    • Those before you used to give
      to their worldly affairs what
      was left over from their pursuit
      of the hereafter. But today you
      give to the matters of the hereafter,
      the leftovers from your pursuit of
      worldly affairs. 'Awn ibn 'Abdillah.
      Quoted by Abi Nu'aym in
      Hilyat al `Awliya.

        Quoted by Al-Bukhr, Al-Sahh, Chapter on the believer fearing that his deeds will be nullified without him realizing.
