'Abdullah bin 'Awn, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said:
"Mention of the people is a disease and rememberance of Allaah is a cure."
Al-Haafidh Adh-Dhahabi, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: "I said: "Certainly by Allaah. So it is amazing how we and our ignorance, leave off the cure and embark upon the disease?
Allaah, the Most High, says: "So remember Me and I will remember you." [2:152] and He says: "And the rememberance of Allaah is greater." [29:45] and He says: "And those who believe and whose hearts find tranquility in the rememberance of Allaah. Do not the hearts find tranquility in the rememberance of Allaah?" [13:28]
However that isn't achieved except by the success of Allaah. And whoever constantly invokes Allaah and keeps knocking at the door, it will be opened for him."
