Shaykh Al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyah, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: “I reflected upon the most beneficial supplication, and it is asking for help in acquiring His Pleasure. Then I saw it within Al-Faatihah within the statement: “You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything).” [Soorah Al-Fatihah 1:5] Seeking help from Allaah in attaining His Pleasure is the loftiest request and the greatest objective and the noblest goal, the most praiseworthy aim, and the greatest matter upon which those who embark could embark and strive to attain. “Due to this, Pleasure is the greatest door of Allaah and the Paradise of the Dunyaa; it is the source of repose for the cognizant, the life of those who love (Allaah), the delight of the worshippers, and the coolness for the eyes of those who desire (the good).” Therefore, it is befitting for the Muslim to place this noble verse within his heart and to be diligent upon making it present within his mind in every situation and in every place and every circumstance. This is because, if this verse stands within the heart and that which it indicates is one’s objective and his aim and desire, then all of his conditions would be rectified and all of his affairs would be beautified. His statement, Glorified and Exalted be He: “The Good Pleasure from Allaah is greater.”This passage contains great subtleties that indicate the greatness of this Pleasure and the loftiness of its status. The scholars of Tafseer indicate them within their books, may Allaah have mercy upon them and bring benefit through their efforts
