9-   Dealing honestly and sincerely with Allaah The Almighty in addition to disobeying one’s whims:

Abu Haazim, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said, “If you abide by two characteristics, I can assure you that you will go to Paradise: leave what you love and endure what you dislike as long as Allaah The Almighty loves this.”

Fat-h Al-Mawsili, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said, “Whoever uses his heart to look at the Beloved, will be rewarded with the delight of seeing Him; whoever gives precedence to the commands of Allaah The Almighty over his own desires, he would be endowed with Divine love; whoever longs for Him, relinquishes anything other than Him, observes His rights, and fears Him without seeing Him, will be rewarded with seeing His honorable Face on the Day of Judgment.”

These are indeed great glad tidings…

If one keeps contemplating the Names and Attributes of Allaah The Almighty, He will open his heart and fill it with pleasure and happiness, leaving no room for misery or sadness. Whoever gives precedence to the commands of Allaah The Almighty over his own inclinations and desires, preferring Allaah The Almighty and obedience to Him over his whims, then Allaah The Almighty will reward Him with the best, because our Lord is Ever-Thankful. Hence, He will grant such a slave His love, which is the greatest blessing.

Try to lower your gaze and say privately what Yoosuf, may Allaah exalt his mention, said (which means): {And if You do not avert from me their plan, I might incline toward them and [thus] be of the ignorant.} [Quran 12:33]

Keep doing this and I swear you will find it pleasurable and delightful. This is because whoever leaves anything for the sake of Allaah The Almighty, He will compensate him with what is better. Is there any compensation better than being loved by Allaah The Almighty?

Dear sister, try not to expose your beauty and adornment and give up wearing tight and improper clothes only for the sake of Allaah The Almighty and resist your desire to be sought and preyed upon by impassioned eyes. Try to do this for the sake of Allaah The Almighty, and say what Moosa, may Allaah exalt his mention, said (which means): {and I hastened to You, my Lord, that You be pleased} [Quran 20:84]

In this case, Allaah The Almighty will protect you, thank you for this sacrifice, and reward you greatly.

What are you waiting for?

Do you not want to be loved by Allaah The Almighty?
