"Today, it is deed and no account; tomorrow, it will be account and no deeds."


"Today, it is deed and no account; tomorrow, it will be account and no deeds."

He said: Abu Bakr Muhammad b. Umar al-Je’abi reported to me from al-Fadhl b. al-Habbab al-Jamhiy, who reported from Muslim b. Abdillah al-Basriy, who reported from his father, who reported from Muhammad b. Abdul Rahman al-Nahdiy, who reported from Sha’bah, from Salemah b. Kuhayl, from Habbah al-Araniy who said:

I heard Amirul Mo’mineen Ali b. Abi Talib, peace be upon him, say: "I fear for you about two things: long ambitions and the submission to base desire. As for the long ambitions, they cause you to forget the next world; and as for obedience to your desires, they prevent you from (following) the Truth. Surely, this world passes with its back turned to you, and the next world arrives facing you. And they both have their sons. So, be the sons of the next world and do not be the sons of this world. For today, it is (your) deed and no account; and tomorrow, it will be account (for your acts) and no deeds."
