As Time passes

Abdullah bin Mas'ud radiyalaahu anhu said: "Indeed I hate to see a man idle, neither working for this world nor the hereafter."

Hassan Basri rahiimahulaah said: "O son of Adam, indeed you are only but a number of days. Whenever a day passes a part of you leaves with it."

Hassan said: "I met pious people who are more misely with there time than they are with their wealth."

Hassan also said in a sermon. "Do not let the temporary and little charms of this world distract you and entice you... and do not say tomorrow and tomorrow, for indeed you do not know when you will be heading to Allah."
