Sa'eed bin Al-Jurairi said, "They used to make the first part of their day to accomplish their [worldly] requirements and reform their living, and they would leave the end of the day to worship their Lord and perform their prayers." [Tahdhib al-Hiliya, 2/275]

The Salaf drew the perfect balance of taking that which beneficial from this world and carrying into the Hereafter. A balance that helped them pursue their living in order to migrate at the end of the night to worship. There was no excessiveness or burden in their lives. Their target was clear; their path was achievable. The world was nothing else but a garden where they could plant their good deeds such as to see its fruits in the Hereafter. Their nights were special as it was their soul's delight. It was a perfect balance..
