when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies
Umar bin Khattab once said to Al-Ahnaf bin Qais:
“O Ahnaf, the more one laughs, the less dignity will he possess.
Whoever jokes (excessively) is a person who will be taken lightly.
Whoever does something frequently will known by that thing.
Whoever speaks often, errs often; the less modesty he will possess;
Whomever has a low level of modesty will also have a low level of piety; and
when one has a low level of piety, then his heart dies.”
