❝I worshiped Allah for 50 years and did not find the sweetness of worship until I left off three things:
1 – seeking the pleasure of people so I was able to speak the truth.
2 – befriending immoral people so I was able to befriend the righteous.
3 – delights of this worldly life so I was able to find the delights of the next life.❞
— Ahmad b. Harb (d. 234h) Siyar ‘Alam an-Nubala
