Al-Imām ibn al-Qayyim [may Allāh have mercy on him] said:

“Certainly, those whose soul shall desire disobedience; then choose to abandon it for [the Sake of] Allāh, those are the ones whom Allāh tests through trials; however their hearts are filled with piety, abstaining from Allāh’s prohibition and for them is forgiveness and a tremendous reward.”
