The one who is (truly) imprisoned is the one whose heart is imprisoned….

Ibn Taymeeyah said:

المحبوس من حبس قلبه عن ربه تعالى والمأسور من أسره هواه


The one who is (truly) imprisoned is he whose heart is imprisoned from Allaah, and the one who is [truly] detained is he whose desires have detained him. (Ibn al-Qayyim, al-Wabil al-Sayyib, p,69)
