NABI

May Allah grant us al-firdaus whose roof is the ‘Arsh of Allah.

Never think you are too far from attaining this level, wallahi, it is His Mercy and only through His Mercy that you will enter Paradise.

Work hard, and strive to gain His Love.

ومن يطع الله ورسوله فقد فاز فوزا عظيما

“And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly attained the highest achievement.”

[33:71]

“When Allah loves someone, He calls Jibra'eel عليه السلام saying, "O Jibra'eel, I love so and so, so you love him.” Then Jibra'eel عليه السلام will call to the angels of the heavens, “Allah loves so and so, so love him.” And the angels will love (that person). And then Allah will place acceptance on earth for that believer.“

[al-Bukhari]

Wouldn’t it have been enough for Allah to just love a person?

But subhanallah, look at how al-Wadood (Loving) and al-Kareem (Generous) He is that He tells the angels about His Love and that love then descends to the earth.

How then can our hearts not love Him?

We invest so much time in trying to gain the love of people that we forget the only everlasting love is Allah’s.

No matter how far you have gone, no matter what you have done, turn back to Him. He will accept you. He will raise you and love you even more because He loves those who repent and purify themselves for His sake.

His doors of Love and Mercy will never ever close. Not even for a disbeliever. They will always be open. You just need to call on Him once, just need to take a step towards Him, and He will come to you at speed.
