Now, after all that we’ve spoken about I want you to sit for a minute and think about the love that you have for Allah. Do you think it’s at the level that it should be? Or do you feel as though there is a lot of work that needs to be done?
I do not want to “beat a dead horse into the ground”, but it is imperative that we keep several things in focus. The first of these is that this topic, as all of the sections of the Building Block Series are about personal growth, and not to be taken as a way of judging someone else’s Islam. Most times you will find that there is no real benefit in measuring someone else’s Islam or Emaan. The real benefit is when we do these things to correct our own lives and our relationships with Allah.
The second thing, is that we look at the love that we have for those here in the Dunya, and the effects of this love on all aspects of our lives. Being as though our love for Allah should surpass our love for anyone or anything else, shouldn’t we be more willing to work even harder for Allah?
Now whats upon us to do is to take a close look at the love that we claim to have for Allah on our tongues, and that which we see from our actions or efforts. Then, we need to do our best to make sure that the latter matches the claim. May Allah correct all of our hearts and our situations… Allahuma Ameen.
