Home » » Definition of Love

Love can be defined as a strong feeling of deep affection for somebody or something. Love can be classified into various types: universal love, parental love, friendly love, sexual love or romantic love, married love, neighbourly love, monetary love and specific love. 

Universal love means you love all things and beings created by Allah. For example, Coleridge talks of universal love in his poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”. Parental love is the affection exists between parents and children parents for their children. Friendly love is what friends have for each other. 

Lovers have romantic or sexual love for each other. Married love is the love of the married couple. When you love some hobby or habit or game, it is specific love. For example, your love for study of Shakespeare. Neighborly love is the love for your neighbor. Monetary love ts the Strong passion that you have for money. The advantage of love is that it “conquers all”. It makes the world go round. 

The disadvantage or danger of love cannot be ascribed to every kind of love. For example, universal love is always good, but monetary love is always bad. There is a proverb, “The love of money is thé root of all evil.” Too much romantic love leads to death or suicide. Bacon rightly said, “Nuptial love maketh mankind; friendly love perfecteth it; but wanton love corrupteth or embaseth it.” Love should be for an appropriate person or thing, and in appropriate measure.
