No life, except with death


Ibn al Qayyim (رحمه الله تعالى) said:

There is no honour for one’s soul except with submission (to Allaah)

No glory except with subservience (to Allaah)

No comfort except with weariness (for the sake of Allaah)

No satiation except with hunger (for the sake of Allaah i.e. fasting)

No security except with fear (of Allaah)

No pleasure except with feeling alienated from everything but its Creator

And no life except with death.

[Al Fawaa’id]
