Stranger...

Abdullah bin Umar (r.a.) reported: Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) took hold of my shoulders and said,

" Be in the world like a stranger or a wayfarer."

Ibn Umar (r.a.) used to say: "When you survive till the evening, do not expect to live until the morning; and when you survive until the morning, do not expect to live until the evening; (do good deeds) when you are in good health before you fall sick, and (do good deeds) as long as you are alive before death strikes."

Sahih Al Bukhari Hadith 471 Chapter 55 Excellence of Ascetic life
