Thoughts #6 (Fahisha & Shirk)

One reason why liking what Allah hates can be considered dangerous is because the inability to fulfill one’s desire – not just because it is haram but also because it is not possible in the physical realm- leaves s person sad & miserable & it will distract them from from their worship. So it has traits of shirk; because a one’s devotion to Allah is being lessened by his love for other than Allah (the created).

وَمِنَ النّاسِ مَن يَتَّخِذُ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ أَندادًا يُحِبّونَهُم كَحُبِّ اللَّهِ ۖ وَالَّذينَ آمَنوا أَشَدُّ حُبًّا لِلَّهِ ۗ وَلَو يَرَى الَّذينَ ظَلَموا إِذ يَرَونَ العَذابَ أَنَّ القُوَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَميعًا وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ شَديدُ العَذابِ

“And [yet], among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love Allah . But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah . And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is severe in punishment.” [2:165]
