Missing Out on Things in Life

The great scholar, Shaikh Muḥammad ibn Ṣāliḥ Al-ʿUthaimīn, may Allāh have mercy on him, said:

You find that the People of the Hereafter, [those who work toward it], don’t get upset about what they miss out on from this present life; if something comes to them from this present life, they take it, [but] if something escapes them, they don’t get upset about it.

Sharḥ Riyāḍ Al-Ṣāliḥīn, vol. 3, p. 48, as quoted by Shaikh Fawāz Al-Madkhalī.
