To Follow the ONE true Desire…

A true believer of Allah is the one who keeps working hard for the sake of Allah even in the face of difficulties because of his faith and trust in Allah and the hereafter.

He does not create difficulties for himself by following his temptations…

Rather he tries to work though the difficulties which have to come anyway… and he keeps doing his best even if he cannot resolve them…

Why? What is the secret of his motivation and what keeps him on the path of patience and perseverance?

It is nothing else except his love for Allah and his desire to be among the beloved people of Allah… and of course his deep conviction in the promises of Allah and his messenger (s.a.w.)

That is why he does not get distracted by desires because he has only one desire so strong and so overwhelming that it has given him the strength against all things which might take him away from it…

And why shouldn’t we also desire it too? Why can’t we also follow that one true love? Do we have any doubt about the pleasure it will give us? if we were convinced we would gladly bear any pain to gain that pleasure… the pleasure of paradise and of Allah being pleased with us…

Al-Mughirah bin Shu`bah RA said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Musa (alayhi wa sallam) asked his Rab: ‘Who amongst the inhabitants of Jannah will be the lowest in rank?’ He said: `It will be a person who will be admitted into Jannah last of all when all the dwellers of Jannah have entered Jannah. It will be said to him: Enter Jannah. But he will say: O my Rubb! How should I enter while the people have settled in their apartments and taken their shares? It will be said to him: Will you be satisfied and pleased if you have a kingdom like that of a monarch of the world? He will say: I will be content, my Rab. Allah will say: For you is that, and like that and like that and like that and like that. He will say at the fifth time: I am well-pleased, my Rab. Allah will say: It is for you and ten times more like it. You will have whatever your soul desires and whatever your eyes could delight in. He will say: I am well-pleased, my Rab.’ Musa (alayhi wa sallam) said: `Who will be of the highest rank in Jannah.’ Allah said: `They are those whom I chose and I established their honour with My Own Hand. I attest with My Seal that they will be blessed with such bounties as no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human mind has perceived.'” (Muslim)
