Spiritual Practices – in search of Divine Love
"Allah has ordered praying, fasting, pilgrimage and charity"
is the Arabic for remembrance, or remembering.
- so dhikrullah is Remembering God
Ya Wadud, O Love Divine
…. There are over one-thousand Qur’anic verses alone, not to mention Prophetic traditions, in which our Lord Almighty orders us to ‘Remember Him’, ‘Glorify Him,’ ‘Praise Him,’ and ’Call upon Him’. He has ordered this that we may approach His Divine Presence, as every repetition of our Lord’s Name increases the love of Him in our hearts.
It is for those who have access to a realm of knowledge beyond science to say with certainty that it is Allah Almighty, the Lord of the universes who though His Holy Name Al Wadud (the All–loving) gives His Divine Love to everything in the universe. Therefore when we say “Ya Wadood” we are opening ourselves up to that Divine Love, asking our Lord to awaken that love that knows no limitation, that is eternal and extends to all creation.
