How to Build Connection with Allah
In our life, there comes a point where we feel disconnected with Allah SWT. What can be the possible indication for this? The answer to this can vary.
When we feel unhappy with no reason, when we feel uncomfortable or when to feel down. It is clear cut indication that we have lost our connection with Allah SWT. I think “Lost” is the word that describe the best our weak connection with Allah SWT.
What does lost mean? Lost means forgetting a particular thing similarly lost connection with Allah SWT means that the connection is still there, but we have failed to maintain our relationship with Allah SWT. How can He, the most merciful break this regard?
There can be many steps for building this connecting with Allah SWT. I have listed very familiar yet critical steps for creating a strong connection with Allah SWT. There can be many more ways of doing so. But these are common yet very fundamental ways.
Pray five times a day
Praying five times a day is our obligation. Try to pray five times a day. If you cannot then, I would suggest! Start praying now and don’t wait for tomorrow.
Take baby steps
Plan a good deed each day, and try do it. Read half a page of Quran, daily. Don’t stop yourself from doing so. In sha Allah, at the end, you will see improvement
Just take a moment and think about the last time you have been grateful to all the blessings of Allah SWT. You cannot remember, right? Say Alhamdulilah as much as you can. Even when you think you are having the worst days of your life. You will still find something to be thankful for. So count your blessings.
Start saying Astaghfirullah as much as you can.
Make friends who constantly remind you of Allah SWT. Talk to them more often, you will see a drastic change in yourself.
Building a connection with Allah SWT is not that difficult. A little effort and a real intention are more than enough.
