Does Allah love me?


As-Salamu Alaykum (peace be upon you),

What Are The Signs of Allah’s Love For His Slave?

Praise be to Allah.

The love of Allah is “the status for which the righteous compete and strive. It is the nourishment of hearts and souls, the delight of the eyes. It is the life of which one who is denied it is dead, the light which the one who loses it is in deep darkness, the healing of which the one who is denied is sick, the joy which the one who is deprived of it lives in distress and pain. It is the spirit of faith and good deeds by means of which one may draw closer to Allah which, when it is absent, one is like a body in which there is no soul.”

O Allah, make us among those whom You love.

The love of Allah has signs and causes which are like the key to the door. These causes include the following:

Following The Guidance of The Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him)

Allah says in His Book: “Say (O Muhammad to mankind): If you (really) love Allah, then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Quran and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” [Noble Quran 3:31]

Being humble towards the believers and stern towards the Kafirs, waging Jihad for the sake of Allah, and not fearing anyone or anything but Him. Allah has mentioned these qualities in a single verse, in which He says:

“O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion (Islam), Allah will bring a people whom He will love and they will love Him; humble towards the believers, stern towards the disbelievers, fighting in the way of Allah, and never fear of the blame of the blamers” [Noble Quran 5:54]

In this verse Allah describes the attributes of those whom He loves, the first of which is: humility and not being arrogant towards the Muslims, and being stern towards the Kafirs, and not humbling or humiliating oneself before them. They (the ones whom Allah loves) strive for the sake of Allah, against the Shaytan, the Kuffar, the hypocrites and the evildoers, and they strive against their own selves (Jihad An-Nafs). They do not fear the blame of any blamer, because so long as they are following the commands of their religion, he will not care about anyone who mocks him or blames him.

Doing Nawafil (Supererogatory) Acts of Worship

Allah says – according to a Hadith Qudsi – “My slave keeps drawing near to me by means of supererogatory acts of worship until I love Him.”

Supererogatory acts of worship include Nawafil prayers, charity, ‘Umrah, Hajj and fasting.

Loving, Visiting One Another, Helping One Another (Financially) & Offering Sincere Advice to One Another For The Sake of Allah

These attributes were mentioned in a single Hadith in which the Messenger (Peace and blessings be upon him) narrated that his Lord said:

“My love is guaranteed for two who love one another for My sake; My love is guaranteed for two who visit one another for My sake; My love is guaranteed for two who help one another (financially) for My sake; My love is guaranteed to two who uphold ties with one another for My sake.” [Ahmad, classed as Sahih by Sheikh Al-Albani]

What is meant by “two who visit one another for My sake” is that they only visit one another for the sake of Allah, seeking thereby His pleasure for their loving one another for His sake or cooperating in worshipping Him.

Being Tested

Calamities and disasters are a test for a person, and this is a sign that Allah loves him, because this is like medicine: even though it is bitter, but still you offer the medicine, despite its bitterness, to the one whom you love; and Allah’s is the highest description. According to a Sahih Hadith:

“The greatest reward comes from the greatest trial. When Allah loves people, He tests them, and whoever accepts it gains the pleasure of Allah and whoever complains earns His wrath. [Ath-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah; classed as Sahih by Sheikh Al-Albani]

For calamities to befall the believer is better than punishments being stored up for him in the Hereafter. How can it be otherwise when he is raised in status and his bad deeds are erased thereby? The Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“When Allah wills good for His slave, He hastens his punishment in this world, and when He wills bad for His slave, He withholds his sins until he comes with them on the Day of Resurrection.” [Ath-Tirmidhi; classed as Sahih by Al-Albani]

The scholars have explained that the one from whom calamities and trials are withheld is the hypocrite, for Allah withholds [his punishment] in this world, so as to bring him with all his sins on the Day of Resurrection.

O Allah, make us among those whom You love.

