Indeed, those who fear their Lord unseen will have forgiveness and great reward.
It is reported that ‘Umar b. ‘Abd Al-‘Azîz once wrote to Al-Hasan Al-Basrî to get a brief exhortation from him, so Al-Hasan wrote back ,
“The dunyâ distracts and preoccupies the heart and body, but al-zuhd (asceticism, not giving importance to worldly things) gives rest to the heart and body. Verily, Allâh will ask us about the halâl things we enjoyed, so what about the harâm!”
Al-Bayhaqî, Al-Zuhd Al-Kabîr, article 26.
O You Muslims! Increase in your worship of Allah! Fear Allah ‘azza wa jal! because verily you do not know when death is going to surprise you. How many people have left from their families and never returned to them? How many have went to sleep on their beds, and never got up? How many people have buttoned up their thobes and the only one who unfastened the buttons was the one washing their bodies [i.e. before burial] ? So fear Allah o slaves of Allah!
