When will I know that I am pious?”

Al-Samaqandee writes in his “Tanbeeh Al-Ghafileen”:

وعن عائشة رضي اللَّه تعالى عنها أنه سألها رجل فقال متى أعلم أني محسن؟ قالت إذا علمت أنك مسيء، قال متى أعلم أني مسيء؟ قالت إذا علمت أنك محسن

A man came to “Aishah (رضي الله عنها) and asked: “When will I know that I am pious?” She said: “When you realise that you are a sinner”. He said: “And when will I realise I am a sinner?” She replied: “When you think you are pious”.

[“Tanbeeh Al-Ghafileen”, 251].
