So wait steadfastly…..

The sea of pleasures may drown its owner and the swimmer fears to open his eyes under the water. Allah promised you the pleasures of the Akhira, so do not be in a hurry and seek them in this worldly life as if you are cutting plants before their harvest time, while they are much better if you wait. Likewise, the pleasures of the Hereafter are so much better. Buy for yourself (through doing good deeds) while there is still a market and you have the ability to buy. Everyone will pass through times of sleep and neglect (following his lusts), but do not sink into sleep as the morning of the Akhira is close at hand…

(Ibn qayim~Al-fawaa’id))
