Pearl of Wisdom

to his companions, 'Which of you loves the money of his heirs more than his own money?' They said, ?O Messenger of Allah, we all love our own money more than the money of our heirs.' He said, 'One's own money is that which is put forward and the money of one's heir [i.e. that which we save and not spend in charity] is that which he leaves behind.'

Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa [sawa]
al-Targhib wa al-Tarhib, v. 2, p. 50, no. 8

Sermon 144 About this world and on innovation (bid`ah)

O' people, you are, in this world, the target for the arrows of death. With every drinking there is choking and with every eating there is suffocation. You do not get any benefit in it except by foregoing another (benefit) and no one among you advances in age by a day except by the taking away of a day from his life. Nothing more is added to his eating unless it reduces what was there before. No mark appears for him unless a mark disappears. Nothing new comes into being unless the new becomes old. No new crop comes up unless a crop has been reaped. Those roots are gone whose off-shoots we are. How can an off-shoot live after the departure of its root?

No innovation is introduced unless one sunnah is forsaken, keep away from innovations and stick to the broad road. Surely the old tested ways are the best and the innovated ones are bad.
