HADITH OF THE DAY: WHAT HAVE I TO DO WITH THIS WORLD?

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) once slept on a reed mat and got up with the marks of it on his body. His companions saw the marks and expressed concern that they should have made him more comfortable. The Prophet replied: “What have I to do with this world? In relation to this world, I am like a rider who shades himself under a tree and then (continues on his way).”

Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1351
