Love is of Two Types
Ibn Al-Qayyim رحمه الله said:
[The first being] the love that is the paradise of [this] earth, the rejoicement of the spirit, the gratification of the heart, the bliss of the soul and its nourishment and cure, in fact it is its life and delight. It is love of Allah alone with all of one’s heart, and by drawing out and directing the intensities of one’s attachments, wants and love entirely towards Him.
[The second type of] love is the torment of the soul, the sadness of the spirit, the prison of the heart and the tightness of the chest. It is the cause of pain, bitterness and weariness. It is the love for other than Him – glorified be He.
