Know that when you stand before Allah [on the day of Judgment], you will be questioned about four things: Your youth and how you wasted it, your lifetime and how you spent it, your wealth, whence you earned it, and our love, the people of the household (Ahl al-Bayt), so prepare yourself for that day and prepare answers for these questions.

The best of my community are those who spend away their youth in Allah s obedience, wean themselves away from the worldly pleasures and are infatuated with the Hereafter. Surely their reward upon Allah is the highest levels of Paradise.

The best of your youth are those who act like the old from among you, and the worst of your old ones are those who act like your youth.

On the Day of Resurrection, the servant will not take a step unless he is asked about four things: his life and how he spent it, his youth and how he exhausted it, his wealth, whence he earned it and how he spent it, and our love, the people of the household (Ahl al-bayt).
