Our need to love him ..

“The Prophet (peace be upon him) is not in need of our love for him when Allah loved him, and chose him and raised him! But we are in need of loving him. Why? Because, if he becomes more beloved to us than our own selves, then, if your lower self commanded you to evil, and you loved him more than your own self, then your lower self would have no influence over you. You would leave what you desire for what he called you to, because he is more beloved to you than your self.”

-al-Habib Ali al-Jifri
