If it were not for three things I wish not to remain in the dunya:

1. Placing my face down in prostration to my Creator across the alternation of the day and the night, preparing for the (true) life to come;

2. Experiencing thirst during the hottest part of the day (due to fasting);

3. And sitting with a people who select and choose their words (i.e. are careful with their speech) the way fruit is selected.
