Surah Maryam (Mary) 19 : 96
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
In contrast with this loneliness and isolation, the believers are given a comforting, friendly surrounding: “God will certainly bestow love on those who believe and do righteous deeds.” (Verse 96) The mention of love in this context is bound to comfort and penetrate people’s hearts. It is a type of love that spreads in heaven and spills over to fill the earth and comfort people. The whole universe is given a full share of it.
Abū Hurayrah, a companion of the Prophet, reports that God’s Messenger said: “When God loves a human being, He calls in Gabriel and says to him: ‘Gabriel, I love this person, so you love him too.’
Gabriel then loves that person and calls out to all those living in heaven, saying: ‘God loves this person, so you all love him too.’ Thus all those who live in heaven start to love that person. He will also be loved on earth. But if God dislikes someone, He also calls in Gabriel and says: ‘Gabriel, I dislike this person, so you hate him too.’ Gabriel then hates that person and calls out to all those living in heaven, saying: ‘God dislikes this person, so you all hate him too.’ Thus all those who live in heaven start to hate that person. He will also be hated on earth.” [Related by al-Bukhārī, Muslim and Aĥmad].
