It is more beloved to me to bite onto a red coal until it cools

قال ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه:
 
لأن أعض على جمرة حتى تبرد أحب إلي من أن أقول لشيء قد قضاه الله: ليته لم يكن
 
كتاب الزهد أبي داود

 

Abdullaah Ibn Mas’ood (radiyAllahu’anhu):

“It is more beloved to me to bite onto a red coal until it cools, than for me to say about something that Allaah has preordained, ‘Only if it didn’t happen.‘ “ 

[Az-Zuhd, of Aboo Daawood, p. 136]
