How to be in this world

While your hands are about their work, your heart should be with your Beloved. Let the whole world belong to you while you belong to God.

You should work for this world as if you are immortal, while preparing for the Hereafter as if you will die tomorrow.

Treat everyone well. Have compassion for every creature. Be just, loyal, honest, hard-working and upright. That is how you must be, for that is how believers are.
