    Hannad ibn al-Sari reported: Ibn Mas’ud, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “Sin is what disturbs the heart. There is never a glimpse of it but that Satan has ambition for it.”

    In another narration, Ibn Mas’ud said, “Beware of what unsettles the heart. If something unsettles your heart, abandon it.”

    ‎"O you who sold yourself for the sake of something that will cause you suffering and pain, and which will also lose its beauty, you sold the most precious item for the cheapest price, as if you neither knew the value of the goods nor the meanness of the price. Wait until you come on the Day of mutual loss and gain and you will discover the injustice of this contract." -Ibn al Qayyim al Jawziyyah

    I am not worried about whether my du'a will be responded to, but rather I am worried about whether I will be able to make du'a or not. So if I have been guided by ALLAH to make du'a, then (I know) that the response will come with it."

    [Umar Ibn Al-Khattab, radiyaAllaahu 'anhu]

    Shaykh ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on him, said:

    The punishment for a sin committed by a believer is removed in ten ways:

    1. He repents to Allah (taubah), so Allah accepts his repentance, for the one who repents from sin is like the one who has no sin.

    2. He seeks forgiveness from Allah (istighfar), so Allah forgives him.

    3. He does good deeds that erase his sin for good deeds erase bad ones.

    4. His believing brethren pray for him or seek forgiveness for his sins during his life or death.

    5. Or they [ask Allah] to bestow on him as gift from the reward for their deeds, with which Allah benefits him.

    6. His Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, intercedes for him.

    7. Allah tests him with trials in this world which expiate his sin.

    8. Allah tests him in al-Barzakh (the intermediate life in the grave, between the death and the Day of Judgment) which expiates his sin.

    9. Allah tests him in the various stages of the Day of Judgment which expiates his sins.

    10. Or the Most Merciful of those who have mercy has mercy on him.

    Whoever, then, is missed by these ten cannot blame anyone but himself.

    Majmoo` al-Fatawa 1:45, 7:487

    "If a servant of Allah tries to reflect over the greatness and majesty of Allah, and diverts all of his attention towards Him, he will find no pleasure in the company of other people to the extent that his heart will find no peace with anyone except Allah."

    Once Umar (Radi Allahu Anhu) said to Al-Ahnaf bin Qais (Radi Allahu Anhu): “Oh Ahnaf, the more one laughs, the less dignity will he possess. Whoever jokes (excessively) is a person who will be taken lightly. Whoever does something frequently will known by that thing. Whoever speaks often, errs often; the more often one errs, the less modesty he will possess; Whomever has a low level of modesty will also have a low level of piety; and when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies.”

    The life of this world is the wine of Shaytan, and whoever is intoxicated by it only wakes up once he is amongst the hordes of the dead, lamenting among the losers."✦

    The servant who seeks the pleasure of Allaah, never

    abandons repentance.



    He remains in the state of repentance until the end of his life."

    "When Allah granted Prophet Yoosuf (`alayhis-Salaam) physical beauty it caused him to be locked up in the prison; but when Allah granted him knowledge (when he interpreted the dream of the king) it not only took him out of prison, but elevated his rank in society, clearly showing us the virtue of knowledge and that physical beauty does not mean anything."


    Ibn al Qayyim [Al-‘Ilm wa Fadhluhu wa Sharafuhu p. 32].
