GOING further into our profound state amid Dua (salah) requires that we have a nearness of heart and are aware of the words being said amid the supplications.
Our Dua will feel shorter, yet when we take a gander at how much time we really spent, we will think, “Did I simply burn through 10 minutes?” or even 15 and 20 minutes.
A man who started applying this said he wished the supplication could never end.
An inclination that Ibn Al-Qayyim portrays as “what the contenders go after… it is food for the spirit and the pleasure of the eyes,” and he additionally said, “In the event that this inclination leaves the heart, it is just as it is a body with no spirit.”
The affection for Allah
A few people’s association with Allah is restricted to taking after requests and leaving preclusions, so one doesn’t enter hellfire. Obviously, we should take after requests and leave forbiddances, however it should be done out of more than trepidation and trust; it ought to likewise be done out of affection for Allah. Allah says in the Qur’an: “… Allah will deliver [in spot of them] a people He will love and who will love Him.” (Qur’an, 5:54)
We frequently find that when a significant other meets the darling, hearts are blended and there is warmth in that meeting. However when we meet Allah, there is not even an ounce of this same feeling. Allah says in the Qur’an: “And (yet) among the general population are the individuals who take other than Allah as equivalents (to Him). They adore them as they (ought to) adoration Allah. In any case, the individuals who accept are more grounded in adoration for Allah.” (Qur’an, 2:165)
Furthermore, the individuals who accept are more grounded in affection for Allah. There ought to be a sentiment yearning, and when we raise our hands to begin the supplication, warmth and affection ought to fill our hearts since we are presently meeting with Allah. A dua of the Prophet (peace be upon him): “O Allah, I approach You for the yearning to meet You” (A Nisa’i, Al-Hakim)
Ibn Al-Qayyim says in his book Tareeq Al-Hijratain that Allah adores His Messengers and His trusting hirelings, and they cherish Him and nothing is more darling to them than Him. The adoration for one’s folks has a specific sort of sweetness, as does the affection for one’s kids, however the adoration for Allah far supersedes any of that. The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “Any individual who joins these three qualities will encounter the sweetness of confidence: 1) that God and His delivery person are dearer to him than whatever else; 2) that his affection for others is only for’s the love of all that is pure and holy; and 3) that he prefers not to backslide into doubt as much as he would rather not be tossed in the flame.” (Bukhari)
In this manner, the primary thing he specified was: “… that God and His dispatcher are more cherished to him than whatever else… ”
Ibn Al-Qayyim says: “Since ‘there is not at all like unto Him’ (Qur’an, 42:11), there is in no way like encountering adoration for Him.”
On the off chance that you feel this affection for Him, it will be an inclination so exceptional, so sweet, that you would wish the supplication could never at any point end.
Would you really like to feel this affection? At that point ask yourself: ‘why do you or would it be advisable for you to love Allah?’
Realize that you adore individuals for one (or all, in changing degrees) of three reasons: For their excellence, due to their lifted up character or/and on the grounds that they have done great to you. What’s more, realize that Allah joins these three to the most extreme degree.
We’ve all been touched by magnificence. It is nearly fitrah (normal manner) to love what is excellent. Ali ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be satisfied with him, said in regards to the Prophet, peace be upon him, that it was “as though the sun is sparkling from his face.” Jabir (may God be satisfied with him) said: “The Messenger of Allah was more good looking, delightful, and brilliant than the full moon” (Tirmidhi)
Allah made every one of His Prophets have a specific wonder with the goal that individuals would have a characteristic slant toward them.
What’s more, magnificence is more than what is in the face, since excellence is in all of creation and by one means or another can blow our mind and give us peace at the same time. The gleam of the bow moon on a quiet night, the power of a waterfall as the water drops for a large number of feet, the dusk by the ocean … certain scenes of characteristic untainted magnificence mixes something in us. As Allah is the One Who made it excellent, so what of Allah’s magnificence?
Ibn Al-Qayyim said: “And it is sufficient to understand Allah’s Beauty when we realize that each inward and outer excellence in this life and the following are made by Him, so what of the magnificence of their Creator?”
This fitrah for adoring what is wonderful is on the grounds that Allah is excellent. One of His Names is Al-Jameel (the Most Beautiful). Ibn Al-Qayyim states that the magnificence of Allah is something that a man can’t envision and just He knows it. There is nothing of it in creation put something aside for impressions.
Ibn Al-Qayyim says on the off chance that all of creation were the most excellent they could be (so how about we envision, ever single individual looked as wonderful as Yusuf, peace be upon him, and the entire world resembled Paradise), and every one of them joined from the earliest starting point of time until the Day of Judgment, they would not resemble a beam in contrast with the sun when contrasted with Allah. Allah’s excellence is intense to the point that we won’t have the capacity to take it in this life. In the Qur’an, Allah depicts Musa’s (peace be upon him) demand: “And when Moses landed at Our selected time and his Lord addressed him, he said, ‘My Lord, show me (Yourself) that I may take a gander at You.’ (Allah) said: ‘You won’t see Me however take a gander at the mountain; in the event that it ought to stay set up, then you will see Me.’ But when his Lord appeared to the mountain He rendered it level, and Moses fell oblivious.” (Qur’an, 7:143)
Indeed, even the mountain couldn’t bear the magnificence of Allah and disintegrated, and when Musa, peace be upon him, saw this (he didn’t see Allah), he fell oblivious. This is the reason on the Day of Judgment it is Allah’s light that will sparkle on everything. We discuss amazing magnificence, yet we have yet to experience Allah’s excellence. While things in this world can be excellent or glorious or on the off chance that they consolidate both they are limited, genuine glory and magnificence are for Allah: “And there will remain the Face of your Lord, Owner of Majesty and Honor.” (Qur’an, 55:27)
Remembering every one of this, the Prophet, peace be upon him, said: “Allah coordinates His Face toward the substance of His hireling who is asking, the length of he doesn’t dismiss” (Tirmidhi).
Recollect that this in your Dua, and request that Allah permit you the delight of seeing Him in Paradise.
