Hazrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned:
If we develop the true love of Allah Ta‘ala then deen will become extremely easy to practise and we will be able to overcome all hurdles.
In the world, the system of Allah Ta‘ala is that there is a source for everything and one will have to respect that system. If you wish to acquire secular education then you will enrol in a school and go to university. A person wishes to become a doctor, he will go to medical college. Likewise, for acquiring piety you will have to sit in the company of the pious.
