Setting rivals to Allah….

“And set not up with Allah any other ilah (god) lest you should be thrown into Hell, blameworthy and rejected.” (17:39)


Indeed, people have taken their passions for their gods, they have taken their loved ones, their families, their work….and whatever their hearts wish, as the centre of interest and has therefore neglected their meeting with Allah.


This is the reason why many people nowadays are in trouble and face confusion. The heart is sick…sick of love for others. They have been misled by their passions and desires.



“Know you, that the life of this world is but play and amusement, pomp and mutual boasting and multiplying, [in rivalry] among yourselves, riches and children” s 57 v 20


So, the more we run after the world, the more distressed and hopeless we will be.So, do not set rivals with Allah. do not love people as you should love Allah.


“And be ye not like those who forgot Allah; and He made them forget their own souls! such are the rebellious transgressors!” s Al Hashr 59 v 19


Allah Almighty said: “Say: If your fathers, your sons, your brothers, your wives, your kindred; the wealth that you have gained, the commerce in which you fear a decline, and the dwellings in which you delight …are dearer to you than Allah and His Messenger, and striving hard and fighting in His Cause, then wait until Allah brings about His Decision (torment).” (9:24) 


May Allah help us to love Him the most, insha Allah and remain steadfast in His Deen.

    sister this is very true….love attains its true worth,sincerity,depth and profoundness when it is based on the approval of allah or else it turns in to eternal sorrow if based on criteria like wealth and status…love for the approval of allah has no sorrow while that based on other baseless wordly criteria have anxiety and insecurity…that is why allah grants the beauty and blessing of allah only for his truly devoted sincere slaves…while unbelievers only dream of getting such love and by god they never achieve that state
