Today I’m going to be sharing with you seven tips to get closer to Allah:
1- Make Dua to Allah
When you take one step towards Allah, He will take ten steps towards you. So ask Allah to help you get closer to Him and to accept all of your actions.
2- Do More Secret Good Deeds
Hide rather than publicize your good deeds. Without the watchful eyes of other people, it will be easier to purify your intentions and to do things for the sake of Allah.
3- Remember Death
Death is the only thing guaranteed in life. So remember where you’re heading. Imagine lying in your grave, imagine the angels questioning you, and imagine standing in front of Allah on the Day of Judgment.
4- Find out Allah’s Names and Attributes
The more you know about Allah, the more your heart will become attached to Him. Also, learn about the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions, as this will increase your love for them and ultimately your love for Allah.
5 Find Good Friends
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
A man will follow the religion of his close friend. So let each of you look to whom he takes as a close friend.
It is critical to surround yourself with friends who will help you get closer to Allah.
6- Connect with the Quran Daily
The Quran contains a lot of words to us which is medicine for our soul. Set aside time daily to read the Arabic and translation, even if it’s a small amount and reflect on the meaning.
7- Understand What You Recite in Salah
The prayer allows you to speak to Allah. But it will only deeply affect your heart when you understand what you’re saying. Learn the meaning of the words and think about the meaning as you pray.
May Allah give me and you the success to implement these tips.
