Loving non-Muslims is an act of disbelief
This allegation is completely groundless. The Prophet (PBUH) loved his uncle Abu Talib. Moreover, the Glorious Qur’an indicates that there may be inner love for non-Muslims as Allah (Glory be to Him) says, “Indeed, [O Muhammad], you do not guide whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided”(Al-Qasas:56).
How can those people claim that loving non-Muslims is banned while Allah permitted for Muslims to marry a non-Muslim woman and, necessarily, there shall grow between both of them all kinds of intimacy, affection and mercy?
