“I worshipped Allaah for fifty years…”

Ahmad bin Harb said:

I worshipped Allaah for fifty years, but tasted the delight of worship only after I abandoned three things:

I discarded seeking people’s pleasure, and thus was able to speak the truth. I abandoned associating with the wicked, and thus tasted the delight of accompanying the righteous. I ignored the delights of this world, and thus tasted the delight of the Hereafter.”

[As-Siyar, vol. 11, p. 34]

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
