Loving a person or something like worshiping, is shirk (associating partners to Allah).
Loving, or regarding someone or something like loving Allah is shirk (al-Araf  189-190; al-Baqkara  165; at-Tawba  24). Of course, other people or other things can be loved together with Allah (al-Baqara  165). However, at the centre and in the first place of our lives should always be the Allah. Allah should not be pushed into second place.