If Allah loves you, do not ask about the good that you will attain and the virtue that you will acquire. It is sufficient for you to know that you are beloved of Allah. The great fruits of the love of Allah for His slave are as follows:

People Will Love Him And He Will Be Accepted on Earth

“When Allah loves a slave, He says to Jibril, ‘I love so-and-so, so love him,’ so Jibril loves him and then calls out to the people of heaven, ‘Allah loves so-and-so, so love him,’ and the people of heaven love him, and then acceptance is placed in the Earth for him.” [Bukhari]

What Allah has mentioned in the Hadith Qudsi of the great virtues of those whom He loves. It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: The Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“Whosoever shows enmity to someone devoted to Me, I shall be at war with him. My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him.” [Bukhari]

This Hadith Qudsi includes a number of benefits of Allah’s love for His slave:

“I am his hearing with which he hears” i.e., he does not listen to anything but that which Allah loves.

“his seeing with which he sees” i.e., he does not see anything but that which Allah loves.

“his hand with which he strikes” i.e., he does not do anything with his hand but that which Allah loves.

“and his foot with which he walks” i.e., he does not go towards anything but that which Allah loves.

“Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him” i.e., his Du’as are heard and his requests are granted.

“and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it” i.e., he is protected by Allah from all things.

We ask Allah to help us to please Him.

And Allah knows best.

Dying Ourselves In The Color of Allah


By Zainab Abaid
There is a bewildering array of lifestyles all around us in this world. Every lifestyle represents a unique set of behaviors, values and beliefs. If we think of each of these lifestyles as representing a different color of the spectrum, then the society we live in is a colorful place indeed. All around us, we see rich, vibrant hues – a million different colors, calling to a million different slogans, and a million different lifestyles. We were born into this dazzling array of color, and as we grow up, we find ourselves blinded by their brilliance, not knowing where to go, which color to follow, and which call to heed. There are the wild, bold colors of western society, calling us to fun and freedom, and to living life unfettered, ruled only by our desires. Then there are the soft, pastel hues of the East, representing a life of modesty, of living a life in the strict bounds of culture, ruled by family traditions and demands of your society, however outdated. There are the fresh, bright colors of childhood, of innocence and discovery, and the colors of youth, the wildest and brightest colors of the spectrum, the hues of dreams and emotions and energies at their very peak. There are the effervescent hues of wealth and prosperity, and the dull grays and browns of poverty. The duniya calls to us – a mirage of sparkling, shimmering color, and above everything, at all times, hangs the shadow of imminent death – the dull white mist threatening to shroud every color of life.
Born into this dazzling variety, it is difficult indeed to tear ourselves away from the shimmer and glitter of the colors of duniya, of the hundred different lifestyles that beckon to us all at once. It is difficult to bleach off the color we have grown up in, and adopt a different color entirely.But in all the beauty and glow of the world, in all its shining colors, there is not a single one so beautiful, so rich, so vibrant, and so completely mesmerizing, that its beauty cannot be described in words – it can only be experienced, and then only by donning it. That loveliest of colors is what the Quran calls sibghatallah – the Color of Allah.What is the Color of Allah? The meaning is not literal, of course, but refers to a lifestyle steeped in His obedience, a life lived purely and completely for Him, in which He is the center we revolve around and all others pale in comparison to Him – a life where He alone is the object of all our desires and emotions and our love.

Who does not want to escape the toil and turmoil and the sheer pretentiousness of our lives? Who does not want to replace the constantly shifting, restless hues by one, strong, lovely shade, the Color of Allah? Let us see then, how to accomplish this: how to dye ourselves completely in the Color of Allah.

To understand the concept better, we shall use an analogy – the analogy of a dyer dyeing a piece of cloth. Let us see what the fabric-dyeing process teaches us about coloring our own hearts and souls.

Identifying the Nature of the Fabric: 

Sometimes you go to the dyer with a piece of cloth and he tells you with an apology that it cannot be dyed; there is something with the structure of the cloth that prevents it from accepting any dye at all. Such a cloth is rejected outright. When we start to walk the path towards Allah, we need to make sure that we are ready to accept a new color and give up the old ones. We need to be ready to sacrifice everything we have and all we are to become the person Allah wants us to become.

Secondly, the cloth has to be strong enough to withstand the dyeing process, because as we shall see, this process places great strain on the cloth, and we certainly do not want it to disintegrate in the middle of the process. We similarly have to be strong and perseverant when walking on Allah’s path – we cannot give up each time we face a small hurdle; we cannot fall to pieces and refuse to move forward when we face criticism or a teacher’s scolding or any kind of trial. We have to be strong enough to go through the whole process.

