Is religion anything but love and affection?


SHAFAQNA – It is narrated that a man from Khorasan came to see Imam Baqer (AS) on foot. When he arrived, took his shoes off, blisters all over his feet and said: By God, nothing but the love of Ahlul Bait (AS) brought me here from faraway lands. Imam Baqer (AS) replied: By God, if a stone loves us, God will associate it with us and is the religion anything else except affection? God says: O’ the Prophet, say: If you love God, follow me so that God will love you and God said: They will love those who migrate towards them (Ahlul Bait), and is the religion anything else but love and affection [1]?
