The Lover submits & obeys the Beloved

In a famous poem, Imam Shafi رحمه الله says:

You express the love of Allāh
And yet You disobey Him
This is very strange indeed
If your love for Allāh was true then you would have obeyed him
For indeed the one who loves, obeys the beloved
اِنَّ الْمُحِبَّ لِمَنْ يُّحِبُّ مُطِيْعٌ
Verily, the lover submits to his beloved
(Fazaile amaal)
