10 Ways of Developing Love for Allah – Imam Ibn Ul Qayyim al Jawziyyah (rahimahullah)

IMG_20180813_054019From Madarij-us-Saalikeen (The State of Repentance)

Shaykh says: the reasons which cause mahabbah (love) of Allaah to develop, are ten:

First: Reciting the Qur’an, reflecting and understanding its meaning and its intent.

Second: Drawing closer to Allaah, the Most High, through optional deeds, after fulfilling the obligatory duties.

Third: Being continuous in the dhikr (remembrance) of Allaah, with the tongue, the heart and the limbs under all circumstances. The more continuant the dhikr, the more muhabbah develops and intensifies.

Fourth: Giving precedence to what Allaah loves over personal loves, when being overcome by desires.

Fifth: Contemplating and deliberating over the Names and Attributes of Allaah.

Sixth: Recognising and remembering the favours and bounties of Allaah both manifest and hidden.

Seventh: To be humble and submissive before Allaah and this is the greatest matter.

Eighth: To be in seclusion reciting the Qur’an, during that time in which Allaah descends to the lowest heaven (which is the last third of every night), finishing this recitation with seeking Allah’s forgiveness and repenting to Him.

Ninth: To sit in the gatherings of the true and sincere lovers of Allaah, reaping the fruits of their speech, and not to speak except if there is benefit in it and that you know that such talk will increase you in goodness and that it will benefit others as well.

Tenth: To stay clear of all those causes which distances the heart from Allaah the Mighty and Majestic.

After boarding the train, he asked his attendant “Where is my Quraan Majeed? Is it aboard the train?” The attendant replied, “All the luggage has not yet been loaded into the carriage, and the box in which we packed the Quraan Majeed still needs to be loaded. I will bring it immediately.” When he heard this, Fadhlul Haq immediately said, “I have told you, on multiple occasions, to ensure that the Quraan Majeed comes into the carriage first. Unload whatever luggage has already been loaded, we will take the next train and ensure that the Quraan Majeed goes into the carriage first.” Saying this, Fadhlul Haq exited the carriage and…
