Someone asked Hassan Al Basri (R.A): “What is the secret of your piety?” He replied; I understood 4 things:

1. I understood my rizq cannot be taken by anyone so my heart is contended.

2. I understood no one can do my actions. (worship) so I started doing them myself.

3. I understood Allah (SWT) watching me, so I felt shame to do wrong.

4. I understood death is waiting for me so I started to prepare for my meeting with Allah (SWT).

May Almighty grant us better understanding of His Deen Ameen!
