Allah's mercy and love for His creation

{ Wednesday, March 23, 2011 }
I just came across this hadith qudsi, and mashaAllah, what a beautiful one!

The Prophet SallaAllahu ‘Aleyhi wa Sallam said
that Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala said:

Myself, humanity and the jinn, 
are in a great serious state. 
I created them, then they worship other gods that they themselves create. 

I bless them with my gifts, then they thank someone else for what I've sent them. 
My grace falls down on them while their evil deeds ascend to Me. 
I express my love for them with my gifts, even though I not need them. 
While they themselves avoid to Me with their sins and they desperately need my help. 

Anyone who turns to Me, I accept him irrespective of how far it is, 
and anyone who turns away from Me, I approach him and ask him. 
Any person who fails a sin for Me, I reward him with many presents 
and anyone who tries to please Me, I try to satisfy them. 
Anyone who acknowledges My Will and Power in everything he does, I let him bend the iron. 

My dear people are those who are with Me. 
Anyone who owes Me, I give him more blessings. 
Anyone who disobeys Me, I lift him, and caress him more. 
Anyone who disobeys Me, 
I keep the doors of My Mercy open for him; 
if he turns to me, I give him my love, because I love those who repent and cleanse themselves before Me. 
If he does not repent, I treated him still by placing him in a difficulty to clean him (his sins). 

Anyone who gives me the preference over others, 
I give him preference over others. 
I reward every good deed of ten or seven hundred times to countless times. 
I count every evil deed as one unless the person repents and asks my pardon, in which case I forgive even that one. 

I take every little good deed into consideration 
and I forgive even major sins. 
My Mercy surpasses My Wrath. 
My tolerance exceeds my reprimand. 
My Pardon surpasses my punishment, 
More gracious as I am with My Servants 
than a mother to her child.

Ibn Al-Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah
From Madaarijus-Saalikeen
