Indifference of Strangers to Dunya

In this world the believer is like a stranger, he does not despair when it humiliates him and neither does he covet its grandeur.  The people are in one state, and he is in a totally different state.

—Al-Ḥasan al-Baṣrī [d 110H/728CE]

(Read on pg 33, Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali and Abu Bakr al-Ajurri, The Journey of the Strangers. Daar as-Sunnah Publishers. Birmingham: 2009.)
