Abdullah ibn Wahb (may Allah shower him with Mercy) said:

“Every enjoyable matter [in this Life] can only be enjoyed once, except for worship, for it’s pleasure is felt three times:

As you are in it,

Whenever you remember it, and

When you are given its reward” [1]

قال عبد الله بن وهب: "كل ملذوذ إنما له لذة واحدة، إلا العبادة، فإن لها ثلاث لذات: – إذا كنت فيها – وإذا تذكرتها – وإذا أعطيت ثوابها".ـ
