True devotion is to loose the faculty of being conscious of your devotion; for someone who identifies devotion in his devotion is a person whose devotion is in need of devotion.

Your hope in my heart is the rarest treasure

Your Name on my tongue is the sweetest word

My choicest hours

Are the hours I spend with You -

 

O God, I can't live in this world

Without remembering You

Yearning for Allah and His meeting is like the gentle breeze blowing upon the heart, extinguishing the blaze of the Dunya. Whosoever caused his heart to settle with his Lord shall be in a state, calm and tranquility, and whosoever sent it amongst the people shall be disturbed and excessively perturbed.

- Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah

If you devote yourself to God in this world, He will admit you among His chosen servants in the hereafter. Such devotion, however, demands sacrifice and self-denial, the two instruments that make union with God possible.

When my heart became constricted and my paths became narrow

I took my hope in Your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and

an escape

My sins seemed very great to me but when I compared them to

Your forgiveness

I found Your forgiveness to be greater

Were you to put your complete trust in Allah, He would provide

for you as He provides for the birds. They issue forth hungry

in the morning and return filled in the evening.

- Muhammad (salAllahu alayhi wasalam)

Ikhlass (sincerity) cannot be combined in the heart together with the love of being praised and the greed for what other people have, except in the way that water and fire are combined.

So if your conscious tells you to seek ikhlaas, then turn to greed firstly, and slaughter it with the knife of despair [1], then turn to the love of being praised and abandon it like how those who adore the life of this world abandon the hereafter. If you are successful in slaughtering greed and in abandoning the love of being praised, then ikhlaas will be easy for you.

Taken from al-Fawaa’id, P. 221
