How to attain the love of Allah ﷻ

Allah ﷻ says:

قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Say (O Muhammad): “If you (really) love Allah then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [3:31]

Abū Hūrayrah narrated that the Prophet ﷺ said:

“If Allah loves a person, He calls Jibril saying, ’Allah loves so and so;

O Jibril love him.’ And make an announcement amongst the inhabitants of the heaven: “Allah loves so and so therefore you should love him also, and so all the inhabitants of the heaven would love him, and then he is granted the pleasures of the people on the earth.”

[Bukhāri & Muslim]

The following are some of the ways to attain the love of Allah;

• Remembering Allah ﷻ:

The Prophet ﷺ said:

Whoever says ‘Subhan Allahi wa bihamdi hi’, one hundred times a day, will be forgiven all his sins even if they were as much as the foam of the sea.”

[Bukhāri & Muslim]

• Reciting the Qur’ān:

The Prophet ﷺ said:

Read the Qur’ān (regularly) for it will act as an intercessor for its readers on the Day of Resurrection.

[Muslim]

The Prophet ﷺ said:

A person who calls for blessings on me once, Allah sends down mercy on him ten times.

[Muslim]

May Allah make us of those who attain the love of Allah ﷻ
آمين يارب العالمين
