Love is essential but not enough-
2:138 Hue of God! And who can give a better hue (to life) than God? And it is He alone Whom we serve.
[Hue of God = We take our hue from God. Nearest to God are those who have adopted His Sibghah = Hue or Color = His attributes in the human capacity. 83:28. That means adopting the Divine Attributes in our limited human capacity such as:
kindness - creativity – attaining wisdom – knowledge - peacefulness – remaining informed and aware – sense of duty - determination – justice – protecting others – giving – sense of responsibility]
And note that-
7:180 All Names of God are the fairest names. You can invoke Him by any of them. Be mindful not to over-emphasize a single attribute of His. Leave the company of those who take one of His Attribute and run aside to dwell upon it. They will soon be awarded for their misdoings. [The Merciful God is also a Just God. God is not Love only, He dislikes the oppressors. 4:171, 17:110, 41:40]
