Ibnul Mubaarak said that Sufyaan told him that, Ibraaheem at-Taymee said …
كم بينكم وبين القوم؟ أقبلت عليهم الدنيا فهربوا منها، وأدبرت عنكم فاتبعتموها.
“How far (and different) you are from them [meaning the Companions] !
The world [and its delights] approached them; and they ran away from it.
While it is running away from you; and you are chasing it !!”
