Life Is A Journey
‘Umar Ibn Al-Khattaab and Aboo Dardaa met, and the latter asked, “Do you remember the hadeeth of the Prophet?” ‘Umar asked, “Which hadeeth?” Aboo Dardaa replied, “The Messenger of Allaah said, ‘You should keep your worldly things to the extent that a traveller keeps his luggage for his journey.’ ”
‘Umar said, “I remember this hadeeth.” Aboo Dardaa said, “O ‘Umar, are you aware of what we did after that? We have accumulated the worldly things in large quantities.”
At this, they began to weep while remembering the life of Allaah’s Messenger all the way until Fajr!
