Like walking in sand..

‏قال ابن مسعود «رضي الله عنه» :

المخلص لربه كالماشي على الرمل لا تسمع خطواته ولكن ترى آثاره

[جامع العلوم والحكم 302]

Ibn Masood رضي الله عنه said:

The one who is sincere to his lord is like a person who walks on sand. You don’t hear his footsteps but you can see his traces.

Another thing not taught in schools

He used to search out the time in which the prayer was accepted..

عَنِ ابْن طاووس ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ :

‏أَنَّهُ كان يَتَحَرَّى السَّاعَةَ الَّتِي يُسْتَجَابُ فِيهَا الدُّعاءُ

‏مِنْ يوم الْجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ الْعَصْر

‏قال ابْنُ طَاووسٍ:

‏وماتَ أَبِي فِي ساعَةٍ كَانَ يُحِبُّهَا،

‏ماتَ يومَ الْجُمُعَةِ بَعْدَ الْعَصْرِ

‏[ مصنف عبد الرزاق ٥٥٧٤ ]

Ibn Tawoos رحمة الله عليه said about his father:

He used to actively search out the hour in which prayers are answered from the day of Friday after ‘asr (which is one hour before maghreb).

Ibn Tawoos then said:

My father died in that same hour that he loved (to search out). He died on a Friday after ‘asr.

The greatest open door…

قال ابن القيم رحمه الله :


‏الذكر هو باب الله الأعظم المفتوح بينه وبين عبده مالم يغلقه العبد بغفلته


‏- مدارج السالكين

Ibn al-Qayyim رحمة الله عليه said:

Dhikr is the greatest open door (of opportunity to draw close to Allah) between Him سبحانه و تعالى and His slave, as long as the slave does not close it with his negligence.
