Ever Considered This Hadith?

1 post in this topic

As-Salaam alaikum,

In a Hadith Qudsi, Allah Ta'ala says:--

   "I am as My Servant thinks I am, I am with him whenever he remembers Me;

   If he thinks of Me, I think of him; if he mentions Me in a gathering, I mention him

  in a gathering even better than it.

  If he draws near Me to a hand's span, I draw near to him in an arm's length;

 If he he draws to Me an arm's length, I draw closer to him by 2 arms length;

 and if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running."  (Bukhari and Muslim)


This Noble Hadith tells us the speed at which Allah Ta'ala changes a person's reality as He remembers him. Because Allah has no need of travel, He does not have a body and isn't in creation, when He says: ''I go to him running'', this refers to shaping man's perception of Allah, meaning ' I shape his reality quickly'... the more a person comes to Allah by remembering Him, the faster Allah changes his perception towards good.

Did you not hear the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:- IHSAN  (human perfection) is to worship Allah as if you see Him, which is the highest form of worship. And in the Qu'ran, we have read it:-

        "He is with you, wherever you are" (57:4)  and "And We are nearer to him than his jagular vein" (50:16)

   Thus we find His nearness in us already, Jallah-Jalalahu.
