The sign of not being attached (zuhd) to the [life of this] world and to people – Shaykh Muhammad Ramzan al-Hājirī

Shaykh Muhammad Ramzan al-Hājirī, may Allah protect him from every kind of harm, said: A legacy for myself and everyone [to hold on to:]

Al-Fudhayl ibn ‘Iyaadh, may Allah have mercy on him, said:

The sign of not being attached (zuhd) to the [life of this] world and to people is that you do not love people praising youand that you do not worry about their criticisms; and if you were able to avoid being known [to people], do [that]; and it is not to be held against you that you are unknown; and it is not to be held against you that you receive no acclaim; and it is not to be held against you that you are criticized by people, if you were someone praised by Allāh.

Hilyah al-Awliyā’, 8/90
