I worshiped Allah for Fifty Years

Nasr ibn Mahmood al Balkhee said; Ahmad ibn Harb stated:

“I worshiped Allah for fifty years, I wasn’t able to find the sweetness of worship until I forsook three things:

1. I forsook seeking the acceptance of people, so I was able to speak the truth.

2. I forsook the companionship of the sinner, so I was able to accompany the righteous.

3. I forsook the sweetness of the life of this world, so I was able to find the sweetness of the afterlife.
