Likewise, the one who is elderly does not wait except for death; so how repulsive of him [if he were] to persist upon falling into sin [while death beckons].
What is the ruling if I see someone committing a sin, and I don’t advise him because he knows the ruling?
A lack of fear [of Allaah] is due to a lack of remorse in the heart [at transgressing against Allaah], just as a house which has not been lived in will deteriorate.
O people who sin against Allaah, do not be misled by the extent of Allaah’s Gentleness over you, [rather] be aware of His Anger…
Whenever I looked at al-Fudhayl [ibn ’Iyaadh], [the mere sight of him] would awaken sadness [in my heart], [causing me to] despise myself, and then weep.
