Pillars of Piety

Someone asked Hassan Al Basri: “What is the secret of your piety?”

He replied,
“I understood 4 things:

  1. I understood my rizq (provision) cannot be taken by anyone so my heart is content.
  2. I understood that no one can do my actions (worship) for me, so I started doing them myself.
  3. I understood Allah ﷻ is watching me, so I felt shame to do any wrong.
  4. I understood death is waiting for me so I started to prepare for my meeting with Allah ﷻ.”

[Unsure of the source, but the words hold true]
