A man came to Hasan al-Basri rahimauh Llah. He said
You (al-Basri) preach all this about prayer, the consequences of not obeying Allah, the loss etc. I’m the most corrupt man in this land. And y’know what. I have the most beautiful children, the most wealth & a successful business.
What blessing has Allah prevented me from getting? Where is my punishment?
Al-Basri asked him
can you wake up for Qiyam Al Layl?
The man replied
that that is your prevention. Allah has prevented you from being close to Him. You have lost everything
