What form should love of Allah take?

The deep love we feel for our Almighty Lord, Who created us from nothing, is a deep-rooted one consisting of a combination of several emotions. It contains a feeling of submission towards our Almighty Lord, a powerful feeling of trust in the infinite mercy of Allah, respect for His omniscience, and awe in the face of the beauties created by Him. There is also a faithfulness and devotion stemming from the knowledge that Allah is Lord of all. Someone who is aware of all these is bound to our Lord with a most joyous love. That love is true and pure. The love that believers feel for our Lord is described as follows in the Qur’an:

Some people set up equals to Allah, loving them as they should love Allah. But those who believe have greater love for Allah. If only you could see those who do wrong at the time when they see the punishment, and that truly all strength belongs to Allah, and that Allah is severe in punishment. (Surat al-Baqara,165)
