The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) has said: ” Allah has some angels who look for those who celebrate the Praises of Allah on the roads and paths. And when they find some people celebrating the Praises of Allah, they call each other saying ; ” come to the object of your pursuit”.
He (pbuh) added ; ” then the angels encircle them with their wings up to the sky of the world”. He (pbuh) added :” after those people celebrated the Praises of Allah and the angels go back, their Lord ask them (those angels) though He knows better than them: “what do my slaves say? The angels reply; “they say SubhanAllah Allahu Akbar and Alhamdolillah”.
Allah then says ” did they see Me?”. The angels reply ” No, by Allah they did not see You”. Allah says ” how would it have been if they saw Me?”. The angels reply ” if they saw You they would worship you more devoutly and celebrate Your Glory more deeply and declare Your Freedom from any resemblance to anything more often”.
Allah says to the angels ” what do they ask Me for?”. The angels reply they ask you for Paradise”. Allah says to the angels ” did they see it? The angels say ” No, by Allah O Lord! They did not see it”. Allah says ” how would it have been if they saw it? The angels say ” if they saw it, they would have greater covetousness ( a strong desire to possess something) for it and would seek it with greater zeal and would have greater desire for it”.
Allah says ” From what do they seek refuge?”. The angels reply ” they seek refuge from the Hell-fire”. Allah says ” did they see it?”. The angels say ” No, by Allah O Lord! They did not see it”. Allah says “how would it have been if they saw it?”. The angels say ” if they saw it they would flee from it with the extreme fleeing and would have extreme fear from it”.
Then Allah says ” I make you witness that I have forgiven them”. Allah’s Apostle added ” one of the angels would say `there was so and so amongst them, and he was not one of them, but he had just come for some need`. Allah would say ” these are those people whose companions will not be reduced to misery”. ( i.e. he will be included amongst those who were rewarded). (Muslim, Sahih) SubhanAllah ❤ ❤
