5-   Humbling oneself before Allaah The Almighty:

Ibn Al-Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy upon him, considered this as one of the causes that implant love for Allaah The Almighty in one’s heart. He said, "Humbling one’s heart before Allaah The Exalted is one of the most amazing causes of love, and when we speak about it, we only refer to names and description rather than the indescribable essence." [Madaarij As-Saalikeen]

Hence, when Allaah The Almighty wants to raise and honor a slave, He will make him humble himself before Him first. Then, the slave receives Divine support in accordance with the degree of his humbleness. Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {And already had Allaah given you victory at [the battle of] Badr while you were humble.} [Quran 3:123]

Hence, the blessings of Allaah The Almighty are sent down to engulf the humble and weak people: {And We wanted to confer favor upon those who were oppressed in the land and make them leaders and make them inheritors * And establish them in the land…} [Quran 28:5-6]

A slave becomes nearest to his Lord when he humbles himself before Allaah The Almighty. At this time, the mercy of Allaah The Almighty will be near him.

According to some narrations of the Children of Israel, Moosa (Moses), may Allaah exalt his mention, asked Allaah The Almighty, “Where should I seek Your pleasure and mercy?” Allaah The Almighty Said: “Search for My pleasure and mercy with the humble people.”

Hence, Allaah The Almighty may try you to hear your humble supplications, as He loves your cries because it implies that you humble yourself before Him and acknowledge your need for Him. This is the true meaning of worship, which is the main purpose of your creation; so, have you understood this meaning?
