The Info List - Al Wala' Wal Bara'

--- Advertisement ---

Al-wala' wa-l-bara' (Arabic: الولاء والبراء‎) is an Arabic
term in Islam, meaning "loyalty and disavowal". It signifies loving and hating for the sake of Allah. [1] Al-wala' wa-l-bara' is referred to as holding fast to all that is pleasing to Allah, and withdrawing from and opposing all that is displeasing to Allah, for the sake of Allah. This is for their calling towards something other than submission to Allah, whether on purpose or by nature of disbelief. Loving for the sake of Allah means to love Allah and to show loyalty to Him by following His Shariah. It means to love all that is good and permissible in the Quran and Sunnah. This type of love requires one to defend Allah's deen and to preserve it. It is to love those who are obedient to Allah and to defend and assist them. Hating for the sake of Allah signifies showing anger towards those who oppose Allah, His Messenger, His deen, and the believers. [2] However one cannot kill nor harm kuffar. One should have good manners with kuffar. Allah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion and did not drive you out of your homes. Verily, Allah loves those who deal with equity. (Quran (translation of meanings )60:8) This hatred is for kuffar because of shirk. O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah and be just witnesses and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do. (Qur'an (translation of the meanings) 5:8) Natural love is allowed for non muslims such as non muslim parents, wife, etc. Shari' love is haram for non Muslims including kuffar parents. One should call kuffar to Islam. [3] See also[edit]
