Q: Is there any limit in loving one’s husband? Me and my husband are trying our best to abide by the rules of Shar’iah, we remind each other about ahkaamat of Allah taala. So alhmdulillah our relationship is filled with love. So we want to express our love for each other. So can I say to my husband I love you more than anything / you are my everything/ you are my world/my heart is perfect because you are inside /my day and night is filled with your thoughts and so on? Will it be like I am telling I love him more than Allah and his messenger? But in my heart it is not like that, even though I love my husband intensely, Alhmdulillah I love Allah and his Rasul (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and I don’t agree with anyone where ahkamat of shariah will be broken if I do so, be it my beloved husband.
A: Yes, it is permissible.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
