In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Abdullah bin Mas’ud (May Allah be pleased with him) said: “Indeed I hate to see a man idle, neither working for this world nor for the Hereafter.”
Hassan Basri (May Allah have mercy on him) said: “O son of Adam, indeed you are only but a number of days. Whenever a day passes, a part of you leaves with it.”
Hassan said: “I have met (pious) people who are more miserly with their time than they are with their wealth.”
Hassan also said in a sermon, “Do not let the temporary and little charms of this world distract you and entice you…and do not say tomorrow and tomorrow, for indeed you do not know when you will be heading to Allah.”
