Allah’s love?

A spiritual aspirant wrote,“I query if there is any love of Allah, most High in my heart or not?” 

Hadhrat Hakim al-Umma Mawlana Ashraf ‘Ali Thanawi (may Allah have mercy on him) replied, “This thought is a proof of Allah’s love itself. Evidence of proof essentially validates what it is trying to prove. Hence, inshaAllah, love (of Allah) is certainly present.”
