Make the most of five things before five things

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) says:

O ‘Abādhar! Make the most of five things before five things: youth before oldness, health before illness, wealth before neediness, leisure before occupation, and life before death.

یا أَباذَرٍّ اغْتَنِمْ خَمساً قَبلَ خَمسٍ: شَبابَکَ قَبلَ هَرَمِکَ، وَصِحَّتَکَ قَبلَ سُقمِکَ، وَغِناکَ قَبلَ فَقرِکَ، وَفَراغَکَ قَبلَ شُغلِکَ، وَحَیاتَکَ قَبلَ مَوتِکَ.

Wasael al-Shi’a, vol. 1, p. 114, p. 285
