Every man, whether he admits it or not, is in need of a god, and it follows that god must possess certain qualities, such as omnipotence, power, richness, and everlastingness. The One Who has all of these , and all other perfect qualities , is ALLAH, the Lord of all that exists.
Therefore the sincere seeker is drawn to and then finds comfort in his belief in GOD. He is the sanctuary of the weak and of the ones who seek refuge.
Whoever worships other than GOD, even if he loves Him to a certain degree, is much worse off than the one who enjoys eating food that has been poisoned.
The need we have for GOD is shown by the connection sought by us between the transient and the Everlasting, the weak and the Almighty, the poor with the All-Rich.
And whoever does not take Allah to be his Lord and God will positively take other than Him as a god.
He will, for example, take pictures, objects of love, or his desires to be his deity, and then he becomes the slave and servant of that false deity, And of this there is no doubt.
Know that the need of the slave to worship ALLAH alone, without associating partners with Him, is more urgent than the need to breathe air.
A person’s reality resides in his heart and soul. And neither one’s heart nor soul is healthy except by worshipping Allah.
“Whoever craves for a meeting with GOD, loves Him, And GOD will be for him stronger in love, The opposite holds true for the one who hates. So ask GOD For His Mercy and Favor, but don’t depend on this alone, but perform good deeds also.
Even if one finds pleasure in other than GOD, it is a condition that will not last, for when one becomes bored with one object or person, he immediately seeks another. He will find blessings with this person at one time, and find annoyance and vexation with the same person at another time. Indeed, he might even come to hate a person whose company at one time had given him the utmost of pleasure.
As for GOD, one is in constant need of Him, on all occasions and at all times.
