WHILE I AM A SLEEP

4 Feb

كان مالك بن دينار يقول : والله لو استطعت أن لا أنام ما نمت، فقيل : لماذا يا أبا يحيى، قال : أخشى أن يأتيني ملك الموت وأنا نائم ولا أريد أن يأتيني إلا وأنا على عمل صالح

Malik ibn Dinar used to say, “if by Allah, I was able, I would not sleep.” When asked why, he said, “I fear that the angel of death would come to me while I am a sleep and I do not want him to come except that I am doing a good deed.”
