“The common aim of the advent of all the Prophets peace be upon them, is that they should establish the sincere and true love of God; and they should create brotherhood of human beings and make them love one another; unless things take this shape, all is nothing but formality.
“So far as the love of God is concerned, only God knows whether it is there or not. But things can be understood with some signs that they are expected to possess for example, if there is fruit on the lower part of the tree, the fruit is expected to be there on the upper part also.
“But if there are no fruits on the lower part, how can one be certain that the upper part has any?
Likewise, if a man loves his fellow beings and has a sense of oneness with them and also he is moderate as God wishes people to be, then it can be understood that he cherishes love for God.
“Thus looking after the rights of the people and brotherly relation with them give the glad tiding that the man has a tinge of the love of God, as well.”
