Ask Allaah for a strong desire in the first and moderation in the second

Abu Khaythama narrated to us, (saying): Jareer related to us from Layth from Mujaahid from Ibn Abbaas, (that): ”There are two types of people with a strong desire and the strong desire of each one of them will not end—the one who has a strong desire in pursuit of knowledge, his desire will not end.  And the one who has a strong desire in pursuit of the worldly (things, affairs etc.), his desire will not end.”
