Opposing desires will gain you Allah’s shade

Ibn Qayyim al-Jawzeeyah 751 AH (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

إذا تأمّلت السبعة الذين يظلهم الله في ظل عرشه يوم لا ظل إلا ظله وجدتهم إنما نالوا ذلك الظل بمخالفة الهوى.

“If you contemplate about the seven whom Allaah will shade in the shade of His `Arsh wherein there is no shade but His, you will find that they deserved that shade because of their opposition to their desires.”

Taken from: “The Dispraise of Hawaa (lowly desires)”
