Thank you to Kube Publishing for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely loved this book. It was such a spiritually uplifting book which I read during Ramadan.
In Allah Loves Omar Suleiman explores who and what Allah loves so that we may become one of those who are beloved to Him. The Prophet Muhammad said that one of the supplications of Prophet Dawud was, “O Allah I ask You for Your love and the love of those that love You and all of those actions that would bring me closer to being loved by you.” Looking at our actions, characteristics and beliefs, this book will help us become better people, citizens and believers that are deserving of Allah’s endless, infinite and ever-lasting love. Made up of 30 short and spiritually enriching chapters, this book is a reminder that throughout our lives, the Creator’s love is always there, increasing through everyday actions such as showing generosity or remaining consistent with unnoticeable good deeds.
This book was adapted from his Ramadan series and honestly I am so happy to have it in a book form. I love watching his online classes and talks and having it in a book is so great to be able to refer back to. If you enjoy his classes then I highly recommend picking up his books.
This is the type of book you can come back to again and again and continue to benefit from it. It’s a short book but full of important lessons and reminders that Allah’s love is infinite and that small everyday deeds can bring us close to him. We often think we need to be perfect but that isn’t the case.
Each chapter begins with a specific quality that Allah loves; piety, justice, patience, gentleness and so much more. Then we learn about why Allah loves this quality with Quran and hadith. I loved how each quality was spoken about and we learnt that it isn’t big grand gestures but the small everyday acts that Allah loves most. To incorporate these qualities in our lives and be consistent in them.
This is such a heartfelt book and I loved reading through it. It is written in such a easy to read way and understand. I know I will come back to this book time and time again. It is full of beautiful gems and words of wisdom. It will help us to re-evaluate our lives and work to improve ourselves and build good habits.
I highly recommend this book for everyone to read and I also recommend reading his first book, Prayers of the Pious.
