إنَّ المَرْءَ قَدْ يَسُرُّهُ دَرَكُ ما لَمْ يَكُنْ لِيَفُوتَهُ، ويَسُؤُءُهُ فَوْتُ ما لَمْ يَكُنْ لِيُدْرِكَهُ، فَلْيَكُنْ سُرُورُكَ بِما نِلتَ مِنْ آخِرَتِكَ، ولْيَكُنْ أسَفُكَ على ما فاتَكَ مِنْها، ولْيَكُنْ هَمُّكَ لِما بَعْدَ المَوْتِ۔

A man may be happy to gain what he was not meant to lose, and [he may be] saddened to lose what he was not meant to gain; so let your happiness be in that which you have acquired for your Hereafter and let your sadness be in that which you have lost from it; and let your concern be for that which comes after death.
