Worldly Affairs Do Not Separate Those Who Love Each Other For Allah

The Noble Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

Those who love each other for the sake of Allah, there’s nothing from the affairs of the worldly life that can cut off their love for the sake of Allah. Indeed they are people who only love (each other) for the sake of Allah, nothing separates them except for death. Even if some of them have made a mistake against the others or have fallen short regarding the rights of others, indeed this does not concern them.

قال الشيخ ابن عثيمين رحمه الله تعالى

المتحابين في الله لا يقطع محبتهم في الله شيء من أمور الدنيا ، وإنما هم متحابون في الله لا يفرقهم إلا الموت، حتى لو أن بعضهم أخطأ على بعض، أو قصَّر في حق بعض ، فإن هذا لا يهمهم
