I love what He loves!

What Allah does not love for us, it is because it is not good for us. The creator knows best what will be beneficial for His creation. So when we let those things He hates enter our hearts, it is nothing but our downfall. We need to make du’a that Allah helps us love what He loves and hate what He hates, because our happiness and success is really in the pleasure of our Creator, He is All-Knowing, All-Wise, let us trust in Him.

If there is anything in our hearts that will bring the disappointment of our Beloved, then let us beg Him that it be removed, because it is us who will suffer.

The other significant factor in life is being able to perceive the right (حق ) as right and the wrong (باطل) as wrong. We need to first be able to distinguish the two and then stand firm with what is Haq (حق). May Allah give us the tawfiq (ability) to distinguish the two.

ربي إنزع من قلبي حب كل شيى لا تحب
My lord remove from my heart, all things you do not love.
