In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Praise be to Allah, The Lord (The One and Only) of the Worlds, and blessings and peace be upon our Master Muhammad, the Faithful and the Honest.
Dear noble brothers, pay attention to the following delicate fact: If man draws close to Allah by one step, Allah will become closer to him by many steps. In other words, by just thinking of getting close to Allah, He will fill your heart with happiness, tranquility, and satisfaction. In addition, you will get the quick response from Him since Allah the Almighty awaits this moment as narrated in the following tradition:
(Had the heedless known how much I long to them and yearn for them to leave their sins, their limbs would have been turned into pieces out of their love for Me. That is my Will towards the heedless, so how would I be with those who draw near to Me?")
When you draw close to Allah, you do not know that Allah the Almighty will be happy.
(Allah the Almighty is happier with the repentance of His worshipper than the sterile woman after giving birth to a baby; the lost man after finding his way; and the thirsty man after finding water.)
