How God loves you
In the name of Allah the most gracious
the most merciful
Praise be to Allah who is described alone by the best descriptions and complete features, He descended from His Majesty and appeared to people in His bounties and His grants, He is the Apparent that is hidden for the hearts of the people of adjacency and the Hidden that appears to the sights of the people of certainty, as Allah says:
57-3: "He is the First and the Last, the Evident and the Immanent: and He has full knowledge of all things."
Blessing and peace be upon the lamp of darkness, the full moon and the light of bodies, our master Mohammad who removed the darkness and the key of general and special rightness for believers and all people, Allah prays upon him, his dutiful family, his companions who inherited guidance and last men and all those who call by his call to the Day of Judgment.
Believers long, benefactors look forward and people of certainty hope to be near to Allah, their wish and desiresis to get a glance of His entire beauty by His bounty or to grant them His connection or to expose His grants for them or to grant them His greatest satisfaction to get His adjacency and His contentment.
When Allah sees the longing of lovers, the adoration of demasterous people and the love of people who always repent to Allah, He opened the door for His righteous people, showed them the unseen of his bounties and faced them by the secret of his duration. When He faced them by this, they got puzzled; He faced them by His hidden secret so they became heedful. Imam Abul-Aza'em said describing this:
"The one single righteous man is loved by his creator; he passed all degrees by his reality and strengthening. In every single breath he faces light from the majesty of Allah to entertain and assure him. He walks on land in humbleness and humility; all creatures adore and long to him. You can see his body but his reality in unknown, the one single righteous man is by his reality not by his body. Only people of confrontation can know the one single righteous man, they purified themselves and Allah purified them so they survived and followed the right way and religion."
When we see that followers are confused about the right path that they should follow to get Allah's love and His satisfaction, we presented this fact for them according to what is narrated in the origins of Sharia and what the people of adjacency saw in the lights of fact.
The follower who wants to get Allah's love needs:
• To be occupied totally by Allah.
• To be truthful in following Allah's beloved and chosen.
• To be faithful in his intentions in all his deeds for Allah.
• To direct himself by good knowledge, assured determination and long patience until he gets Allah's protection, then he really follows what Allah says:
50-37: "Or who gives ear and earnestly witnesses (the truth)."
We made this book based on:
• Illustrating descriptions and manners Allah loves whoever followed them.
• As well as deeds and works that if someone followed them he is loved by Allah.
• In addition to deeds of Sunna that Allah's beloved and chosen kept doing and also righteous people that if someone kept doing them he gets Allah's love.
We dealt with these topics in spiritual sittings with lots of people of clarity and we concentrated on:
• Explaining the verses Allah says He loves those who follow them such as:
1-222: "For Allah loves those who turn to Him constantly and He loves those who keep themselves pure and clean."
• As well as the Ahadeeth that show things Allah asks His creatures to do to get His satisfaction, such as what Allah says in the divine Hadeeth:
"Whoever antagonizes one of my righteous people, he is my enemy. There is nothing get a servant nearer to Me better than what I ask him to do. A servant still does optional acts of worship until I love him. If I love him, then I am his hearing by which he hears, his sight by which he sees, his hand by which he deals, his leg by which he walks, if he asks me, I'll give him and if he seeks protection by Me, I'll protect him. I never hesitate in doing anything as I do when taking a believer's life, he hates death and I hate offending him."
I ask Allah to make this work useful for those who attend, read or hear it.
Oh Allah, give us what You promised to give us, grant us what You willed for us from grants and nearness, You never break a promise.
18-10: "Oh Our Lord, bestow on us Mercy from Yourself, and dispose of our affair for us in the right way."
May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon our prophet Mohammed, the secret of the treasures of care and suns of concern and upon his family and his companions.
