Someone asked al-Fudayl ibn Iyaad (may Allah have mercy on him): Where is the Salvation from what we are finding ourselves in?!

So al-Fudayl said: Tell me, whoevers obeys Allah, will the disobedience of anyone harm him?

The man answered: No

So al-Fudayl said: And whoevers disobeys Allah, will the obedience of anyone benefit him?

He said: No

So he said: That is the salvation if you truly wished for one.

سَأل أحدهم الفُضَيل بن عِيَاض : ما الخَلاَص مما نحن فيه ؟
فقال الفُضَيل: أخبرني، مَن أطاع الله هل تَضُرُّه معصية أحد؟
قال: لا
فقال الفُضَيل : فمَنْ يَعصِي اللهَ هل تنفعه طاعة أحد؟
قال : لا
فقال الفُضَيل: هو الخَلاص، إنْ أرَدت الخَلاَص