Bleaching:

The first thing the dyer does is to bleach the fabric to remove the color it was dyed earlier; only then it can be dyed in the required new color. The bleaching process must be a painful one for the cloth, and requires a strong cloth to withstand it. Similarly, when we want to dye ourselves in the Color of Allah, we have to remove all earlier traces of all the other colors of the world – we have to rinse off our old prejudices, ideologies, beliefs and the lingering memories of sins. We have to cleanse our heart completely, repent for the error of our old ways, and hand ourselves completely over to Allah. We submit ourselves, like Ibrahim AS did, when he said:

أَسْلَمْتُ لِرَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

“I have submitted [in Islam] to the Lord of the worlds.” (2:131)


Now we are Allah’s to mould as He wishes, just as the bleached cloth is now the dyer’s to dye as he wishes.
Identifying and Preparing the New Required Color:Now the dyer needs to know exactly what color the cloth is required to be, and then prepare the chemical solution to dye the cloth in. Similarly, when adopting the color of Allah, we need knowledge of what He wants from us – knowledge of what it really means to be on Allah’s path. What lifestyle are we required to have? What activities do we have to stop and which ones do we have to adopt?

Immersing and Boiling the Cloth in the Dye:

This is the crucial stage in the fabric dyeing process. The cloth has to be fully immersed in the dye, and not just that, but it also has to be boiled in that solution for some time. The chemical is harsh and strong-smelling, not to mention boiling hot, so this again must be a painful process for the poor cloth. For us, immersing ourselves fully in Allah’s teachings is equally important, for there is nothing such as “partial” Islam – to practice Islam means to submit, and to submit every one of your desires completely to Allah, as we are told in the Quran:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا ادْخُلُوا فِي السِّلْمِ كَافَّةً

“O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely…” (2:208)


We have to sink completely into a new lifestyle, no resistance to any aspect of it. Further, like the cloth that is boiled for quite some time, we also need to stick to our efforts for sufficient time; otherwise, the color will not last. Attending one talk or studying a couple of surahs is not enough; we have to stick with our commitment for all 114 surahs, and even after that. Most important, we need to remember that the dyeing process requires boiling – we may get praise in this path, but we will also suffer hardship. Trials and tribulations will rain on us, and it will be painful, but if we want the dye to be strong and permanent, we have to persevere.
This point is often hard, and many people give up in this very stage. You have to leave behind desires, favorite pastimes, old routines, and easygoing lifestyles, and enter into a new life altogether. For some, the fear of becoming a social misfit drives them off at this point, for people who adopt the Color of Allah seldom fit in with all the other colors in society, and with family and friends.At this crucial stage, another thing the dyer needs is total focus – the slightest lapse of concentration can result in a severe, often irreversible mistake. We need similar focus when trying to understand the Word of Allah and when trying to tread His path – we cannot get to the spirit of Islam unless we focus fully on what we are required to do.

Testing the Color:

Now, once the cloth is dyed and ready, the dyer compares it with the ordered color – it needs to be a one hundred percent match to satisfy the customer. If the color is not quite what was required, he will again dip it into the dye and again boil it, until the required result is achieved. Similarly, when we think we have acquired the color of Allah – when we think we have become true, sincere Muslims – then we must prepare ourselves for tests. Hundreds of times along this path our faith will be tested, our priorities will be tested – Allah will send difficulties our way to make sure that the color does not fade when put under strenuous conditions. And if we do fail in our tests, then the dyeing process must be performed again, and again and again, until we truly emerge pure and sincere, and exactly the kind of people Allah wants us to be. And if still we fail, and we cling to our old colors and refuse to accept Allah’s color, then remember that no one has any use for a mismatched garment, and it is either made into a dust cloth or thrown away.

Once the cloth is dyed and ready, and the color is perfect, there are certain precautions you need to take:

You have to protect the cloth from stains of other colors – there are so many other colors being dyed in society, just as there are so many different colors being dyed at the dyer’s. Allah’s color needs to be pure, pristine – no other color must get mixed into it. For us, that means simply that all the other ideals and philosophies and all the warped notions of right and wrong going around in society should not affect our concepts – they must remain clear and based always on the Quran and Sunah.

