By Allah I love you
Ibnil Fudhail said:
“I went to visit Abu Ishaaq As Sabee’ee after he lost his sight.
So I said: “Do you know who I am?
He said: “Fudhail?
So I said: “Yes!”
So he said to me: “Verily, By Allah I love you! and were it not for me being shy of you I would kiss you” then he pulled me to his chest (and hugged me)
then said: “Al Ahwas narrated to me upon the authority of Abdullah who said (concerning the statement of Allah) “If you were to give in Charity all that is on earth, you would not be able to unite their hearts but Allah has united them” (Suratul Anfaal Vs 63)
“This verse was revealed concerning those who love each other (For the sake of Allah)”
