Abstinence from the world

The Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

“Abstinence from the world is not by denouncing as prohibited that which is permitted or by neglecting wealth to go to waste. On the contrary, abstinence means that you do not place greater reliance on what you have in your own hands than you do on what lies in Allah’s hands, and when misfortune strikes, you have such faith in the reward for bearing it with patience that you wish it could remain with you.”

Hadith of at-Tirmidhi (rahimuAllah T’ala), on the authority of Abu Dharr al-Ghifari (may Allah swt be pleased with him)
