Seldom do people ask of Allah by means of du’a, and when they do, they ask for things of this dunya (World). Then others ask for things of the Aakhirah (Hereafter). The true and real ardent lovers of Allah only desire Allah and His pleasure. The dunya has no value in their eyes nor does Jannah. What value would Jannat have without Allah! It is for this reason that the Ahlullah ask Allah for Himself.
کوئی تجھ سے کچھ کوئی کچھ چاہتا ہے
الھی میں تجھ سے طلبگار تیرا
Koi tujh se kuch koi kuch chahta hai, Ilahi mein tujhse talabgaar tera.
Some ask You for something and others, for something else. My Lord, I only seek from You Yourself.
Shaykh Hakeem Akhtar (Raheemahullah)
