Be a stranger in this world

Shaykh Fawzaan comments on the hadeeth of Ibn Umar رضي الله عنهما collected by Imaam Al Bukhaari:

{كن في الدنيا كأنك غريب أو عابر سبيل}

“Be in this world as though you are a stranger, or someone just passing through”. He says: you pass through this world to make preparations for the aakhirah (next life) to take with you provisions for this journey”.

Later on he mentions the statement of Aamirul Mumineen Ali Ibn Taalib رضي الله عنه :

{كن من ابناء الآخرة و لا تكون من ابناء الدنيا}

“Be from the children of the next life and do not be from the children of this world”.
