‘Arifbillah Hazrat Dr Abdul Hayy ‘Arifi ra said;
The method for developing Allah swt’s Love is:
1. Reflecting on the bounties of Allah swt and being thankful for them
2. Associating with the people who already have this Love (ahl-e-muhabbet). Reading their books, biographies and poetry.
3. Meticulously following the Sunnah method in all aspects of your life
