Wa minan naasi mai yashree nafsahub tighaaa'a mardaatil laah; wallaahu ra'oofum bil'ibaad
And of the people is he who sells himself, seeking means to the approval of Allah. And Allah is Kind to [His] servants.
1 Mufti Taqi Usmani
And among men there is one who sells his very soul to seek the pleasure of Allah, and Allah is Very-Kind to His servants.
