Pearl of Wisdom

in a letter he wrote to one of his companions, 'Seize what you have left of your life, and do not keep [deferring] saying, 'Tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow', for verily those before you were ruined because of their persistent wishful thinking and their procrastination, until suddenly the command of Allah [i.e. death] overtook them while they were heedless.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Ibid. v. 73, p. 75, no. 39

Question : #140 Category: Shia Sunni Dialogue
Subject: different Adhan in Shia and Sunni
Question: Why do the Shia and the Sunni schools recite the adhaan differently, when did this division come into play?
Answer: There are different traditions that the Shia and Sunni sects refer to. The Shia refer to traditions of the Prophet (s) and the Infallible Imams (a) while the Sunnis refer to traditions of the Prophet (s) and companions. It is a popular view that Umar inserted the phrase 'Prayer is better than sleep' into the adhan for the morning prayer - which the Shia reject. Also, the Shia have the phrases 'I bear witness that Ali is the waliyullah' which is considered to be recommended to state and not an actual sentence of the adhan.
