The Qualities of a Sincere Muslim:

by Anonymous


1. One who sacrifices his life and all its interest in the path of God, makes complete submission to Him, and resigns himself wholly to His Will.

2. One who engages all his faculties in devotion to God, eschews every act of disobedience, and prostrates himself before Him.

3. One who shuns, as far as possible, every path of evil, and avoids occasions of the displeasure of God.

4. One who seeks God with true sincerity and exalted magnanimity, and shows firmness and loyalty unshaken under the severest trials.

5. Such a person must have a union with God which cannot be cut asunder by swords, nor burned by fire; adversity cannot loosen the tie, the death of the nearest relatives has not the slightest effect upon it, the separation of the dearest objects does not interfere with it, and the most fearful calamities do not shake it.

6. He is willing to subject himself to every disgrace and affliction for the sake of God, and turns to Him with such exclusive devotion and sincerity as to regard all others beside Him as dead.

7. Death comes over all his passions and desires. In short all the members of his body and all the faculties which sustain him are made to work in total submission to God, and his life and death have no other object but the pleasure of God.
