“Abdullah ibn Shumait said, ‘I heard my father describing the people of the dunyaa, saying, ‘Perpetually gluttonous, lacking insight, his zeal is only for his stomach, his private parts and his skin. He says, ‘When will I wake up so I can eat and drink, play and amuse myself? When will evening come so I can sleep?’

A corpse at night, idle in the day.’’”

Az-Zuhd of Imaam Ahmad, vol. 1, p. 144.
