Caring about the World

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Muhyi ad-Din Abu Muhammad ibn Abu Swalih ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.) said, “O young man, why do you care about this world?  When it gives you things, it keeps you busy; and when it deprives you of things, it fills you with sighs of disappointment.  If you have too little of this world, you become weak; and if you have too much of it, you feel too heavy.  While any of you is in the midst of things that he loves, diseases, illnesses, grieves, and cares attack him.  There is no benefit in it for anyone other than the person who spends it in obeying Allah (s.w.t.).”
