Allah says: “O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask of Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it.” [Tirmidhi]
“Nothing endears My servant to Me than doing of what I have made obligatory upon him to do. And My servant continues to draw nearer to Me with the supererogatory (nawafil) so that I shall love him. When I love him, I shall be his hearing with which he shall hear, his sight with which he shall see, his hands with which he shall hold, and his feet with which he shall walk. And if he asks (something) of Me, I shall surely give it to him, and if he takes refuge in Me, I shall certainly grant him it.” (Bukhari)
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) says in a hadith Allah commanded all the evil and the good deeds to be recorde., and he continues:
If a person intends to do a good deed but cannot do it, Allah writes for him a reward of one good deed. If he both intends to do and performs that good deed, Allah writes for him a reward of ten good deeds and increases it up to seven hundred and more. And if the person intends to commit an evil deed but then changes his mind, Allah writes for him a reward of one good deed. If he both intends and commits that evil deed, Allah writes for him a punishment of one evil deed. [Bukhari, Riqaq: 31]
Prophet (pbuh) said: “Souls are like crowds which gather together. The ones who met before get along well. The ones who did not meet before, cannot get along very well and separate.” (Bukhari, Anbiya, 2; Muslim, Birr, 159; Abu Dawud, Adab, 19). Ever get that moment where when you meet someone for the first time, and you suddenly just click? As if you knew or met each other before? This hadith clearly states that before we were born, our souls were already created. And we were able to talk and get along in a place, long before we were born. From Allah we come, and to Allah we shall return.
The Prophet ﷺ said: “Be satisfied with what Allah has apportioned for you and you will be the richest of people.” (Narrated by Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhi)
“Truly in the heart there is a void that can not be removed except with the company of Allah. And in it there is a sadness that can not be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that can not be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him. And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness.” (Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah)
