Taking the initiative and trying to draw closer to Allaah The Almighty
19- Taking the initiative and trying to draw closer to Allaah The Almighty:
In a Qudsi Hadeeth, Allaah The Almighty Says: “O son of Aadam, move towards Me and I will walk towards you; walk towards Me and I will hurry towards you.”[Ahmad] [Al-Albaani: Saheeh]
Hence, whoever seeks the Love of Allaah The Almighty sincerely, should know that Allaah The Almighty will come towards him at twice the speed, and the faster he gets, the sooner he will reach his destination.
A righteous man once said, “Spread good deeds and try to draw closer to Allaah The Almighty through acts of obedience. I have never seen anything more satisfactory to the Lord than what He loves; so, take the initiative and hurry to please Him, and He will love you sooner than you expect.” Then, he wept and said, “Showing patience with love for Allaah The Almighty and His will is the source of all good things.”
So, show Allaah The Almighty something good and believe practically that you love Allaah The Almighty and really want Him to love you and be pleased with you. Draw closer to Him through doing as many good deeds as you can.
