Tasting the Sweetness (Delight) of Faith

26. Narrated Anas (radhi Allaahu anhu) : The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) said,

Whoever possesses the following three (qualities) will have the sweetness (delight) of faith :

  1. The one to whom Allaah (Subhahanu wata’alaa) and His Messenger (Muhammad Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) become dearer than anything else.
  2. Who loves a person and he loves him only for Allaah’s sake. 
  3. Who hates to revert to atheism (disbelief) as he hates to be thrown into the fire.

[Saheeh Al-Bukhaari, Hadeeth No. 15, Vol. 1]
