I give you my thoughts at the entrance to this travern of intoxication.
Taste them as a first sip of spiritua wine.

Imam Shafi'i ( may God's mercy on him) said,

" the world is but a moment; so make it (a moment) of obedience"

Al- Busti says in his famous poem:

Increase in worldly things is to a man but diminishment.
And his profits in other than sheer goodness
are nothing but loss.

Imam Ismail al Maqqari says in a poem counseling his son:

Till when will you dwell in illusion and distraction?
How long will you sleep and not awake?
Will you spend all that you have in the love of that
Which God set lower than the wing of gnat?
If Qarun's fortune from it you should obtain,
it would still be but a morsel on your mouth
and a cloth on your body.
