Delivered by: By H.R.H. Prince Professor Ghazi bin Muhammad of Jordan [University of Jordan]

A monumental and widely-praised book which deals with the subject of love, from a scholastic and academic point of view but which is written in a simple and accessible style for all.

At least one verse from every chapter—and over one fifth of the whole Qur’an is cited, the book  covers  love of God, of neighbor, family, friendship; the stages of falling in love; sexual love; extra-marital love; beauty; taste and much more, all based entirely on the Qur’an.

Reviews of the book:

“[It] clarifies the meaning of love and its forms, components and secrets, deriving all this from the Holy Qur’an. It shows which kinds of love are praiseworthy and which are blameworthy, and the different degrees of love, lovers and beloveds—and it does all this with a creative and engaging style of exposition. We ask God Almighty to accept this effort from the author, and make it a cause of benefit for the world.” —Mufti Muhammad Taqi Uthmani, Vice President of Darul Uloom Karachi, Pakistan

‘An outstanding work, worthy of praise and esteem for its method, its content and its language.’ H.E. Imam Prof. Dr. Ahmad Muhammad al-Tayyib, Grand Imam of al-Azhar and Supervisor of the thesis at al-Azhar University

‘What the world should understand when it hears the Qur’an.’ - Sheikh Ali Gomaa, Grand Mufti of Egypt

“I consider this work a precious treasure because of its detailed study of one of the most important human values and emotions, one which is shared by individuals and peoples alike…. [This] valuable study has gathered together all elements of ethics, philosophy and spirituality, most of it previously unavailable in any studies…. There is enough in it to satisfy the student; convince the doubter; increase the faith of the believer, and evoke in everyone a sense of the importance of the direct experience of love and the higher human emotions.” —H.E. Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Husayn Isma’il al-Sadr

‘[This book is] a journey into the depths of the soul. Its arena is the garden of love; its roots have been nourished by the water of wisdom; its branches extend into the sky of knowledge; its flowers are perfumed with the scent of the Sacred Law; its fruit is happiness.’ - H.E. Sheikh Prof. Dr. Abdullah bin Mahfuz bin Bayyah, President of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, and President and Founder of the Global Centre for Renewal and Guidance

“This wonderful book Love in the Holy Qur’an contains a beautiful arrangement of complimentary [Qur’anic] verses…. What is particularly pleasing is the concentration on the mutual love between God Almighty and His servants, and between humanity themselves, and indeed between all created beings.” —Ayatollah Muhammad Ali al-Taskhiri, Secretary General of the Forum for the Rapprochement of Islamic Schools in the World

“Everyone should read this book, in order to learn about love in the Qur’an, and to witness the love which pervades the work.” —H.E. Sheikh Mustafa Ceric, Chief Scholar and Grand Mufti, Bosnia-Herzegovina

‘A masterwork of scholarship and of inspiration.’ - H.E. Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, Distinguished Senior Scholar, the Library of Congress
