The Principle of Love and Desire is one of Ibn Taymiyyah’s many important works on ‘aqīdah. In it, he explains how love is the basis of every movement that occurs in the universe and every action of Bani Ādam.

He explains that love necessitates hate for the things that oppose what one loves and that this love and hate is the foundation of Islām, tawḥīd, and īmān. He also discusses the many sects that strayed from Allāh’s straight path due to their misunderstanding of this fundamental principle.

About the Author:

Shaykh Ibn Taymiyah (1263 CE/661 AH – 1328 CE/728 AH) came from a scholarly family and was himself a scholar from an early age, completing his studies whilst still in his teens. Although written over five centuries ago, his words are as relevant today as they were then, tackling the weighty issues that have always haunted mankind. Drawing upon his vast knowledge of the Qur’an and Sunnah, he shows the Islamic answers to those questions.
