Madly in Love with Another's Looks

Madly in Love with Another's Looks

Ibn al-Qayyim said:

One of the scholars was asked about [people who are] madly in love with [other people’s attractive] images and looks,1 so he said:

“[They have] hearts that have left off remembering Allāh, so Allāh put them to trial by subjecting them to other than Him [in worship1].”

1Their love and subjection to them is as much as or greater than to Allāh. See fatwa 9634, (Trans.)

Miftah Dār al-Sa’ādah 311, as quoted by Shaikh Fawāz al-Madkhalī. 13 Apr 17 . 7:24pm.
