The secret of religiousness
Someone asked Hassan Al Basri(rh): “What is the secret of your religiousness?”
He replied :
“I understood 4 things:
- I understood that my rizq cannot be taken by anyone, so my heart became content.
- I understood that no one can do my actions (worship) for me, so I started doing them myself.
- I understood that Allah is watching me, so I became ashamed to do wrong.
- I understood that death is waiting for me, so I started to prepare for my meeting with Allah.”
