In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Yoonus Bin Ubayd [rahimahullaah] said: “I am amazed by three statements! I am amazed by a statement of Muwarraq Al-Ajali, who said: ‘I never said anything during anger, which I regretted during times of happiness’. I am amazed by a statement of Muhammad Ibn Seereen, who said: ‘I do not envy anyone for some worldly thing; for if he is going to be amongst the people of paradise, then how can I envy him for something of the worldly life, whilst he is destined for Paradise?! And if he is going to be amongst the people of the hell fire, then how can I envy him for something of the worldly life, whilst he is destined for the Hellfire?!’ And I am amazed by a statement of Hassaan Bin Abee Sinaan, who said: ‘There is nothing easier for me than Wara; for if something is doubtful to me I leave it.’”

Wara – the fear a person has that keeps him away from doubtful matters which he fears will ruin his afterlife
