    Detachment from the Dunya is not that you should own nothing, but that nothing should own you.
    ~ Ali Ibn Abi Thalib R.A

      ‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab once said to Al-Ahnaf Ibn Qais:

      “O Ahnaf, the more one laughs, the less dignity will he posses. Whoever jokes (excessively or indecently) is a person who will be taken lightly. Whoever does something frequently will become known by that thing. Whoever speaks often, errs often; the more often one errs, the less modesty will he possess; whoever has a low level of modesty will also have a low level of piety; and when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies.” [Sifatus-Safwah, 1/1449]

          Whoever loves this worldly life, will estimate its value, and he will make himself a slave to it, and it will humiliate him. And whoever neglects it, will notice his great value, and it will serve him, and it will humiliate itself for him.

            Al-Husain ibn Mutair al-Asadi recited the following poem:

            إذا يسر الله الأمور تيسرت ولانت قواها واستقام عسيرها
            فكم طامع في حالة لن ينالها وكم آيس منها أتاه بشيرها
            وكم خائف صار المخوف ومقتر تموّل والأحداث يحلو مريرها
            وقد تغدر الدنيا فيمسي غنيّها فقيراً ويغني بعد بؤس فقيرها
            وكم قد رأينا من تكدّر عيشة وأخرى صفا بعد اكدرار غديرها

            "When Allaah makes matters easy, they become easy; their power weakens and their difficulty is removed.

            How many a person covets a condition which he shall never obtain; yet, it came to many a person who had despaired of attaining it.

            How many a scared person became one who is feared; how many a stingy person beame one who is wealthy. Circumstances change, the bitter things turning sweet.

            The world proves treacherous; the rich man becomes poor, and the poor man - after the hardship of poverty - becomes rich.

            How many a troubled and muddy life we have seen, but many a stream runs pure after the muddiness."

                              Al-Hasan Al Basri rahimahullah said:

                              We laugh and yet - who knows? - perhaps Allah has looked at some of our works and said: "I will not accept anything from you." Woe to you, son of Adam! Can you fight Allah? Whoever disobeys Allah is fighting Him. By Allah! I have met seventy veterans of Badr. Most of their garments were wool. Had you seen them you would have said they are crazy, and had they seen the best among you they would have said: "Those people will have no part in the Hereafter." Had they seen the worst among you they would have said: "Those people do not believe in the Day of Reckoning." I have seen people for whom this world was cheaper than the dust under their feet. I have seen people the like of whom would come home at night, not finding more than his own portion of food, and yet say: "I shall not put all of this into my belly. I shall certainly give some away for Allah's sake." Then he would give away some of his food in charity, even if he were more in need of it than its recipient. (Hilyat al Awliya by Abu Nu'aym)
