حدثنا أبو بكر بن مالك ، ثنا عبد الله بن ص: 234 ] أحمد بن حنبل ، حدثني أبي ، ثنا سليمان بن حيان ، ثنا زياد – مولى لقريش عن معاوية بن قرة، قال : قال معاذ بن جبل لابنه : يا بني إذا صليت صلاة فصل صلاة مودع ، لا تظن أنك تعود إليها أبدا ، واعلم يا بني أن المؤمن يموت بين حسنتين ، حسنة قدمها ، وحسنة أخرها

Mu’adh Ibn Jabal (رضي الله عنه) once said to his son, “My dear son, when you stand up in prayers, do so as a departing person bidding farewell to this world, and do not assume that you will have another chance to pray again. My dear son, know that a believer dies between two deeds, one he offers for the present day (wherein he will immediately garner its blessings, and the second deed he offers for the hearafter, (and that is when he will reap ultimate benefits).