Secondly, when we dye another color on top of the one that has already been dyed, the cloth usually comes out looking ugly. So we should not keep changing colors like a chameleon, influenced by others around us – stick to one color, the most beautiful of all colors, the color of Allah.

Third, the color should be fast – not like the cloth that looks beautiful when it is dyed, but fades out in one wash – it should remain strong no matter how many time it mixes with cloths of other colors. We need to make sure that once we have adopted the color of Allah, the environment does not make us fade – for faded colors hold no vibrancy, no attraction and no usefulness.

Why be afraid of adopting this honored lifestyle? Why are so many of us afraid to show the color that has seeped into our hearts? Why are we not proud of it? Reason: Shaitan has made this duniya so very appealing to us, that we cannot see anything else as beautiful. Either that, or that we have never opened the Quran to see the true beauty of the colors of Islam – we have never truly let its beauty into our souls, clouded as our minds are by the illusions of duniya. The answer to all those doubts, and every single one of our fears, is given by Allah in this very verse

وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ مِنَ اللَّهِ صِبْغَةً

When there is no other color even close to the beauty of Allah’s color, then we need to ask ourselves: what is stopping us from immersing ourselves in this beautiful lifestyle? Rush to it, embrace it, immerse yourself in it, and display it to the world!

Remember Allah…A Story!


The Pious Man and the Shopkeeper
 
 
There lived a pious man all by himself, who spent most of his time in praying, fasting and praising Allah. Almost all his waking hours were utilised in meditation and devotions. He was very happy with his spiritual progress. No wicked thoughts came to his mind and no evil temptations entered his heart.

One night, he dreamt a rather disturbing dream. He saw that a shopkeeper in the town was far superior to him in spirituality and that he must go to him to learn the basics of true spiritual life.

In the morning, the pious man went in search of the shopkeeper. He found him busy with his customers, selling goods and collecting money with a cheerful face. He sat there in a corner of the shop and watched the shopkeeper carefully. No signs of any spiritual life at all, he said to himself. His dream could not be true. But then he saw the shopkeeper disappear to pray his Salah. When he returned, he was busy dealing with money matters again.

The shopkeeper noticed the pious man sitting in the corner and asked: “As Salamu Alaikum, would you like something, brother?”

“Wa Alaikum As Salam. Oh! No! No!” said the pious man. “I don’t want to buy anything, but I want to ask you a question.” He then related his dream.

“Well, that is very simple to explain,” said the shopkeeper, “but you will have to do something for me before I answer your question.”

“I will do anything for you,” replied the pious man.

“All right! Take this saucer; there is some mercury in it. Go to the other end of the street and come back fast within half an hour. If the mercury falls out of the saucer, you will hear nothing from me. There you go now.”

The pious man took the saucer and started running. The mercury nearly wobbled out of the saucer. He saved it just in time, and slowed down. Then he remembered he had to return within half an hour, so he started walking at a fast pace. At long last he returned puffing and panting. “Here is your mercury, safe and sound,” he told the shopkeeper. “Now tell me the true interpretation of my dream.”

The shopkeeper looked at the pious man’s weary condition and asked him: “Well, friend, how many times did you remember Allah while you were going from this end of the street to the other?”

“Remember Allah!” exclaimed the pious man. “I did not remember Him at all. I was so worried about the mercury in the saucer.”

“But I do remember Him all the time,” said the shopkeeper. “When I am doing my business, I am also carrying mercury in a saucer. I am fair, honest and kind to my customers. I never forget Allah Ta’ala in my dealings with other men.”

“Men whom neither trade nor sale (business) diverts from the remembrance of Allaah (with heart and tongue) nor from performing As‑Salaah (Iqaamat‑as‑Salaah) nor from giving the Zakaah. They fear a Day when hearts and eyes will be overturned (out of the horror of the torment of the Day of Resurrection). That Allaah may reward them according to the best of their deeds, and add even more for them out of His Grace. And Allaah provides without measure to whom He wills” [Al Quran, Surah an-Noor 24:37-38]
