Page 6 - Your relationship with Allah

Basic HTML Version

All praise is due to Allah alone; may He send salutations and exalt the mention of the seal of all
Prophets and Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu alaihe wasallam, his family and all his
We all want Allah’s love but what are the ways to attain that status?
It is from the mercy of Allah that He has legislated many deeds through which believers can come
closer to Allah, attain His love and earn great rewards. To improve our relationship with Allah we
must try to improve our relationship with the Divine Book, with our parents, our husbands, our
children and our relatives and strive to fulfill our duties toward them so that they in turn may serve as
righteous deeds for us and benefit us after we die.
In this publication, I have complied ahadith and verses from the Qur’an that speak about the
teachings of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu alaihe wasallam.
In order to attain Allah’s love we must improve our actions and understand the right others have
on us.
As stated by Ibn al-Qayyim: Actions are distinguished, one from the other, with respect to their
excellence in the Sight of Allah in accordance with the condition of the heart, not by the number or
form, but rather due to the strength of the caller, his or her truthfulness, his or her sincerity and
extent to which he or she prefers Allah over himself or herself.
Relationships are simple if we follow the guidance from Quran and Sunnah. Having a better
relationship with Allah helps us discover who we are and this helps us to improve our relationship
with others.
I present this e-book to my sisters in the hope that this action may be included in those referred to
in the hadith of the Prophet Sallallahu alaihe wasallam. Abu Huraira radiallahu anhu reported that the
Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alaihe wasallam said, “He who calls others to follow the Right Guidance
will have a reward equal to the reward of those who follow him, without their reward being
diminished in any respect on that account”.
