"Verily the life of man is in the life of his heart and his soul. And there is no life in the heart except by knowing its creator, having love for him, worshipping him solely, turning to him in times of need, and seeking tranquillity with His remembrance. And he who loses this life has lost all good. Even if he attempts to substitute (this loss) with all that is in the world. For verily not even all of the world together would be able to replace this life. And verily for everything that a slave loses there is a substitute, but the one who loses Allah will never find anything to replace Him."
Ibn al-Qayyim in ad-Da' wad-Dawa Fasl 49
~Verily those who believe and do righteous deeds will have the gardens of al-firdaus (the loftiest form of paradise)." [Al-Qur'an 18:107]
~The advice of Sufyan ath-Thawri: "Work for the sake of this life within the extent of your stay in it, and for the Hereafter within the extent of your stay therein."
[Abdul-Malik al-Qasim's Life is a Fading Shadow, (Dar-us-Salam)]
