Once one of the companions came to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and this narrated by Al Hasani in Tafsir Al - Tabari. He says at the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) someone came to Him and said: Wallahi oh Messenger of Allah, we Love Allah so much, Wallahi we Love our Rabb. Ok! We love Allah, who doesn't love Allah?
We all love Allah, he made us! How can we not love him? So Verses revealed (Surah Al Imran - Verse Nu 31) ''Say if you claim to love Allah, if you really love Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'la) than follow me, Allah will love you (Quran - 3:31).
Follow me, which mean follow the Messenger of Allah. If you follow the instructions of Allah it shows you love Him. What is the point of saying I love you and then you do things against the same person or the same supreme being. I love Allah but where is Salatul Fajr. I love Allah, where is my dress code? I Love Allah but I cannont give up adultery and gambling and pornography, but I love Allah.
You know the excuse they use today? Don't judge my heart, Allah knows my heart. Yes Allah knows your heart but your actions are proving how distant you are from Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'la). You yourself are making it difficult for people. May Allah (Subhan Wa Ta'la) help us all. May Allah help us improve.
It requires dedication, you say you love Allah, you need to change your life in accordance to that which pleases Allah and to know that you have to go to the instruction of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) because he was the Messenger who came to you. May Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'la) bless us all and may He strengthen us (Ameen)
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'la) tells us if you love Allah, follow Me, follow Muhammad (peace be upon him) and Allah will love you and he will forgive your sins.
May Allah (Subhan Wa Ta'la) grant us ease.
