Pearl of Wisdom
'I have never seen anything catch up with something faster than old age catches up with a believer, for verily it is a source of dignity for the believer in this world and a brilliant light for him on the Day of Resurrection. Allah, most High, honoured Abraham (AS) with it [old age], who said, 'What is this , my Lord?' to which Allah replied, 'This is dignity', so Abraham said, ?O My Lord, increase me in dignity then.'
