Once Ibn ‘Umar -RA- saw a man saying, “Where are the men who renounced the worldly ends (ie zahidun) and preferred (the acts which will be rewarded in) the Hearafter?” Ibn ‘Umar pointed out towards the graves of Prophet -SAW-, Abu Bakr and ‘Umar ibn Khtattab -Radiallahu anhuma- and said, “Do you ask about them?”
