Yahya on Dunya: Worldly life is nothing to Allah, and should be nothing to you

Abdullah ibn Sahl reported: Yahya ibn Mu’adh, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “The world has no worth to its Lord although he owns it, so it is not befitting for it to be worthwhile to you while you do not own it.”

عن عبد الله بن سهل قال يحيى بن معاذ رحمه الله الدُّنْيَا لا قَدْرَ لَهَا عِنْدَ رَبِّهَا وَهِيَ لَهُ فَمَا يَنْبَغِي أَنْ يَكُونَ قَدْرُهَا عِنْدَكَ وَلَيْسَتْ لَكَ
