"Ja’far ibn Burqan reported: I said to a man from Basra, “How can one of us continue to kneel before his Lord seeking his forgiveness for a sin, then he returns to it, then again he seeks forgiveness, then again he returns to it?” It was mentioned to Al-Hasan Al-Basiri and he said, “Satan wishes for you to think like this, so do not be discouraged from seeking forgiveness.”"

"

إني نظرت الى الخلق فرأيت لكل منهم محبوبا ومعشوقا يحبه ويعشقه، وبعض ذلك المحبوب يصاحبه إلى مرض الموت وبعضه يصاحبه إلى شفير القبر، ثم يرجع كله، ويتركه فريداً وحيداً، ولا يدخل معه في قبره منهم أحد فتفكرت وقلت: أفضل محبوب المرء ما يدخل معه في قبره، ويؤنسه فيه، فما وجدته غير الأعمال الصالحة، فأخذتها محبوبة لي؛ لتكون لي سراجاً في قبري، وتؤنسني فيه، ولا تتركني فريداً.


When I observed people I saw them loving others dearly and being attached to them. Some of these people they loved and were attached to will be with them when they’re ill or when they’re being lowered in the grave. However, all of these beloveds will return and will go back and leave them, desert them all alone. They will not be able to enter with them in the grave and help them. So I contemplated long and hard and came to the conclusion that: the best thing for a person or the most beloved and dear thing to a person should be what can enter with him into the grave and be close to him there. What i found that to be was nothing more than righteous actions or good deeds. So I took it as something dear and beloved to me so it can be a radiant lamp for me in the grave, be close to me and not leave me…
