Racing Towards Allaah


Al-Hasan al-Basree said:

“If you see a man competing with you with regard to this world then compete with him concerning the Hereafter.”

Wuhayb Ibn al-Ward said:

“If you are able to make sure that no one precedes you in hastening towards Allaah then do so.”

Muhammad Ibn Yoosuf al-Asbahaanee, the worshipper, said,

“If a person hears of another person or knows of another person who is more obedient to Allaah than him, then that should grieve him.”

Another from the Salaf said:

“If a man hears or knows of another man who is more obedient to Allaah than himself and this causes his heart to break – then this is not a case of vanity.”
