إنَّ مَنْ كانَتِ العاجِلَةُ أمْلَكَ بِهِ مِنَ الآجِلَةِ، وأُمُورُ الدُّنيا أغْلَبُ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ أُمورِ الآخرَةِ،فَقَدْ باعَ الباقيَ بِالفاني، وتَعَوَّضَ البائِدَ عَنِ الخالِدِ، وأهْلَكَ نَفْسَهُ، ورَضِيَ لَها بِالحائلِ الزَّائِلِ، ونَكَبَ بِها عَنْ نَهْجِ السَّبيلِ۔

Verily the one who is more possessive of this world than of the Hereafter and is more overwhelmed by the affairs of this world than those of the next, has sold the everlasting for the transient and has exchanged the eternal for the temporal; he has destroyed his soul and has accepted for it the perishing and short-lived while causing it to deviate from the clear path [of guidance].
