I became convinced in four things (i.e. that these four things penetrated my heart).
- I am convinced that no one else will eat the provision Allah has decreed for me, so I am content.
- I am convinced that no one else is going to do good works except me, so I am busy doing them myself.
- I am certain death shall come unexpectedly, so I am busying myself in expectation of it.
- I am certain I shall never escape the sight of Allah, so I am shy to disobey Him while He is watching.
