قَالَ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ الْإِمَامِ أَحْمَدَ لِأَبِيهِ يَوْمًا: أَوْصِنِي.

فَقَالَ: يَا بُنَيَّ! انْوِ الْخَيْرَ فَإِنَّكَ لَا تَزَالُ بِخَيْرٍ مَا نَوَيْتَ الْخَيْر.

Abdullah ibn al-Imam Ahmed said: I said one day to my father: Advice me.

So he said: O Son! [Always] intend Goodness, for you will always remain upon goodness, so long as you intend goodness.
