Best tabeyeen and love with Allah
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Q-1: the name of the auther of the book `alzuazeer an ecterats al kabaer
Beloved brother, we regret that we have not read the above book and have no knowledge about its author or its contents.
Q-2: who was the best tabein whose name was mentioned by our prophet mohammad (pbuh).
The term tabeen is generally used for the generation of those people who saw the noble companions of the Messenger of Allah (saws) in a state of belief. The Messenger of Allah (saws) had at least 100,000 companions or sahabees who saw him in the state of belief, and Allah Subhanah Alone knows how many tabeeens saw and learnt their deen from the noble companions of the Messenger of Allah!
The Messenger of Allah (saws) did not have the knowledge of the unseen, and therefore it is inconceivable that he mentioned who the best tabeen would be after his death!
Q-3: The last question is what is the different `I love allah & I love with allah?
When someone declares that he loves Allah Subhanah, it would mean he recognizes his Creator, obeys and follows His appointed Messengers, obeys and follows His Guidance, submits himself to the Will of his Merciful Lord, does whatever pleases his Lord, abstains from whatever displeases and angers his Lord and Creator, and knows for sure that One Day he will be brought forth to answer for his deeds in the Lords Presence! Such a person truly loves Allah Subhanah.
When someone declares I love with Allah it would mean that he loves the things, people, or acts, or rites, or Signs, etc. which Allah Subhanah Himself Loves. For example, Allah Subhanah indeed loves His Messenger (saws), thus the person who loves with Allah also loves the Messenger (saws)! Or Allah Subhanah loves a righteous and pious believing slave who worships Him Alone, thus the person who loves with Allah also loves this pious and righteous believer!
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.431 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws) said, "If Allah loves a person, He calls Jibrael (a.s.) saying, 'Allah loves so and-so; O Jibrael! Love him.' Hadrat Jibrael (a.s.) would love him, and make an announcement amongst the inhabitants of the Heavens: 'Allah loves so-and-so, therefore you should love him also,' and so all the inhabitants of the Heaven would love him, and then he is granted the pleasure of the people on the earth."
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
