  • It was narrated from Thabit that Anas said:

    "We were with Abu Moosa on a journey, and the people were talking and mentioning worldly matters. Abu Moosa said:

    '0 Anas, these people are talking too much. Come, let us remember our Lord for a while.' Then he said: 'What slowed the people down (in pursuing matters of the hereafter)?' I said: 'Worldly matters, Satan and whims and desires.' He said:

    'No, it is the fact that this world is close, and they can see it, while the hereafter is hidden from them. By Allah, if they could see it with their own eyes, they would not drift or turn away from it."'

    - Tafseer al Qurtubi under the tafseer of verse 16 of Surat Al-'A'la
    The sunnah is like the ark of Noah, whoever embarks upon it reaches salvation and whoever refuses is drowned.

    • It is reported that Abū Ḥāzim Salamah b. Dīnār – Allāh have mercy on him – was once asked:

      “O Abū Ḥāzim, do you not see how prices have risen?” He replied, “And what is the worry? Verily, he (Allāh) who provides for us during deflation is the one who will provide for us during inflation.”

      Abū Nuʿaym, Ḥilyatu Al-ʾAwliyāʾ 3:239.

      The sunnah is like the ark of Noah, whoever embarks upon it reaches salvation and whoever refuses is drowned.

      • “The believer in this world is like a stranger: he does not become upset when it puts him down, and he does not compete for it to make him honorable. The people are in a certain state, and he is in another state: the people are relieved of him, and he is exhausted of himself.” - al-Hasan al-Basri

        • Maymun b. Mihran Describes The Salaf He Met

          It is reported that Maymūn b. Mihrān – Allāh have mercy on him – said:

          I have met men in front of whom I would be ashamed to speak, and I have met men who used to say nothing but the truth, or be silent. And I have met men who had never seen the sky properly, out of fear of their Lord.

          Abū Bakr Al-Daynūrī, Al-Mujālasah wa Jawāhir Al-ʿIlm article 2039.

              • Al Awza'i: Whoever remembers death often will find a small amount enough for him and whoever includes his speech in his deeds will speak little.
