“take a provision (with you) for the journey, but the best provision is At-Taqwa (piety, righteousness). So fear Me, O men of understanding!”
Surah al-Baqarah (2): 197
Al-‘Aashi, the poet wrote:
“When you travel without any provisions
and then, after death, meet someone who has,
you will regret that you are not like him
and that you did not prepare as he did”
another poet wrote:
“Death is a sea whose waves covet
and devoures all the ploys of the swimmer.
O nafs! I am talking to you so listen
to the advice of a concerned well-wisher.
Nothing will accompany man to his grave,
save Taqwa and good deeds”
