Becoming Pious

Once at the time of tawaaf while Sultan Ibrahim bin Adham bin Mansur (Rahmatullah Alayh) was giving naseehat to a man, he said:

“Until five valleys have not been traversed, the rank of the Saaliheen cannot be attained. First: Close the door of ni’mat and open the door of hardship. Second: Close the door of respect and open the door of disgrace. Third: Close the door of comfort and open the door of difficulty. Fourth: Close the door of sleep and open the door of wakefulness. Fifth: Close the door of wealth and open the door of poverty.”

-Mashaaikh e Chist; pg. 118
