Abandoning Sins, By Ibn Al-Jawzee


Ibn Al-Jawzee said:

“Abandoning sin when one is old and his hair is grey is not like the one who abandoned sins when he is young.”

He also said:

“The illumination of grey hair, which signals to the path of departure from this life, should be enough warning and alert for a mature man.”

[Awaking From The Sleep Of Heedlessness, by Ibn Al-Jawzee, pp. 31 & 33]
