What is love ?

Love is when Bilal (Radhiallahu 'anhu) stopped giving the adhan after the death of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)
Love is Bilal leaving Madina after the Prophet’s (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) death because everything reminded him of his beloved
Love is Bilal seeing the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) in a dream telling him, "what is with this dryness/distance oh Bilal?" when a long time had elapsed since he visited the Prophet's (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) grave, prompting Bilal to head to Madinah upon waking
Love is Bilal arriving in Madinah in the middle of the night and Hasan and Hussain (Radhiallahu 'anhum) finding him at the maqam of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) crying and Hasan and Hussain insisting that he give the adhan for Fajr. People came rushing to the masjid: weeping and anguished -
reminded of their days with the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)
Love is Bilal…when Umar ibn al Khattab (Radhiallahu 'anhu) asked him to give the adhan calling the army in Sham to prayer, and when he reached the part "Ashhadu anna Muhammadan Rasul Allah" began to weep uncontrollably, unable to finish the adhan, causing the entire army to weep with Umar (Radhiallahu 'anhu) being the most emotional of them all
Love is Bilal on his deathbed experiencing the pangs of death, with his family weeping for him, and Bilal (Radhiallahu 'anhu) saying, "Tomorrow I meet the beloveds: Muhammad and his companions"
