Love of God is irreplaceable

SHAFAQNA – Allah (SWT) says in the holy Quran: Those who believe, love God more than anything else. In a divine narration, the Almighty says: I will never gather my love and love of the world in one heart. This means that each heart has capacity for one love, love of the world or love for God. It is narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: There are 6 loves that can replace love of God and for them the human being commits sin and disobedience of the Almighty: Love of the world, love of position, love of food, love of women, love of sleep and love of comfort [1].

Each one of these loves can replace the love for God when they find independent or inherent values with human being, otherwise there is no problem with their existence as long as they are not replacing love of God as in another narration Imam Sadeq (AS) said: Whoever loves for God and does not love for God and gives for God, is one of those with complete belief [2].
