Don’t Draw Distress Upon Yourself

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Keep yourself away from things that sadden you, and leave off things that bring you worries.

If [that thing turned out] to be a call, then don’t answer it; and if it were [some online] account, then don’t follow it.

Don’t draw worries upon yourself; don’t invite upon yourself agony and grief.

Save your patience for those things [you] can’t escape.

The wise one is one who keeps himself away from things he has no connection with.
