Al-Zuhd wa Al-Raqa`iq article 353.

Life is bread, water, and shade; so do not be perturbed by a
lack of any other material thing.
"And in the heaven is your provision, and that which you are promised." [51:22]
