Ibn Umar: Rasoolullah (SAW) turned to me and said:

“Be in this life like a stranger or a traveler.”

“If you reach the evening, do not await (to be alive) by dawn, And if you reach dawn, do not await (to be alive) by evening. Take advantage of your Health before you fall sick. And take advantage of your life, before you die.”
