Q 26: What is the textual proof from the Glorious Qur'an and the Prophetic Sunnah that love for
Allah and His Prophet is a precondition for faith in the Almighty?
A--- Allah the Almighty says: (O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him}. (Al-Ma'idah, 54)
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) says: "Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of Faith: (a) The one to whom Allah and His Messenger becomes dearer than anything else. (b) Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah's Sake. (c) Who hates to revert to disbelief (Atheism) after Allah has brought (saved) him out from it, as he hates to be thrown in fire ". (Bukhari and Muslim)
