Make a private place for yourself in this world, because fascinating things will be presented to you. Know them and be on your guard, and do not be harmed by withdrawing from preoccupations while you are among them.
The light of truth is greater and brighter than that of the sun, therefore there is no problem if those having insight are dim sighted.
The road to Allaah is free from those who have doubt, and those who give in to their lusts. It is full of those having certainty and patience. They are like guideposts along the road:
“And We made from among them (Children of Israel), leaders, giving guidance under Our Command, when they were and used to believe with certainty in Our Aayaat.” [Surah As-Sajdah: 24]
Ibn al-Qayyim, al-Fawaa’id
