He is Close to You

Posted in Uncategorized on February 20, 2009 by Usman

Salaam, I hope everyone is in the best of health and in the state of increasing iman. I have not posted anything in a while because I have been busy with what we come to learn as life. I came across something on our dear Shaykh Suhaib Webb’s website, he said, ” You might be far from Allah, but, he is close to you! Turn to him and you will find him. That is so amazing, Subhanallah. That resonated with me so much and I am sure that well can relate to it. So many times we feel distant from Allah and the Quran, but if we just turn around once in a while Inshallah we will benifit. I leave you with this hadith, “I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assemble better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I draw near to him a fathom’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed”.  The heart needs to beat… and so we stay alive. Wsalaam
