Dragged to Paradise in Chains [Hikam 195]
How We Lose Our Faith
“He knew of the irresolution of servants in dealing with Him, so He made obedience to Him obligatory for them. Thus, He drove them to obedience with the chains of obligation. Your Lord is amazed at people who are driven to Paradise with chains!”
The discussion of the above wisdom beautifully highlights why we worship Allah Almighty and the hidden beauty behind obligations.
