Measure of Sincerity
He who wishes that people always remember him with goodness is neither God-fearing nor sincere.
Ibrahim bin Adham
Since I understood four things, I have discarded all other knowledge.
1.First, that my daily sustenance has already been apportioned to me and will neither increase nor decrease by my futile efforts, so I strive to increase it no more.
2.Second, I alone and no one else can atone for my sins, so I devote myself to the Lord.
3.Third, I know that I will never be able to escape death, which is in our pursuit, so I have prepared myself to meet him.
4.Fourth, I know that God is observing me; therefore I restrain from doing what I must not do.”
Imam Haatim al-Asamm
