Mālik b. Dīnār said, 

❝If the dunyā consisted of temporary gold, and the Hereafter of eternal sand, then a smart person should choose the eternal sand and ignore the temporary gold!”

I say: ‘Well, then how difficult can our choice really be, when we know that the dunyā consists of temporary sand and the Hereafter consists of eternal gold?’❞

(al-Qurṭubī, al-Jāmiʿ li-Aḥkām al-Qurʾān: 20/22)

Play the Long Game  ?

لو فرج الله عن يوسف في أول ابتلائه ، لما آلت إليه خزائن مصر... قد يطول البلاء ليعظم العطاء... فثق بالله و لا تستعجل

❝ If Allah granted relief to Prophet Yusuf at the first hurdle of his weariness (and fatigue), then contrast that with the treasures of Egypt that came to him... One's trial/tribulation may be prolonged in order to magnify the gifting... Trust in Allah and do not be in haste. ❞

~ عبد العزيز الشثري
