الإمام جعفر الصادق (عليه السَّلام ):
مَن أصبَحَ و أمسى و الدنيا أكبَرُ هَمِّهِ جَعَلَ اللّهُ تعالى الفَقرَ بينَ عَينَيهِ و شَتَّتَ أمرَهُ و لم يَنَلْ مِن الدنيا إلاّ ما قَسَمَ اللّهُ له ، و مَن أصبَحَ و أمسى و الآخرةُ أكبَرُ هَمِّهِ جَعَلَ اللّهُ تعالى الغِنى في قلبِهِ و جَمَعَ لَهُ أمرَهُ .
Imam Ja‘far al-Ṣadiq (as):
The person who wakes up in the morning and retires at night having worldly affairs as his greatest concern, Allah places poverty between his eyes, scatters his affairs, and he will not take from this world more than what Allah has apportioned for him. As for the one who wakes up in the morning and retires at night having the Hereafter as his greatest concern, Allah places needlessness in his heart and brings together his affairs for him.
