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.”

(Sifatus-Safwah 1/149)
