As-Salaam alaikum,
Anas ibn Malik, may Allah be pleased with him, related that the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, as part of a lengthy discourse said :-
"No servant ever approaches the Almighty Allah in complete Sincerity except that Allahu, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala makes the hearts of the believers incline toward that person with love and caring, while Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, is the first to bring that person every manner of goodness. " (Related by Tirmidhi, also Al-Haythami recorded it in his Majma'az Zawa'id 10/247)
There are 2 essential factors for the heart to become attached to Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala:-- Constant Remembrance or Zikr and Constant Obedience. From this, we achieve internal affinity (nisbat-e-batini).
