Salam 

What’s your personal opinion? 

I feel it is Abit of both 

And depends on the circumstances 

May be it is logical and not illogical. The reason of this is that may be initially someone may fall for someone's physical appearance which is not love but desire. Love is something else that is to say, a person in whose presence you may feel no need of other person and you feel to be complete. Once Imam Jafar al Sadiq a.s was asked what is love. Imam Jafar al Sadiq a.s said that when a person sees another person whose inherent essence is same as that of inherent essence of another, these thing appeal to them and they feel attracted and hence feel happy in their presence. I do not know may be if I have correct translation.

Love and hatred. Love and hatred are not blind, but are blinded by the fire they themselves carry with them. 

Learning to love. We must learn to love, learn to be kind, and this from earliest youth; if education or chance give us no opportunity to practice these feelings, our soul becomes dry and unsuited even to understanding the tender inventions of loving people. Likewise, hatred must be learned and nurtured, if one wishes to become a proficient hater: otherwise the germ for that, too, will gradually wither.

Love and respect. 'o Love desires; fear avoids. That is why it is impossible, at least in the same time span, to be loved and respected by the same person. For the man who respects another, acknowledges his power; that is, he fears it: his condition is one of awe." But love acknowledges no power, nothing that separates, differentiates, ranks higher or subordinates. Because the state of being loved carries with it no respect, ambitious men secretly or openly balk against it. N

I think love is something you feel, however, it's not something you decide to feel. Love can just happen without you aiming for it to happen. You can involuntarily fall in love. But, it's up to you to make logical decisions about different things related to how you feel. When a persons in love, it's very hard to make rational and logical decisions so i dont think they're interrelated. But its important to use logical reasoning when your in love, even though it might be hard.

Neither. Love is a set of actions motivated by an emotional response to a decision. The decision or the emotion are at best nothing at worst dangerous, if not paired with the set of actions.

It’s both.

Loving someone is a feeling that happens differently for everyone. Sometimes it’s a slow burn (like when I fell in love with my SO, it wasn’t intense in the beginning.) other times it just hits you.

Deciding to love someone for the long run, through the ups and the downs, is logical and emotional.

    • It is important that the readers also understand the sequences  that lead up to saqifa. 1) The calamity of pen and paper, Umar denying Rasulullah (pbuh@hf) to write a will for the Ummah. 2) Close companion of Rasulullah (pbuh@hf) not joining the battalion Usama. 3) Did Rasulullah (pbuh@hf) call Abu Bakr to lead the prays?  4) Where was Abu Bakr when Rasulullah (pbuh@hf) had called him? 5) Umar denying that Rasulullah (pbuh@hf) died. 6) Umar in state shock then suddenly runs of to Saqifa. 7) Senior companions not attending the burial of the Prophet (pbuh&hf)   These are some of the events that lead up to Saqifa, and are recorded in Sunni Sahih books.
    • Did anyone in the Uk watch the show The Truth About Muslim Marriages (that could also have been called why women have no brain) Thoughts?  
    • Kurds is now no more an option. The situation is very unstable for KSA as The upcoming king has vowed to changed the axis of economy from Oil to other sectors. His Modern version of KSA will receive huge blows from Wahhabi doctrine "scholars" sitting in there but will be praised by the youths who account 2/3rd of the population. This in itself is not easy to handle for MBS. Next is External relations, KSA is trying to settle for a Peace treatment with Israel for Palestine. The treaty leaked stated a point where it was clearly mentioned that Jerusalem will be open to both the parties and thus this again will face a huge criticism from Wahhabi "scholars". Israel will most likely try to push its vassal state - US to go on an unwanted war with Iran. KSA will try to isolate Hizbollah and Lebanon. But by Gods Will all their plans will again be dead as it has happened since 2006. They thought of - 1. Sending Takfiris to Syria and Iraq and create Middle eastern Chaos and then find it as an excuse to set up "Security centers" for the "protection" of civilians. 2. They tried to do same with Lebanon but failed there too.
