Loving Paradise & Fearing Hell - Shirk ?

There is this misunderstanding in the Ummat today where some people say that when a person loves Paradise or hates Hell, then he or she has committed Shirk. This is incorrect.

The definition of Shirk is to ascribe partners to Allah.

A person loving Jannah (Paradise) and hating Jahannam (Paradise) does not ascribe partners with Allah in doing so. In fact, that person is following the order of Allah in doing so, to much of Allah SWT's pleasure.
