Personal relationship with God in Islam

In the Name of Allah Most Gracious Most Beneficent
Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala is with the true believers. Allah Loves those who do good. This article refute those who attack Islam and Muslims out of ignorance and wickedness!
End of the article you can understand that the Skeptics and bigots ignorance about Islam and ignorance about truth is in Vain. Because this article prove they don’t know the truth about Islam and the truth itself!
  

GOD IS IN US:

Qur’an 50:16 And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein

GOD IS WITH US:

Qur’an 9:40…”Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us.” And Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him…”
He is with you wherever you are. And Allah , of what you do, is Seeing (Quran 57:4)

GOD TAKES AWAY BURDENS OF OLD COVENANTS:

Qur’an 2:286 Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity.
 
Qur’an 7:157 Those who follow the Messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write (i.e.Muhammad SAW) whom they find written with them in the Taurat (Torah) (Deut, xviii, 15) and the Injeel (Gospel) (John xiv, 16), – he commands them for Al-Ma’ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained); and forbids them from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of all kinds, and all that Islam has forbidden); he allows them as lawful At-Taiyibat [(i.e. all good and lawful) as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.], and prohibits them as unlawful Al- Khaba’ith (i.e. all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.), he releases them from their heavy burdens (of Allah’s Covenant), and from the fetters (bindings) that were upon them. So those who believe in him (Muhammad SAW), honour him, help him, and follow the light (the Qur’an) which has been sent down with him, it is they who will be successful.

GOD’S LOVE IN ISLAM:

For Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). (Quran 3:159).

Critics of Islam says, there is no Love preached in Islam. Skeptics and bigots who attack Islam claim that, in Islam God does not say He love His worshipers.
This verse in Quran is a clear refutation of such hate speech bigots and Anti-Islam apologetics.
In Islamic spirituality one who truly shun evil and deny himself and submit to the Will of God, such one’s relationship with God Almighty comes with Power and Glory of God that will manifest in such servants.

Hadith Sahih Bukhari :
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Verily Allah ta’ala has said: ‘Whosoever shows enmity to a wali (friend) of Mine, then I have declared war against him. And My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved to Me than the religious duties I have obligated upon him. And My servant continues to draw near to me with nafil (supererogatory) deeds until I Love him. When I Love him, I am his hearing with which he hears, and his sight with which he sees, and his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him; and were he to seek refuge with Me, I would surely grant him refuge.’ [Al-Bukhari], also in Imam Nawawi’s 40 Hadith /Number 38

This are clear evidence that awliya Allah (true lovers and friends of Allah) are known for their power wisdom,fear and understanding of God’s law and knowledge (gnosis).

A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS POSSIBLE IN ISLAM?:

This Articles proves:
1- Muslims can seek a personal relationship with their Lord-Allah Almighty.
2- Women can attain higher spiritual status in Islam.
3- Islam is not only about following rules but also attaining goals through following the Commandments of the Creator.
4- Woman have equal rights in the Spirituality, while other religions ignore/ban woman’s right to spiritual progress.
5- Islam is a complete way for all nations both males and females.
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

Yes, Islam speaks about having a personal relationship with Allah Almighty. Some groups who are innovators and ignorant call it Sufi misguidance and preachers of other faith condemn Islam and says Islam does not offer a personal relationship with God.
But Quran refute both misguided groups.Quran 66:11 وَضَرَبَ اللَّـهُ مَثَلًا لِّلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا امْرَأَتَ فِرْعَوْنَ إِذْ قَالَتْ رَبِّ ابْنِ لِي عِندَكَ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَنَجِّنِي مِن فِرْعَوْنَ وَعَمَلِهِ وَنَجِّنِي مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿١١

Quran 66:11 And Allah presents an example of those who believed: the wife of Pharaoh, when she said, “My Lord, build for me near You a house in Paradise and save me from Pharaoh and his deeds and save me from the wrongdoing people.”

For this reason (Dua), Allah Almighty answered the wife of Pharaoh and she will be the mother of believers in the heavens and she will be among People of the House (Ahlul Bayth) of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).

THE ONLY GOD

Quran 2:255 Allah – there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
 
Peace be upon all the Prophets of Allah
Praise be to Allah Lord of the Worlds
