Let not the cares of this world drive your peace away...

Whenever you are tempted by this world,
picture a derelict covered with filth whose noxious
odor is intolerable. Reviled you will shut your
senses to the offensive sight. In the like manner
stay away from abomination of sin that may
deface your purity. The Lord shall bless you
with much bounty; therefore let not the cares
of this world drive your peace away.

- Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jillani, Futhul Ghaib, p. 20
