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

Be Keen In Fulfilling Needs Of Others

Ibn Al Qayyīm رحمه الله narrates that Ibn Taymīyyāḥ (رحمه الله) used to race towards the fulfilling of people's needs very earnestly,  because he knew that everytime he helped someone, Allāh would help him.

[Rawdat-al Muhibbin 1/168]
