When Allah takes something out of your life, say Alhamdulillah. You say “Ihdinas siratal mustaqeem” 17 times everyday. Then don’t you think Allah wants good for you?
Do not make things intellectual, make it a firasat (hunch), and until then make salawat to the Prophet salAllahualayhiwassalam. It will be a means of guidance for you. The Prophet salAllahualayhiwassalam said, “Sending the salawat to me will send light in your grave, the reward is that Allah subhanahuwata’ala will send salat on you, and what happens when Allah sends salat on you, his angels will also send salat on you to bring you out of darkness to the light. The closer you get to the light, the more you will be in oneness.”
Emulate them, be in the good gatherings, be in the good company of people who are close to Allah.
There are different kinds of beauty,
How do we perceive inner beauty, through the light of inner vision is when we can see the light of knowledge.
Fitrah is the original nature that Allah has created. Spirituality is about returning to the state of fitrah as an adult. When you are a baby you are in state of fitrah, pure. Babies cry because they need their diapers changed, they need to eat when they’re hungry, but when you are an adult, you gain mastery over your physical needs.
The human being is an Essence and the manifestation of the Essence, and your essence is your spirit.
When the trumpet is blown twice, everything dies but the human spirit does not die.
True love comes in the infinity of the Divine Light in oneself as Allah mentions in this ayah “Is the only love of the heart that shaytan can get to you.” But when you do dhikr for Allah, shaytan will run away from you. Becoming Muslim is not about conversion, it’s about expansion. “Allah expanded his heart for Islam.” The whole affair about the human being is about expansion. And through expansion of the heart, one can grow closer to Allah swt.
Islam means submission to Allah subhanahuwata’ala and that you are upon that light from your Rabb. In reaching from one stage to another by nurturance to completion in perfection. Realizing the attributes of the names of Allah subhanahuwata’ala. Islam is becoming the reality of what you already are.
It is our vile qualities that seal the quality of the soul. This is the reason that Allah subhanahuwata’ala advises us not to be jealous, not to be arrogant etc. Bad character veils your soul from gazing upon the Divine. The more you give it up, the more you are able to see the heart.
Make this dua:
The Messenger of Allah salAllahualayhiwassalam said, “One of Prophet Dawud’s supplications was:
‘Allahumma inni as’aluka hubbaka, wa hubba man yuhibbuka, wal-‘amalalladhi yuballighuni hubbaka. Allahumm-aj’al hubbaka ahabba ilayya min nafsi, wal ahli, wa minal-ma’il-baridi'”
(O Allah! I ask You for Your Love, the love of those who love You, and the actions that will cause me to attain Your Love. O Allah! Make Your Love dearer to me than myself, my family and the cold water)
Two things that increase the Love for Allah subhanahuawata’ala:
