Grief

Man on the edge of pier

Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim said:

يَقول ابن القيم رحمه الله – الحُزنُ يُضعِفُ القَلب ، ويُوهن العَزم ويَضُر الإرادَة ، ولا شيءَ أحب إلى الشيطان مِن حُزن المؤمن

“Grief weakens the heart and determination, & hurts the will ; and nothing is more beloved to Shaytan than a sad believer”.

From his book Tareequl Hijratain

[طريق الهجرتين1/418]
