"It is upon the Believer to have enmity for Allaah's sake and
allegience for Allaah's sake. If the person is a Believer, then it is
upon him to show allegience to him; even if he is wronged by him. This
is because wrong-doing does not cut-off the allegience [which is
required] by faith (al-mawaalaatul-eemaaniyyah).
If a Muslim Has in himself both good and evil; obedience and
disobedience; righteousness and wickedness; Sunnah and bid'ah; then he
is deserving of allegiance and reward in proportion to what he has of
good, and he is deserving of enmity and punishment in proportion to what
he has of evil.
Those whom we should sincerely
love and have allegience for; showing no enmity towards them
whatsoever:The people of this
catagory are the true Believers; the Prophets, the truthful ones, the
martyrs, and the righteous.
Those whom we should purely hate and have enmity for, without showing
love and allegience to them: In this catagory fall the unbelievers, the
mushriks, the hypocrites, the apostates and the atheists...
"You will not find any people who believe in Allaah and the Last
day loving those who resist Allaah and His Messenger; even though they
were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers, or their
relatives." [Soorah al-Mujaadalah 58:22].
"O you who believe! Do not take as intimate friends and protectors
your fathers and your brothers, if they love unbelief over faith. And if
any do so, then they are the wrong doers." [Soorah at-Tawbah 9:23].
Those who are to be loved and shown allegiance to from one angle, but
are to be hated and shown enmity to from another angle: In this category
fall the sinful and disobedient ones from amongst the Muslims. So we
should love due to what they possess of faith (eemaan), and hate them
for what they have of sins and disobedience to Allaah; providing such
sins are not the greater type of unbelief (kufr) or shirk. Loving them
requires sincerely advising them; as well as commanding them with good
and forbidding them from evil.
