Love in human science is considered as an uncontrollable emotion arouses in particular circumstances.It can be sustained for some time or in some cases tied with human minds for rest of life, .On the other hand love as a sentiment is the different dispositions of natural and developed relations based on versatile experiences of life.
All over the world the love of God, mother, fathers, siblings and as lover for mating is recognized as strong human emotional bonding between two living beings .Love of money and having best things in one’s life take it into the category of materialistic persons and this intention is also seen in all living setup regardless of its association to particular sect and culture.
In all popular love stories of the world one lesson is quite obvious and it is its tragic ending along with rebellion attitude against blood relations and love ones who once cared him / her as priority of life.So in all love stories poets, writers and authors mostly try to project the passions of two immature, emotional minds as one of biggest human tragedy
In biological science love has different dimensions.
- It is usually referred to the passionate desire and intimacy of specific person for having sexual love .
- It can be linked to the natural emotional closeness of familial love where love of family members and blood relations has specific place in one’s life.
- It can be part of the platonic love that defines friendship of two or more on the basis of social and virtual need of individuals.People say in a genuine platonic love, the beautiful or lovely person highly inspires the mind and the soul and directs one’s attention up to spiritual level of human mind.This has nonsexual and can exist even in non contact relations between human minds.
Religious Love promotes complete devotion of human minds toward God and His real messengers known as Prophets.This love has an orthodox philosophy and can be projected and protected by strict blasphemy laws.
Plato and his students.
So through chemical and physical basis it is found that love is defined by different ways:
Human on regular phases of life is all time vulnerable to different kind of serious attachments in his/her complete life span.
The most important feature of love among two persons, communities and in any relation is to create frictionless passions which is highly required in time of trouble, loneliness and in conflict.I t can provide strength or weakness to moral character of individuals,It can over rule the positive attitude of any docile person or turn down the negative attitude of criminal minded people.
Saying someone or any one that you love him or her shouldn’t be limited to words but it is a serious commitment of whole life which needs consistent human effort to stick to this attachment.To love somebody is not an imaginary words but real responsibility for remaining life.
One need to passionately expand his/her area of acquaintance to remain well-informed and cared by other living beings as natural urge. But loving somebody, any relation and anything puts lot of responsibility in one’s shoulder,the responsibility which should be free of response of lover,materialistic desires and always consistent whatever the ups and downs comes in one life.Actually this kind of love becomes the real support and hope of one’s life.This God gifted passion has no value in words and only responsible attitude of mature minds can fulfill and present real spirit and strength of this powerful sentiment.
Concept of Love in Islam:
God’s love is considered as genuine love ,a part of His own essence and reward. His love for his creatures gives them reason of their existence, divine grace and empowerment and omen of eternal life.
It strongly emphasizes that one gives up selfishness and love without expecting anything in return.So in return man with good heart and conduct would receive divine’s love.It is somehow like a give and take process not in terms of things but in form of virtual contentedness .Islam explicitly enforce to love our responsibility as an obligation and in case of negligence , severe punishments are explained to refrain people of avoiding their responsibilities toward their love ones.
It is very important that misuse of loving passions is highly forbidden in any Islamic society.An overindulged child, a spoiled wife or a selfish and illegitimate lover is highly disliked in Islamic society .Islam strictly follows the limits”Hud” in all loving relation.A child should be monitored with balanced love for his/her grooming for responsible life, parents should be dealt with grace of love and spouses are covered of each others’ love and satisfaction .All such kind of love is foundation stone of family building process which ultimately produces positive affects on any community.
The movie “Earthling”
This movie excellently explained the concept of love between two individuals of quite different ages who were strangers.Here a dying old man who throughout his life never believed in passion of love had met a child who had accidentally lost his parents in an isolated area.He was not interested in helping that child but that child due to unavailability of any physical support around him, forcibly attached to that old man.That child was snubbed and discouraged by old chap as he always considered responsibility as burden. But in different circumstances child had become full dependent on this angry man.Here this dependency started tending toward developing strong intimacy in cold heart of old man.After this evolution of sentiments he started protecting and teaching that child that how could be survive alone if he died too.So when he died a feared child become an independent problem solver under his loving training.So over all good and lesson learning presentation of love and responsibility in simple and touching way.
