Resting on a sackcloth

Abdullah ibn Mas'ud (may Allah be pleased with him) reports: Once I went to the Holy Prophet (SAW). He was resting on a sackcloth, which had welted his body. Seeing this I began to weep. He said: "Why are you weeping?" I said: "These Caesars and Chosroes, the kings of Byzantium and Iran, sleep on carpets of silk and velvet and you have to take rest on sackcloth! I weep because of this." He said: "There is no need of weeping over it" (for the world is for them and for us is the hereafter). Extracted from the book "Shamail-e-Tirmidhi" by Shaikh Ahmed E. Bemat.

All the pleasures of this world are temporary. So, let us strive hard for the hereafter where Allah will grant us unimaginable forms of pleasures.
