Ali b. al-Fudayl said to his father: Oh Father! How sweet are the words of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings of Allah upon him)!

So he said: Oh son, do you know what made it sweet?

He replied: No.

So he said: Because they sought through it Allah the Exalted [1].

[1] Shu’ab al-Iman 2/298 – al-Bayhaqi

قَالَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْفُضَيْلِ لِأَبِيهِ: يا أبت، مَا أَحْلَى كَلَامَ أَصْحَابِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَ: يَا بُنَيَّ، وَتَدْرِي لِمَ حَلَا؟ قَالَ: لَا يَا أَبت، قَالَ: لِأَنَّهُمْ أَرَادُوا بِهِ اللهَ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى
