Contentment and Zuhd

as salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh..

Shaykh Muhammad al-Ameen ash-Shinqeetee who died on 17/12/1393H (rahimahullaah) took very little from this worldly life, and I used to see him and he could not differentiate between the values of different (notes within the same) currency, and he once said to me: “I came from my country (Shinqeet (Mauritania]) and with me is a treasure that is very seldom found in the possession of anyone, and it is contentment, and if I wanted high status, I would have known the way to achieve it, but I chose not to exchange this worldly life for the hereafter, and I do not give my knowledge to attain world worldly desires.”
