Dear Maryam,

I wish to congratulate you and May Allah Almighty bless your marriage and for you to stay united till Paradise.

Just another tip.

To love is to sacrifice, to please the other party without asking anything in return.

But of course True Love is Loving Allah, trying to please Him with obeying all His commands with honesty and sincerity, without even asking for His Paradise.

Salam.

".....without even asking for His Paradise."
 
The Prophet of Allah (SAW) said of Firdous:

When you pray ask for Firdous, for it is in the middle of heaven and
is higher in grade than the heaven and above Firdous is Allah's
throne, moreover the canals of heaven flow from Firdous. (Bukhari)

The Dua' of Ahlussufi -

Illahi anta maksudi wa redhaka mathlubi
O Allah You are my goal and Your pleasure is my only desire!

So Ahlussufi trumps Sunnah/hadith of Prophet/Sahih Bukhari ? Confused

I do not find anything wrong with this dua'.

If you analyze further, the character of Redha and ikhlas meaning not asking anything in return is the main essence of this dua.

Assalamu alaikum,

It is not that we are not supposed to ask for paradise, we sure are supposed to do, and we should surely do.

The scene changes though when we are worshipping allah, that is while doing ibadath i mean, and not while making a dua....here....in the former case...we should do it, keeping in mind that we would do it even if there was no heaven or hell, for once we have recognized our creator we worship him unconditionally, and not bound by the condition that we do it only if we get the jannah in return.

While, making a prayer of course we must ask for jannah, and for his grace to save us from hell. doesn't Allah say in the quran,with regard to those asking him during pilgrimage, that for those who ask only of this world and not for His blessings in the hereafter, they shall be granted things only in this world and will be deprived of his grace in the hereafter, whereas those who ask of both the worlds shall receive blessings of both according to their deeds.(al baqra)

Forget me not when you pray for jannah,
