Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said to a man and he was admonishing him, “Take advantage of five before five: your youth before your old age, your health before your illness, your riches before your poverty, your leisure before your work, and your life before your death.”

Source: Shu’ab al-Imān 9575

Grade: Sahih (authentic) according to Al-Albani

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لِرَجُلٍ وَهُوَ يَعِظُهُ اغْتَنِمْ خَمْسًا قَبْلَ خَمْسٍ شَبَابَكَ قَبْلَ هَرَمِكَ وَصِحَّتَكَ قَبْلَ سَقَمِكَ وَغِنَاكَ قَبْلَ فَقْرِكَ وَفَرَاغَكَ قَبْلَ شُغُلِكَ وَحَيَاتَكَ قَبْلَ مَوْتِكَ

Al-Hassan said: "you are but a collection of days; when a day passes by, some part of you passes by".

He also said: "O son of Adam, you are but between two mounts that drive you: the day drives you to the night and the night drives you to the day, until they drive you to the Hereafter."

Dawud Al-Ta'i said: "the day and night are stages taken by people, one by one, until they reach the end of their journey, so if you can take provision from each stage to the one that follows, then do so. Soon your journey will end, sooner than you think, so take provision for your journey and accomplish your affairs, it will be a sudden thing"
