Ibrahim Ibn Adham

Ibrahim ibn Adham was one of the righteous predecessors. He was known for his piety and acts of worship.

He was once asked, "Have you ever felt happy in the world?"

He replied, "Yes, twice.

The first time, one day, I was sitting and a someone came to me and relieved himself upon me.

The second time, I was seated and someone came and slapped me."

Risalah Qusharyyri p. 277
