“And your Lord says, ‘Call on Me and I shall respond to you’” (Ghâfir, 40: 60)

O Allah,I supplicate You to grant me Your LoveAnd the Love of those who love YouAnd the action that would lead me to win Your LoveAnd make my love for You more dear to meThan myself, my family, and cold refreshing water

Hadith – the noble Prophet Muhammad(Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him)
