Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said:

“There isn’t any true relaxation for the believers besides the meeting of Allah.”



Imams Waki’ ibn Al Jarrah and Ahmad ibn Hambal (rahimahumallah) have recorded this statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

لا راحة للمؤمن دون لقاء الله عز وجل


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
