LOVE FOR ALLAH – A FIVE-POINT PRESCRIPTION

Search your hearts to discern if you have perfect love for Allah Ta’ala. If you lack love, then strive in its acquisition. For the attainment of this objective, I present the following prescription:
(1) In seclusion engage in Thikrullah even 15 or 20 minutes daily. The niyyat should be to cultivate the love of Allah Ta’ala.
(2) Sit in solitude at any time for a few minutes and meditate on the bounties of Allah Ta’ala. Then reflect on your treatment of Allah’s favours and on Allah’s Mercy despite your ingratitude.
(3) Foster a relationship with the devotee of Allah Ta’ala. If being physically in their company is difficult, then communicate with them by letter. However, do not burden them with your worldly problems. Seek guidance from them of the path leading to Allah Ta’ala. Let them treat your spiritual maladies and request them to make Dua for you.
(4) Submit in total obedience to the laws of Allah Ta’ala.
Such submission will increase love for Him.
(5) Constantly make Dua to Allah Ta’ala for His love.
Give practical expression to the five-point prescription. Insha-Allah, soon the Love of Allah Ta’ala will germinate and salvation from all spiritual ills will be achieved.
(To this prescription should be added perpetual Thikr. Perpetual Thikr is to keep the Name of Allah Ta’ala constantly on the tongue. While walking, sitting, lying down and in all walks of life keep the tongue fresh with Thikrullah. This is the primary way of achieving the Love of Allah Ta’ala. – Mujlisul Ulama)
