It has been related by Al-Miqdaam bin Ma’di Karib that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

“If any of you loves his brother then he should inform him”

(Tirmidhi, Hadeeth Hasan Sahih)

Also it was narrated from Anas ibn Maalik (may Allaah be pleased with him) that a man was with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) when another man passed by and he said:

O Messenger of Allaah, I love this man.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to him: “Have you told him?”

He said: No.

He said: “Tell him.”

So he caught up with him and said: I love you for the sake of Allaah.

He said: May the one for Whose sake you love me also love you.

Abu al-Aswad al-Du’ali, the grammarian who said:

و أحبب إذا ما أحببت حبّاً مقارباً *** فإنك لا تدري: متى أنت نازع
When you love, love with a love that draws you close
For you do not know: when will you depart?

و أبغض إذا أبغضت غير مجانب *** فإنك لا تدري متى أنت راجع
