Don't Be Like Most People


We all know that everything that we do, our prayer, salah, staying away from alcohol, pork, and adultery aren't doing anything for Allah, that is for ourselves, it saves us from making a fool of ourselves. Nothing we do benefit Allah, he is Qiyamuhu Binafsihi, he is the Most-Great. Every single thing that He prohibits from us is for our own sake. It is out of Allah's love for us that He made it so that when you love Him and do something for Him you're in essence of loving yourself and benefitting from Him.

If you look for the words "most people" in the Qur'an, you will find that most people 
"do not know", 7:189,  "do not give thanks", 2:243, 
and "do not believe" 11:17. 

And if you look for "most of them", 
you will find that most of them are "defiantly disobedient", 5:59, 
"ignorant" 6:111,  "turning away" 21:24, "do not reason" 29:23, 
and "do not listen, 8:21.

Don't you want to be among the number of a few people? Dear brothers and sisters?:')
Narrated Anas:
The Prophet said:
“My Lord says, ‘If My slave comes nearer to me for a span, I go nearer to him for a cubit; and if he comes nearer to Me for a cubit, I go nearer to him for the span of outstretched arms; and if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running."
***
On the authority of Abu Harayrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: Allah the Almighty said:
"I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me.
If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and
if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an
assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I draw
near to him a fathom’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at
speed."

It was related by al-Buhkari (also by Muslim, at-Tirmidhi and Ibn-Majah).

He loves us so much, don't you realize that?
May all of us are blessed in the upcoming Ramadhan. :)
