Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali quotes a beautiful narration in جامع العلوم والحكم:

وفي مراسيل الحسن عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فيما يرويه عن ربه عز وجل قال: «علامة الطهر أن يكون قلب العبد عندي معلقًا، فإذا كان كذلك، لم ينسني على حال، وإذ كان كذلك، مننت عليه بالاشتغال بي كي لا ينساني، فإذا نسيني، حركت قلبه، فإن تكلم تكلم لي، وإن سكت، سكت لي، فذلك الذي تأتيه المعونة من عندي» (خرجه إبراهيم بن الجنيد).جامع العلوم والحكم 1:342

Among the mursal hadith of al-Hasan رحمه الله from the Prophet in that which he related from his Lord عز وجل there is that He said, "The sign of purity is that the slave's heart is attached to Me. When he is like that he does not forget Me in any state. When he is like that I bestow on him the gift of being occupied with Me so that he will not forget Me, and when he does forget Me I stir his heart. Then if he talks, he talks for My sake. If he is silent, he is silent for My sake. That is the one to whom help comes from Me." Ibrahim ibn al-Junayd narrated it.Translation from : The Compendium of Knowledge and Wisdom by Abdassamad Clarke (2007, Turath Publishing), pg. 221
