An Outpouring of Love (Paperback)
"When the servant of Allah the Exalted realizes true submission to Him, the servant becomes the object of Divine attention, the goal of the Divine will...The servant becomes the focus of Lordly care and attentiveness and Allah declares "My servant has preferred me, so I have preferred him " ...O servant of Allah, Allah created all that is beautiful in anticipation of your arrival into His presence; He filled vessels of Divine love so that you would drink your fill." - excerpt from the chapter entitled "Submission."
"Allah desires you. He does not desire your despair, nor does He desire your occupation with good deeds. It is as if He is saying, "You are my goal, you are what I intend, and it is your love that I am calling for; I do not want you for punishment, nor do I want you for reward. I want you fully for Myself. Though everything exists is in servitude to Me, I love only you. All declare my praises and glorify Me, although they do not know Me. I have resrved the realization of My knowledge and My love for you alone. I am your Lord and the One who initiated your existence with and by love."- excerpt from the chapter entitled "A Great Love."
