When the night is completely dark,
It finds them staying up in the night
Fear has chased away their sleep
So they stay up
While those who feel secure in this life
Quietly sleep on
Ibn al Mubarak

Do you possibly know the source for this statement of Ibn al Mubarak sister?
I’m looking into it akhee, inshaa’Allaah once I find out which book it is derived from I shall definitely post.
As salaamu alaikum
I remember reading this in ‘The Purification of the Soul’ from the works of Ibn al Qayyim, Ibn Rajab and al Ghazali.
It is quite a profound saying. JazaakAllah khaire for sharing
