Walk Towards Your Lord

Alhamdulillah! No one ever said that being single would be easy. But if there is anything I have learned is that Allah (sub hanahu’wa ta’ala) is always by His servant’s side. I LOVE words of inspiration, encouragement and motivation. So who better else to give words of empowerment other than Allah, the one who created us all, Himself! Happy reading folks! In English and in Arabic!

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Allah says: ‘I am just as My slave thinks of Me when he remembers Me.’ By Allah! Allah is more pleased with the repentance of His slave than one of you who unexpectedly finds in the desert his lost camel. ‘He who comes closer to Me one span, I come closer to him a cubit; and he who comes closer to Me a cubit, I come closer to him a fathom; and if he comes to Me walking, I come to him running”.

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه ، عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال‏:‏ “ قال الله، عز وجل‏:‏ أنا عند ظن عبدي بي وأنا معه حيث يذكرني، والله لله أفرح بتوبة عبده من أحدكم يجد ضالته بالفلاة، ومن تقرب إلي شبراً، تقربت إليه ذراعاً، ومن تقرب إلي ذراعاً، تقربت إليه باعاً، وإذا أقبل إلي يمشي، أقبلت إليه أهرول‏”‏ ‏(‏‏(‏متفق عليه‏)‏‏)‏ ‏.‏ وهذا لفظ إحدى روايات مسلم‏.‏ وتقدم شرحه في الباب قبله‏.‏
وروي في الصحيحين ‏:‏ ‏”‏وأنا معه حين يذكرني‏”‏ بالنون، وفي هذه الرواية ‏”‏حيث” بالثاء وكلاهما صحيح‏.‏
