Junaid on Sincerity: Acts of sincerity lead to every door of righteousness

February 1, 2017

Al-Ghazali reported: Al-Junaid, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Verily, Allah has servants who use their minds. When they reason, they act. When they act, they are sincere. Sincerity calls them to all of the gates of righteousness.”

As-Susi, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Allah only desires sincerity in the deeds of his creatures.”

عن الغزالي قال الجنيد رحمه الله إن لله عباداً عقلوا فلما عقلوا عملوا فلما عملوا أخلصوا فاستدعاهم الإخلاص إلى أبواب البر أجمع

وقال السوسي رحمه الله مراد الله من عمل الخلائق الإخلاص فقط
