The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Allah divided Mercy into one-hundred parts and kept ninety-nine parts of it with Him and sent down one part on earth. And because of that, its one single part, His creations are Merciful to each other, so that even the mare lifts up its hoofs away from its baby animal, lest it should trample on it.’" [Sahih Bukhari]
He who appreciates Allah’s love for His creatures is lost deep in his love for Allah.
Hadrat Shibli (rahimuhullah) used to carry sweets in his pockets and upon hearing anyone call out the Name of Allah he would put some sweets in that person’s mouth. When asked why he would do this he answered, “If I hear the Name of Allah and don’t fill that mouth with sweet then what else should I do?”
