Why Muslims Love Allah
Your heart is created to love the one who bestows favors on you and who treats you with goodness. So if someone showers you with favors, what will your heart feel towards him? Your heart will surely love him. But sadly most hearts do not recognize Who The True Bestower is. You can realize what your mother did for you but Who gave you this mother? Who put the love and mercy for you in her heart? Allah did! Only the heart that is alive and sound realizes The True Bestower of favors and realizes that Allah is The Only One Who deserves the utmost love.
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم:
” اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ حُبَّكَ وَحُبَّ مَنْ يُحِبُّكَ وَحُبَّ عَمَلٍ يُقَرِّبُنِي إِلَى حُبِّكَ”
Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, used to say:
“O Allah, I ask You for Your love, and the love of whoever loves You, and the love of deeds that will bring me closer to Your love”.
