Read this in a post and reminded myself that Allah is most Merciful and inshaAllah He will give us the best of both worlds. 🙂 And reminding you all as well!
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in a Hadith al-Qudsi tells us the words of Allah as He talks to His slaves:
“I am as My slave thinks of Me.”
So if a slave thinks the Almighty is merciful, he will find His mercy, and if he is disappointed and imagines Him angry, he will find Allah in anger. Further, the Hadith says:
“I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself; and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me a hand’s span, I draw near to Him an arm’s length; And if he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I draw near to Him a fathom’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed.”
This is how Allah addresses the slaves who spend time making mention of Him.
