Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal said: 'Zuhd is of three degrees: Firstly, to avoid the forbidden; this is the zuhd of the common people. Secondly, to avoid what is lawful but unnecessary; this is the zuhd of the elite. Thirdly, to avoid everything that distracts one from Allah; this is the zuhd of the gnostics.'

May Allah grant us the ability to attain these degrees of Zuhud.
