Does this mean that Allah loves us?

HOW DO WE DETERMINE IF ALLAH LOVES US OR NOT ?

  1. If He gives us wealth?
  2. If He grants us health?
  3. If He gives us power?
  4. If He gives us children?
  5. …………?

Does this mean that Allah loves us? NO

A scholar once said:”I was wondering if Allah loves me
So I checked the Qur’an to see what are the characteristics of the people that Allah has mentioned whom He Loves

I discovered that Allah loves the “Al- Muttaqeen” (the Pious) so I said ” I wouldn’t dare consider myself one of them.”

Again I continued searching….

Then I found that Allah loves As- Sabireen (the patient).
So I remembered: “How impatient I am.”
So I continued searching….

Then I found that Allah loves Al- Mujahideen (those who strive in His path),
so I remembered how lazy and powerless I am.

I continued searching….

Then I found Allah loves Al- Muhsineen (those who do good deeds).
So I remembered how far I am from that.

Then I said: “So I stopped searching to avoid more disappointment. I reflected on my good deeds, and I found most of them are mixed with laziness, coldness, flaws and sins.

Then it came to my mind that Allah also loves the At-Tawwabeen (those who repent). I just figured out it is the one for me and for others like me.

So I said “I started saying …” “Astaghfirullah waa Atooubu Ilaih” in abundance and started mending my ways so I could be one of the ones whom Allah loves.”

May we be able to at least seek forgiveness often enough to be counted among those whom Allah Loves, Aameen!!
