As soon as a person turns towards Allah taala and commits himself/herself to His wishes, Allah taala takes his/her hand and steers him/ her through the thick and thin of their lives. It is that Divine Pull which saves the person from all the evil attractions of the world.
The creator of the gravitational pull knows very well when His servants and lovers are in need of His help. And does not leave him/her alone. The feelings are overwhelming yet discrete.
My Shaikh Hazrat Maulana Hakim Muhammad Akhtar Sb RA used to stress that a person, trying to practice deen, faces opposition from three quarters; his own self (nafs), Satan, and the society. Together, they employ every possible means to drag a person off-track.
The pull force of this private connection with Allah swt is so strong that it gives the person strength to turn down the demands of Satan, our own nafs, and all evils of the society together. It is a connection similar to the one mentioned about Ashaab Kahf وربطنا على قلوبهم.
He is very near and ready to pull. Let’s grab the chance!
