One of the greatest rewards – achieving the love of Allah swt

    Imam Ibn ul Qayyim,   said there are 10  ways of bringing about  the love of Allah  swt.  All of them  involve seeking knowledge:
  • Recitation of Quran, reflection and understanding
  • After obligatory acts of ibadat, doing superogatory acts
  • constant remembrance in every circumstance by the to tongue and actions
  • Preferring His love over your own
  • Comprehension of Allah swt Names and attributes, witnessing them and having knowledge of them
  • Witnessing and acknowledging His generosity and His Benevolence, Favours and blessings
  • The hearts total defeat and humility in front of Allah
  • Being alone at the time of descent of Allah for having private conversations with Him, reciting His Words and repenting in front of Him
  • Sitting with the truthful lovers of Allah and gathering the good fruits
  • Keeping distant from everything that comes between the heart and Allah, the Mighty the Majestic
    From  these 10 ways can  the love of Allah  be reached and the  chief fundamental principle  behind that comprise  two.  Preparing the  soul for it and  opening the eye to  keen, sure knowledge.
