It is narrated from the words of Ibrahim ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Abul-Aswad that al-Hasan al-Basri sent a letter to’ Umar ibn ‘Abdul-‘Aziz, which said the following: “And thereafter… Truly, this world is a temporary abode, and no one will stay here forever. And, verily, Adam was brought down here as a punishment. Therefore, O Commander of the Faithful, beware (of this world). Its riches have abandoned her and the wealth in her is her poverty. From time to time she kills, and humiliates the one who is dearest, and makes the one who hoard (earthly wealth) beggars. Its (blessings) are like poison that is eaten by someone who does not know it until he is dead. Live in this world like a sick person healing from wounds. He adheres to a diet for a short period, fearing a protracted illness, and endures what is unpleasant for him, fearing a long trial. Beware of this seductive world which deceives with its beauties and gives hope, seduces and bewitches. She’s like a well-dressed bride. Eyes are attracted to her, hearts are fascinated by her, souls fall in love with her. But this bride is killing all her husbands. ” Abu Nu’aym in “Hilyatul-awliya” (6 / 312-314).
