بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Love is a verb that as Muslims, we engage in daily.

Heeding God’s command is an example of showing our love for Allah.

Love exists for the Creator, and showing love to His creations is also a sign of our love for Allah, who is Al Wadud (The Loving).

Here are five shows, from around the Muslim world, about love for you to enjoy on Qalbox:

Based on a true story of the late Dato ‘S. Roomai Noor and the late Datin Umi Kalsom about their last moments together while performing umrah, Door No. 9 of the Prophet’s Mosque is a story of love and loyalty to the last breath.
