Hazrath Shaddaad (R.A.) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said: “The wise person is he who keeps his desires under control and strives for the life after death (he does good actions and shuns all sin). The foolish person is he who follows his desires (even if they contradict the dictates of Shariah) and hopes for the best from Allah Ta’ala” (Tirmizi).
