10 Ways of developing love for اللَّهُ   Shaykh Ibn al-Qayyim (rah) says:“The reason which cause mahabbah (love) of اللَّه سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى to develop, are ten:
> First: Reciting the Qur’aan, reflecting and understanding its meaning and its intent.
> Second: Drawing closer to اللَّهُ – the Most High – through optional deeds, after fulfilling the obligatory duties.
> Third: Being continuous in the dhikr (remembrance) of اللَّهُ , with the tongue, the heart and the limbs – under all circumstances. The more continent the dhikr, the more muhabbah develops and intensifies.
> Fourth: Giving precedence to what اللَّهُ loves over personal loves, when being overcome by desires.
> Fifth: Contemplating and deliberating over the Names and Attributes ofاللَّهُ .
> Sixth: Recognizing and remembering the favours and bounties of اللَّهُ – both manifest and hidden.
> Seventh: To be humble and submissive before اللَّهُ – and this is the greatest matter.
> Eighth: To be in seclusion reciting the Qur’aan, during that time in which اللَّهُ descends to the lowest heaven(which is the last third of every night), finishing this recitation with seeking اللَّهُ forgiveness and repenting to Him. 
> Ninth: To sit in the gatherings of the true and sincere lovers of اللَّهُ , reaping the fruits of their speech, & not to speak except if there is benefit in it & that you know that such talk will increase you in goodness & that it will benefit others as well”.
> Tenth: To stay clear of all those causes which distances the heart from اللَّهُ – the Mighty and Majestic.
