Be A Stranger, A Traveler In This World

Narrated Mujahid: ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (raa) said, Allah’s Apostle (saws) took hold of my shoulder and said, ‘Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveler.”

The sub-narrator added: Ibn ‘Umar (raa) used to say, “If you survive till the evening, do not expect to be alive in the morning, and if you survive till the morning, do not expect to be alive in the evening, and take from your health for your sickness, and (take) from your life for your death.”

To make the Heart Tender (Ar-Riqaq) – Sahih Bukhari: Volume 8, Book 76, Number 425
