Ibn Kathir reported: Umar ibn Abdul Aziz, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Speaking in remembrance of Allah the Exalted is good, and thought upon the blessings of Allah is the best act of worship.”

Abu Sulaiman, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Thought upon the world is a veil over the Hereafter and a punishment for the people. Thought upon the Hereafter produces wisdom and life in the heart. Whoever looks to the world as his protector will come to accept its delusions.”

عن ابن كثير قَالَ عُمَرُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ رحمه الله الْكَلَامُ بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ حَسَنٌ وَالْفِكْرَةُ فِي نِعَمِ اللَّهِ أَفْضَلُ الْعِبَادَةِ

3:190 تفسير القرآن العظيم

وقال أبو سليمان رحمه الله الْفِكْرُ فِي الدُّنْيَا حِجَابٌ عَنِ الآخِرَةِ وَعُقُوبَةٌ لأَهْلِ الْوَلايَةِ وَالْفِكْرَةُ فِي الآخِرَةِ تُورِثُ الْحِكْمَةَ وَتُحْيِي الْقَلْبَ وَمَنْ نَظَرَ إِلَى الدُّنْيَا مُوَلِّيَةً صَحَّ عِنْدَهُ غُرُورُهَا
