Zuhd: Gateway to Wisdom

“If the slave does without in this life, Allah entrenches wisdom firmly in his heart, makes his tongue express such wisdom, empowers him to discern the defects of his self, and turns the sickness of his self into the cure of his self.”

-Sufyan al-Thawri [Rahimullah]

from ‘The Secrets of Asceticism’ (by Imam Al Qurtubi)
