The author treats in a simple and accessible style with reader-friendly and teaching-friendly features, not only the love of God and love of the neighbour, but also the family love; friendship; the stages of falling in love; sexual love; extra-marital love; beauty; taste and much more, all based entirely on the Holy Qur’an. At least one verse from every chapter – and over one fifth of the total text of the Holy Qur’an is cited.
