Abstinence From the World


عن [أبي العبَّاسِ سَهْلِ بنِ سَعْدٍ الساعديِّ] رَضِي اللهُ عَنْهُ قالَ: (جاءَ رَجُلٌ إلى النَّبيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، فَقالَ: يا رسولَ اللهِ، دُلَّنِي عَلَى عَمَلٍ إِذَا عَمِلْتُهُ أَحَبَّنِيَ اللهُ وأَحبَّنِيَ النَّاسُ. فَقَالَ: "ازْهَدْ فِي الدُّنْيَا يُحِبَّكَ اللهُ، وَازْهَدْ فِيمَا عِنْدَ النَّاسِ يُحِبَّكَ النَّاسُ". حديثٌ حَسَنٌ رواهُ ابنُ ماجَه وغيرُهُ بأسانيدَ حَسنةٍ.

From Sahl bin Saʿd al-Sāʿidī (raḍiyallāhu ʿanhu) who said:

A man came to the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wasallam) and said: "O Messenger of Allāh, direct me to an act which, if I do it, [will cause] Allāh to love me and people to love me." He said, "Abstain from (pursuit of) the world and Allāh will love you, and abstain from (pursuing) what people possess and people will love you."
