Man and Woman

Man says he cares about me
--so I must stay home—

Man says he protects me
--so I must hide myself from public--

Man says he loves me
--so I must listen to whatever he tells me--

Man says he adores me
--so I must do what he wants me to—

Man says he knows what is good for me
--so I must obey him--

Man: “I do all these because I love you my darling. Please understand.”
Woman: “If you love me my dear. Let me do things I want to do. Don’t imprison me. Don’t domesticate me.”

That's the most basic thing in life => respect each other!!! And don't force what we want to someone else, moreover with 'abusing' LOVE. :) (e.g. "I love you, darling, please understand why I want you to do this.")

Those who are closer to Allah will only do things for the sake of Allah for Allah Almighty Knows the Secrets of Our Hearts "...and fear Allah for Allah knoweth well the secrets of your hearts." (Qur'an: Translation of the meaning, 5:7) and Allah Almighty is With us Through His Knowledge "He (Allah) said: Fear not, erily I am with you both, Hearing and Seeing." (Qur'an: Translation of the meaning, 20:46).

For them, there is no such thing as abusing love for Allah knows whatever in our hearts. Abusing it means abusing Allah.
Rasulullah s.a.w. also was reported as saying; "Allah created mercy with a hundred parts. One of which was sent down upon the jinn and human beings and other living creatures. It is out of this one part that they love each other, show kindness to one another, and even the animals treat their offspring with affection. Allah has reserved the remaining ninety-nine parts for his true worshippers on the Day of Judgment."

Let's make ourselves closer to Allah.

As long as people don't abuse the term "let us make ourselves close to Allah" :-p
