BismillahirRahmanirrahim
We sacrifice the free will that Allah has given to you and you say, ‘Sameena wa ata’ana, we hear and we obey,’ from You, not from us, not what we think is good or bad, right or wrong, using our own free will. No, we give the free will back to you. Our will is now Your will Ya Rabbi. Submission. And submission, you can never get it, if you don’t have love. If you don’t have submission, you don’t have love. Because the lover submits. He never stands up to show himself. He says, ‘it’s You. It’s not me.’
