Sweetness of Worship – Al-Imaam Ahmad Harb

Al-Imaam Ahmad Harb (rahimahullah) said:

“I worshipped Allah for 50 years and I did not experience the sweetness of worship until I abandoned three things:

  • I abandoned pleasing the people in order to be able to speak the truth.
  • I abandoned the companionship of sinners until I found companionship of the righteous,
  • and I left the sweetness of the dunya until i found the sweetness of (seeking after) the hereafter.”
