What is your relation with your creator? How will you define it if asked? Have you ever talked to him alone like whispering in a friend’s ear? How many times a day do you mention his name in your daily talk?
Let’s see an example right from the Quran, this book also shares with us the relation of Prophets with their Lord and how they called on to him and shared their feelings as they had everlasting relation with Allah.
The example I choose is of Prophet Zakariyya (Zechariah (A.S)) from Surah Maryam [ayah:2-6]
[This is] a mention of the mercy of your Lord to His servant Zechariah (Zakariyya)
When he called to his Lord a private supplication.
He said, “My Lord, indeed my bones have weakened, and my head has filled with white, and never have I been in my supplication to You, my Lord, unhappy.
And indeed, I fear the successors after me, and my wife has been barren, so give me from Yourself an heir
Who will inherit me and inherit from the family of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, pleasing [to You].”
Beautiful conversation which Allah (swt) disclosed for all of us to take lessons. Prophet Zakariyya (A.S) explained to him his whole situation in such a beautiful manner and glorified him at the same time that he is never disappointed after praying. So how is our relation? Have you ever felt the same way as if you are talking directly to him and he is listening to all of it? Think of the way we talk with someone on the phone, we are so sure that he is listening at the other end and we keep on going but what about sharing with Allah.
Relation with Allah:
This relation is suppose to be the most strongest one as Allah (swt) in his book testified that the believers are very strong in their love for Allah. Moreover, the one you love most is often reflected in your talk and thoughts. So in the end I want to share some sentences that show how this love affects people talk.
1) Someone was praying hard and got overwhelmed with the situation and just uttered “Allah you know nah! What I am going through,so please bless me this…”
2) On seeing a wish fulfilled uttered in sheer joy JazakAllah, my dear Allah.everlasting relation
3) Another similar occasion someone shouted “OH ALLAH! I love you”.everlasting relation
SubhanAllah the love inside your heart will affect your deeds and words. This relation gets energy from Hadith in which we are told that the best gift to people of paradise will be that they will see with their own eyes “The Kings of King”. SubhanAllah, it brings such hope that the one I am talking to, the one I am dedicating my life to, I will be able to meet him one day (InshaAllah). So let’s start sharing and strengthening this beautiful, everlasting relation.
