HomeAs If You Were A Stranger › The Hadith You Were Stranger

Chapter 1. The Hadith

Ibn Umar said: Allah's Messenger took me by my shoulder and said:

"Be in this life as if you were a stranger or a traveler on a path."

And Ibn Umar used to say:

“If you reach the evening, then don’t expect to reach the morning, and if you reach the morning, don't expect to reach the evening. Take from your health before your sickness, and from your life before your death.”

[Bukhari 6416]
