Love and hate... in moderation

I take great comfort in the words of my Beloved (Swt). Whose Words never fail to touch the core of my heart, nor the depths of my soul:

"And it may be that you hate a thing though it is good for you,

And love a thing though it is bad for you.
Allah (Swt) Knows and you know not." [2:216]
Thus, do not love a thing too much,
for the thing which you so love,
you may one day grow to hate.
And do not hate a thing too much,
for the thing which you so hate,
you may one day grow to love.
Rather have moderation in all that you do,
and remember that Allah (Swt) is Ever-Watchful over you.

That's it! When we follow our human tendencies, chances are we may err; and when we tread wisely, on a righteous path, then such a living in moderation fills contentment in our hearts.
