Have good expectations of Allah

Jabir bin `Abdullah (رضي الله عنه) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) saying three days before his death: “Let none of you die unless he has good expectations from Allah”
[Muslim]

Abu Hurayrah (رضي الله عنه) reported: the Messenger of Allaah (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) said: “Allah says: ‘I am just as My slave thinks of Me when he remembers Me.’ By Allah! Allah is more pleased with the repentance of His slave than one of you who unexpectedly finds in the desert his lost camel. `He who comes closer to Me one span, I come closer to him a cubit; and he who comes closer to Me a cubit, I come closer to him a fathom; and if he comes to Me walking, I come to him running’ ”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Commentary by Imam al-Nawawi:

“This Hadith highlights the merits of expecting good treatment of Allah. But this has to be backed by good actions, in the same way as one can hope for good results after ploughing and sowing seeds.

It is obvious that one who accomplishes good deeds will expect good consequences, and one who does evil deeds will expect evil consequences.

Allah will treat people according to their expectation that are founded on their actions, and the reward will match their deeds.”
[Riyad-us-Saliheen, Chapter 52;440]

About `La illaha illa Allah

Pray your Salah and be good to others too, When you remember Allah, He remembers you. Do you know when you hear or recite the Qur'an, Allah is telling you that He is the One.
