10 reasons which cause Love of Allah

Ibn Al Qayyimrahimahullâh – says:

“The reasons which cause mahabbah of Allâh to develop, are ten:

Firstly: Reciting the Qur‘ân, reflecting and understanding its meaning and its intent.

Secondly: Drawing closer to Allâh – the Most High – through optional deeds, after fulfilling the obligatory duties.

Thirdly: Being continuous in the dhikr (remembrance) of Allâh, with the tongue, the heart and the limbs – under all circumstances. The more constant the dhikr, the more mahabbah develops and intensifies.

Fourthly: Giving precedence to what Allâh loves over personal loves, when being overcome by desires.

Fifthly: Contemplating and deliberating over the Names and Attributes of Allâh.

Sixthly: Recognising and remembering the favours and bounties of Allâh – both the manifest and hidden.

Seventhly: To be humble and submissive before Allâh – and this is the greatest matter.

Eightly: To be in seclusion reciting the Qur‘ân, during that time in which Allâh descends to the lowest heaven (which is the last third of every night), finishing this recitation with seeking Allâh’s forgiveness and repenting to Him.

Ninthly: To sit in the gatherings of true and sincere lovers of Allâh, reaping the fruits of their speech, and not to speak except if there is benefit in it and that you know that such talk will increase you in goodness and that it will benefits others as well.

Tenthly: To stay clear of all those causes which distances the heart from Allâh – the Mighty and Majestic.

So these are the ten reasons which cause the person to develop true love for Allâh and to reach the rank of al-muhabbah, by which he reaches his Beloved.” [Madârijus-Sâlikîn (3/17-18).]

I know I don’t post to this blog too regularly but I just wanted to say thank you to the well wishers who send me such kind messages. I do read them even if I don’t publish them. May Allah bless you all and increase us in obedience to Him.

Ar Ra’d 13:11
Change starts with you.
"The building of the ummah is by building up of the individual, so a person should begin with himself and then those nearest to him then those after them.
So if an individual becomes better, then his family becomes better, and if the family becomes better the community gets better, and if the community becomes better, the city (where he lives) becomes better, and if the city becomes better, the ummah becomes better, and if the ummah gets better, the earth becomes better.
Allah will never change the condition of a people until they change what is in their own selves.”

Hadith Qudsi:

On the authority of Abu Harayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: Allah the Almighty said:

I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assemble better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I draw near to him a fathom’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed.

It was related by al-Buhkari (also by Muslim, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn-Majah).

Yusuf 12:86
See, we humans are flawed, prone to making mistakes. So how does it make sense to rely on other people to ease that discontentment within your heart? Why not instead turn to the One who is free from all imperfections? The One who created you and sustains you. The One who can answer your supplications and bring you true peace.

Tell Me! The water that you drink. Is it you who cause it from the rainclouds to come down, or are We the Causer of it to come down? If We willed, We verily could make it salt (and undrinkable), why then do you not give thanks (to Allah)?
