‘Where are the men of fine, clear faces? Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (radiAllahu anhu)

 

It is recorded of Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (may Allah, Exalted is He! be pleased with him) that he was in the habit of saying in his sermons,

 ‘Where are the men of fine, clear faces? Those who were delighted with their youth? Where are the kings that built the cities, and fortified them with walls?

 

Where are they that used to receive victory on the fields of battle? Time has swept them away, and they have gone on to the shadows of the graves. So make haste! Make haste! And be saved! Be saved!’

[ Al Ghazali, The Remembrance Of Death And The Afterlife, page 24-25]
