When you do good, praise Allah Ta'ala, and when you fail, then ask for His forgiveness. Surely there are no benefits in this world except for 2 types of people: (1) someone who commits a wrong then amends it with repentance; and (2) someone who hastens to do good while he does not neglect to perform his required religious duties, hence, how can his deeds then deminish when goodness is blessed."SOURCE: 'Hilyatul-Awliya Wa Tabaqat al-Asfiya', by Abu Nu'aim al-Isfahani.
