Whoever takes a path of asceticism..

قال علي رضي الله عنه

مَنْ زَهِدَ فِي الدُّنْيَا هَانَتْ عَلَيْهِ الْمُصِيبَاتُ ، وَمَنِ ارْتَقَبَ الْمَوْتَ سَارَعَ فِي الْخَيْرَاتِ ” .

كتاب الزهد لابن الدنيا

Ali رضي الله عنه said:

Whoever takes a path of asceticism in this life will not be bothered by any calamity. And whoever anticipates death will be foremost in doing good.
