Imam Haddad on Love for Wealth and Fame

Remove the love of dinars and of dirhams from your heart until they become as pebbles and sand in your eyes. Remove the wish to be thought highly of from your heart until your are indifferent to people’s praise and condemnation, and to whether they are attracted or repulsed by you. For the love of prominence is more harmful than that of money, and both indicate desire for the world.
– Imām ‘Abdullāh ibn ‘Alawī al-Ḥaddād Ra
