Troubles in the Heart Won’t Stop Until…

Imām Ibn Taimiyyah, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

A heart doesn’t stop being put to trial until a slave [of Allāh] makes his religion [and adherence to it] completely for Allāh, Almighty and Majestic, [alone], so his having love [for anything] is for Allāh […], his having hatred [against anything], for Allāh […], and likewise, his support and allegiance [to some people] and his enmity [against others].
