Illumination for the heart


Shaykh Saalih al-‘Usaymee mentioned that some of the Salaf would say:

The darkness of the night is illumination for the heart.

In other words, hidden acts of worship [done] at night, [such as] the night prayer, [engaging in] supplication, and reading the Qur.aan – [all] benefit the heart more than some of the visible [acts of] worship [done in the presence of] the people.
