Ibrahim ibn Bashar reported: Ibrahim ibn Adham, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “If the kings and their sons knew what we experience of pleasure and happiness in Islam, they would fight us for it with their swords.”

عن إِبْرَاهِيم بْن بَشَّارٍ قال إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ أَدْهَمَ رحمه الله لَوْ عَلِمَ الْمُلُوكُ وَأَبْنَاءُ الْمُلُوكِ مَا نَحْنُ فِيهِ مِنَ النَّعِيمِ وَالسُّرُورِ لَجَالَدُونَا بِالسُّيُوفِ
