we were never happy over anything after our Islam

It is reported by Anas bin Malik (RA) that he said: As me and the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عله وسلم) were leaving the Masjid, we came across a man at the door of the Masjid, he said:
“يا رسول الله، متى الساعة؟”
“O Messenger of Allah! When is the Hour?”
The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عله وسلم) said
: «ما أعددت لها؟»
“what have you prepared for it?”
Anas said: it seemed as if the man gave in.
Then he said:
يا رسول الله، ما أعددت لها كبير صلاة ولا صيام ولا صدقة،
ولكني أحب الله ورسوله
“O Messenger of Allah! I have not prepared for it anything great of Salah, nor of Siyam, nor of Sadaqah, however I love Allah and His Messenger.”
So he (صلى الله عله وسلم) said:
فأنت مع من أحببت
“then you are with whom you have loved.”

And in another narration Anas added:
فما فرحنا بعد الإسلام فرحاً أشد من قول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم
“So we were never happy over anything after our Islam, a happiness greater than the statement of the Prophet (صلى الله عله وسلم):
«فإنك مع من أحببت»
“then you are with whom you have loved.”
[Bukhari, Muslim, and Tirmidhi]
