Rather, the believer indeed finds in himself and his heart [a feeling of] pleasure when he abandons [something which is] prohibited…
During hardship, the believer is commanded with patience and acceptance, and when [having committed] sins, to seek forgiveness and repentance.
We observed, and did not find anything better to delight the believer than the love of Allaah (’Azza wa Jall), and seeking His Pleasure.
[Regarding] the dunya [of the believer], if it is lost [in the Path of Allaah], then Allaah will compensate for it…
It is not befitting for the believer to begin the day or the evening except in a state of repentance, for indeed he does not know when death may strike – [whether] in the morning or the evening.
After [being blessed with] eemaan, the worshipper [of Allaah] has not been blessed with anything better than intellect.
The example of the believer is like the pearl; wherever it is [found], its beauty is with it (i.e. wherever he may be, his beautiful characteristics accompany him).
By Allaah! Allaah has venerated the sanctity of the believer, such that He has prohibited you from assuming other than good of your brother.
From the indicators of the tenderness of a believer’s heart is that he feels pain at the mishap of his believing brother when he slips up, so much so that it is as if he himself is the one who has slipped up; and he [certainly] does not maliciously rejoice [at his brother’s lapse].
It used to be said the believer has never sought aid in his religion with [anything] like khashyah of Allaah.
