Whoever sees sincerity in his sincerity, his sincerity is itself in need of sincerity

Whoever sees sincerity in his sincerity, his sincerity is itself in need of sincerity.”

What a profound statement! 

On a scale of one to ten, how sincere is your worship?  Wait, don’t answer that!

Many people are satisfied with their worship knowing that they did it solely for the sake of Allah (SWT) alone.  They think their work is pure with ikhlaas free of any riyaa.  However, whoever believes that his worship is pure and he considers himself truely sincere, then his sincerity and ikhlas needs a reality check!  The true worshipper is never satisfied with his worship, rather he is always worried about his sincerity and he never sees true sincerity in himself even if it were there!  The true worshipper is worried about his ibaadah up until his or her death.

Indeed, “the destruction of every sincere person lies in his sincerity, (he is destroyed) to the extent that he sees sincerity in himself. When he abandons seeing sincerity in himself he will be sincere and purified.”
