​When Allah Wants Well For A Slave​

"If Allah wants well for a slave, He strips away from his heart the ability to see his own good deeds and speaking about them with his tongue,and preoccupies him with seeing his own sin, and it continues to remain in front of his eyes until he enters 
​J​annah." - 
Ibn Al-Qayyim

TRUE GOODNESS​

Goodness is not in your wealth and offspring being plentiful; true goodness is when your [good] deeds are plenty and you have great understanding and forbearance, and when you compete to worship your Lord. If you do good you praise Allah and thank Him, and if you sin you beg Allah’s forgiveness. There is no good in this life except with two types of men: A man who sins but then corrects himself through repentance, and a man who strives and hastens to get [the good] of the hereafter.
​ ---Ali Ibn Abi talib​

The best deed to achieve the pleasure of your Lord in every moment is that which is required and dictated by that time --​ Ibn al-Qayyim, Madarij al-Salikin
