3 benefits from Sufyaan
1.) Khalf ibn Tameem reported that he heard Sufyaan say, "the vision of one's eyes is meant for this world, and the vision of one's heart is meant for the Hereafter. When a man looks with his eyes, he benefits naught. it is when he looks with his heart that he benefits.
2.)`Abdur Rahmaan ibn `Aabdullah al-Basree reported that a man said to Sufyaan, "Advise me." Sufyaan said, "Work for this world in proportion to the time you will stay in it (which does not amount to many years). And work for the Hereafter in proportion to the time you will stay in it (for eternity) -and peace (be upon you).
3.) Yousuf ibn Asbaat reported that he heard Sufyaan Ath-Thauree say, "The following three are from patience: Do not speak about a calamity that has befallen you; do not speak about your pain; and do not praise yourself."
