Hadith No. 15 – Sahih al-Bukhari
Delight: a high degree of pleasure or enjoyment.
It’s not easy to achieve. It’s not impossible either.
The Prophet (SAW) said, “Whoever possesses the following three qualities will have the sweetness (delight) of faith:
1. The one to whom Allah and His Apostle becomes dearer than anything else.
2. Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allah’s sake.
3. Who hates to revert to Atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the fire.”
Loving people for Allah’s sake. A lot comes under this topic, but this is the crux of the matter: this kind of love increases your love for Allah.
I only want to quote Zain Bhikha at this point..
This life is a trial, can never the let the test effect your smile
Reach for your brother, go the extra mile
Kiss for ya mother, hug your sister, let your wife know that you miss her
Know that you can never give up
When you fall to the floor, I’m the reason you must get up
I’m a blessing from God, so why you don’t use me more is so odd
You need love! We need love!
