Hearts deify Him and souls yearn for Him


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

So, when a person knows the meaning of the name “Allah”, his heart gets attached to his Lord such as feeling such love, longing, and pleasure that are more beautiful and pleasant than all else. That is the greatest thing with which the worshipers worship Him and His pious servants get close to Him. 

{...He loves them, an d they love Him...}

[Surat al -Mā’idah: 54]

One’s real happiness depends on the  degree of his knowledge of Allah’s names and attributes.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) said: 

“There is a Paradise in the worldly life; whoever does not enter it will not enter Paradise in the Hereafter” 

One of the knowledgeable servants of Allah said: “Sometimes my heart experiences certain status in which I say: ‘If the dwellers of  Paradise will be in a status like this, they will surely have agood life.

Ibn ‘Uyaynah said:“Allah has not bestowed upon His se rvants a better favor than letting them know ‘Lailāha illallāh’ (there is no god except Allah). To them, ‘La ilāha illallāh’ (there is no god except Allah) in the Hereafter will be like water to them in the worldly life.”


The believer knows that this condition can only exist through the power and will of Allah Almighty. If Allah loves a servant, He puts love in his heart; and when the servant loves Him, through guidance from Allah, He still rewards him with additional love, and that is utter benevolence fr om the Almighty Lord, as it all comes from Him.
