Allah’s Unimaginable Love Towards His Servants

Allah Taala is our Creator and Sustainer and loves each one of us more than anybody we could think of. No matter how much or how frequently a person displeases Him in his life, His Arms are always extended to the one who wants to repent and get close to Him.

My mentor Hazrat Maulna Hakim Akhtar sb damatbarkatuham used to explain this with a delicate example. On the day of judgment defiant people will be punished and they will not be able to see the glimpse of their Lord. And the believers will be given the great opportunity to stare at their Love.

کلا انھم عن ربھم یو مئذ لمحجو بون

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَى

You can only expect this kind of punishment from a person who loves you the most. Mother, for example, punishes her disobedient son and ask him not to see her face until he refuses to stop disobedience.

The point is that Allah taala has unimaginable love towards us and Allah Ta’ala wants everyone of us to return back where He is waiting for us with open Arms.

پردے اٹھے ہوے بھی ہیں، ان کی ادھر نظر بھی ہے

بڑھ کر مقدر آزما، سر بھی ہے سنگ در بھی ہے
