 Nasr ibn Mahmood al Balkhee said;

Ahmad ibn Harb stated: “I worshiped Allaah 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.
