Zuhd  means to abstain from this world to gain closeness to Allaah. A beautiful pdf specially for me because I felt like I have been consumed by this world and it caused great distress. I needed to be focusing on the Akhirah and not the pleasure of this dunya. This book has tremendously opened my eyes. The last line of this pdf ends with saying

”So whatever does not come to the slave, know that Allah has not decreed that for him.”

Basically if this worldly life causes me sorrow I am going to utter from now on ”I will belittle this world and abstain from it to get closer to my Creator.”
