"If your soul desires that you seek sincerity, then first start by attacking greed and slaying it with the knife of despair [reach a state of complete loss of desire for worldly things], and attack the love for praise by becoming an ascetic toward it the way that the lovers of the worldly life are ascetic toward the Hereafter. If you succeed in slaying greed and becoming ascetic toward praise, sincerity will become easy for you." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"The worldly life is a rotten corpse. Lions do not attack rotten corpses." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"Whoever, among the workers, wishes to know his status in the eye of the King, let him look at what jobs He gives him and with what He busies him." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"This world is a bridge and a bridge should not be taken as a home." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"If repentance had not been one of the most beloved things to God, He would not have tested one of the most honored of His creations [humans] with sins. Repentance is the pinnacle of human perfection." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"Satan rejoiced when Adam (AS) came out of Paradise, but he did not know that when a diver sinks into the sea, he collects pearls then rises again." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"Deeds without sincerity and without following the example of other righteous people is like a traveler filling his water bottle with dirt, which burdens him without benefiting him. — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"How can one be sensible who sells Paradise with all that it contains for the pleasure of an hour?" — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"A servant is not afflicted with a punishment more severe than the hardness of the heart and distance from God. If the hearts become hard, the eyes become dry" — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"The heart acquires rust through heedlessness and sins, and it is polished by the seeking of forgiveness and the remembrance of God." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"The true man is the one who fears the death of his heart, not the death of his body. Most people fear the death of their bodies and are not concerned with the death of their hearts. They do not know of life except the material part of it." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"As long as the servant carries out the remembrance of God and strives toward Him, God’s mercy pours upon him like a torrential rain. But if he becomes heedless, he will suffer drought because of it, and if he is overcome by heedlessness and taken over by it, his land becomes a dead and ruined land, his year becomes a barren and dry year, and the fire of desires blows everywhere over it like simoom [hot, dry and dusty desert wind]."  — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"When God wants good for a servant, He removes his heart’s ability to see his own good deeds, and he removes the ability of his tongue to talk about them. He busies him with seeing his sins, so that they are always in front of his eyes until he enters Paradise." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"If the servant awakens in the morning and goes to sleep at night with his entire concern being God’s pleasure, God will carry for him all his burdens and will carry out for him all his needs, and He will take away from him all that brings him worry and will cause him to dedicate his heart to His love, his tongue to His remembrance, and his limbs to His obedience." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"The servant stands between the hands of God twice: When he is performing ṣalāh [the formal prayer], and when he stands before Him on the Day of Judgment. Whoever carries out the rights of the first standing properly, the second standing will be easy for him, and whoever does not take the first standing seriously and does not give it what is due to it, the second standing will be difficult for him." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"O you who sold yourself for the sake of something that will cause you suffering and pain, and which will also lose its beauty, you sold the most precious item for the cheapest price, as if you neither knew the value of the goods nor the meanness of the price. Wait until you come on the Day of mutual loss and gain and you will discover the injustice of this contract."

"The land of human nature is wide and capable of growing whatever is planted in it. If you plant the tree of faith and fear of God, you will inherit the sweetest fruit, while if you plant the tree of ignorance and lust, all the fruit will be bitter." — Ibn Al-Qayyim

"Stay cautious of your ego. No trial has afflicted you except through it. Do not make peace with it, for by God, no one can bring honor to it except one who has humiliated it, and no one can bring greatness to it except one who has made it insignificant and submissive, and no one can make it whole except one who has broken it, and no one can bring rest to it except one who has exhausted it, and no one can bring security to it except one who has frightened it, and no one can bring happiness to it except one who has brought sadness to it." — Ibn Al-Qayyim
