How To Attain The The Sweetness Of Worship


Nasr ibn Mahmood al Balkhee said; Ahmad ibn Harb stated:

“I worshiped Allaah for fifty years, I wasn’t able to find the sweetness of worship until I forsook three things:

1) I forsook seeking the acceptance of people, so I was able to speak the truth.

2) I forsook the companionship of the sinner, so I was able to accompany the righteous.

3) I forsook the sweetness of the life of this world, so I was able to find the sweetness of the afterlife.”

[Adh-Dhahabee, Siyar]
