Another amazing Jewel by one of the most underrated scholars of all time.
Imam as-Samarqandi related that Yahya bin Mu’adh, May Allah have mercy upon their souls, said:
“Abandoning excesses in life is hard, but abandoning Paradise is harder.
Know that the bridal-money of Paradise requires abandoning of this life.”
