Sincerity and Love that are praised cannot co-exist in one’s heart

Sincerity and Love that are Praised cannot Coexist.. ❤

Ibn Al Qiyyam said

Sincerity and Love that are praised cannot co-exist in one’s heart just like water and fire cannot co-exist.

If you urge yourself to seek sincerity,
– you should kill greed first by using a knife made of despair, and
– you should neglect praise and thanks and
– be ascetic like asceticism in this worldly life.

If you
– killed greed and
– abandoned praise and
– thanks, sincerity would be easy for you

If you said, “what will help me to kill greed and abandon praise and thanks?”

You can say, ” What will help you to kill greed is by surely knowing that every matter that the servant could be greedy about is in the hands of Allah, and surely no one else has the keys to this lock.

Allah alone can bestow it upon His servant.

The servant should know that there is neither praise nor thanks nor dispraise or blame that can harm you or be useful to you except that of Allah.

Once a bedouin said to the Prophet (salallahu alahi wa sallam),
“My praise beautifies and my dispraise disgraces.’

He said, ‘The one who can do that is Allah the Exalted and ever Majestic.'” Do not praise the one whose praises of you will not beautify you, and do not dispraise the one whose dispraise of you will not disgrace you.

Only praise the One whose beauty is in His praise and disgrace is in His dispraise.

This cannot be done except through being patient and belief and having firm belief.

– you lose patience and belief,
– you will be like the one who wanted to travel by sea without a boat.

Allah the Exalted says:

So be patient O Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). Verily, the Promise of Allah is true, and let not those who have no certainty of faith, discourage you from conveying Allah’s Message (which you are obliged to convey). (Ar-Rum 30:60)

and He , the Almighty says:

And We made from among them (Children of Israel), leaders, giving guidance under Our Command, when they were patient and used to believe with certainty in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). (As-Sajdah 32:24)
