Hadhrat Sufyaan Bin Uyainah (rahmatullah alayh) said: “There are only three letters in the word ZHD. The harf zaa symbolizes renunciation from zeenat (adornment). The harf haa indicates abandonment of hawaa (lust) of the nafs. The harf daal symbolizes shunning the entire dunya. When you have achieved this, only then will you be a true zaahid.” Hadhrat Abu Sulaimaan Daaraani (rahmatullah alayh) said: “Everything which prevents you from the remembrance of Allah, be it wife, children, wealth or worldly provisions, is evil for you.”
