عن المُفَضّلِ بن صالح : قالُ الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : إنَّ للّه‏ِ عِبادا عامَلوهُ بخالِصٍ مِن سِرِّهِ ، فعامَلَهُم بخالِصٍ مِن بِرِّهِ ، فهُمُ الّذينَ تَمُرُّ صُحُفُهُم يَومَ القِيامَةِ فُرَّغاً ، وَإذا وَقَفوا بَينَ يدَيهِ تعالى مَلأها مِن سِرِّ ما أسَرُّوا إلَيهِ . فقلتُ : يا مَولاي ، ولِمَ ذلكَ؟ فقالَ : أجَلَّهُم أنْ تَطَّلِعَ الحَفَظَةُ على ما بَينَهُ وبَينَهُم.

Verily Allah has servants who sincerely engage in transaction with Him in secrecy, so Allah gives them from His pure reward and goodness, for they are the ones who will come on the Day of Resurrection with their book of deeds empty, and when they stand in front of Allah, their books will be filled with the secrets that they had with Him’. [Mufadhal narrates], I asked, ‘O my master, why will their books be empty?’ The Imam replied, ‘Allah holds them in such high regard that He does not even want the guardian angels to be aware of what is between Him and them.

عَن جَبرئيلَ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ لَمّا سألَهُ النّبيُّ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) عن تَفسيرِ الإخْلاصِ ـ : المُخْلِصُ الّذي لا يَسألُ النّاسَ شَيئاً حتّى يَجِدَ، و إذا وَجدَ رَضِيَ، و إذا بَقِيَ عِندَهُ شيء أعْطاهُ فِي اللّه‏ِ ، فإنَّ مَن لَم يَسألِ المَخلوقَ فَقَد أقَرَّ للّه‏ِ عزّوجلّ بالعُبودِيَّةِ ، و إذا وَجَدَ فرَضِيَ فهُو عنِ اللّه‏ِ راضٍ ، واللّه‏ُ تباركَ وتعالى عنهُ راضٍ، و إذا أعطى للّه‏ِ عزّوجلّ فهُو على حَدِّ الثِّقَةِ برَبِّهِ عزّوجلّ.

The archangel Gabriel (AS), when he was asked by the Prophet (SAWA) about the meaning of sincerity, replied, ‘The sincere one is he who does ask the people anything until he himself finds it, and when he finds it he is pleased. Whenever he has a remainder of a thing, he gives it to others, because if a person does not ask anything from creation, he has established that his servitude is solely for Allah, Mighty and Exalted, and if he finds and he is pleased then he is pleased with Allah and Allah – Blessed and most High – is pleased with him, and if he gives for the sake of Allah then he has reached the station of reliance on his Lord, Mighty and Exalted

Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 72, p. 304, no. 51; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 858

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : العِبادَةُ الخالِصَةُ أنْ لا يَرجوَ الرّجُلُ إلّا رَبَّهُ ، ولا يَخافَ إلّا ذَنْبَهُ.
