    Nabi Isa ibn Maryam alaihis salam used to said "Do not speak much without the mention of Allah for you will harden your hearts. A hard heart is far from Allah, but you do not know. Do not look at the wrong actions of people as if you were lords. Look at your wrong actions as if you were slaves. Some people are afflicted by wrong action and some people are protected from it. Be merciful to the people of affliction and praise Allah for His protection." (Muwatta of Imam Malik)

          Those before you used to give
          to their worldly affairs what
          was left over from their pursuit
          of the hereafter. But today you
          give to the matters of the hereafter,
          the leftovers from your pursuit of
          worldly affairs. 'Awn ibn 'Abdillah.
          Quoted by Abi Nu'aym in
          Hilyat al `Awliya.

            Imam Ahmad was asked, “When is there rest?”
            He answered, “When you put your foot in Paradise, you will find rest.”

                `Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “Allāh has concealed two within two: He has concealed His pleasure in righteous acts, so one does not know which righteous act of his pleases Allah; and He has concealed His awliyā’ amongst His servants, so one does not know which servant of Allāh is His walī.”

                  How is possible for one's heart to be certain that one is going to meet Allah swt, that Allah swt sees and hears all that he does, and knows his secrets, and that he will be be made to stand before Allah swt, answerable for all his deeds - how can one be certain and aware of all this, and yet persists upon things which displease Allah: persists abandoning Allah's orders, neglecting His rights, and yet claims he has good expectation of Allah?
