Imaam Ibnul Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said:
The truthful one (i.e. the one sincere to Allaah in his/her deeds) is the one who does not care if all the status he/she possesses were removed from the hearts of the creation (i.e. the people) for the sake of rectifying his/her heart.
[Madaarij As-Saalikeen 3/186]
