Hazrat Thanvi RA has mentioned a prescription of ‘four actions‘ to gain the ‘Love of Allah Ta’ala‘ :
1. Compare the immense kindness and favours of Allah Ta’ala to our ingratitude and disobedience of Him.
2. Exert ourselves and strive to do those righteous deeds that Allah Ta’ala desires of us and leads us to Him, (Salaah, Zikr, Recitation of Qur’aan, etc).
3. Make specific time for engaging in the Zikr of Allah Ta’ala daily.
4. Keep the company of the pious friends of Allah Ta’ala, in whose companionship, the effects of Allah Ta’ala’s muhhabbat is generated into our hearts.
