Remembering death decreases jealousy


Could you provide the reference for this:

من أكثر ذكر الموت قل فرحه وقل حسده



Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) has recorded this as the statement of Sayyiduna Abud Darda (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 1 pg. 220. Also see: Kitabuz Zuhd Of Imam ‘Abdullah ibn Al Mubarak, pg. 464)



Whoever remembers death frequently, his rejoicing and jealousy will reduce



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
