On the authority of Ibn Umar (ra) who said: The Messenger of Allah (saw) took me by the shoulder and said: “Be in this world as though you were a stranger or a traveler/wayfarer.” Ibn Umar used to say: “When evening comes do not expect (to live till) morning, and when morning comes, do not expect (to live till) evening. Take from your health (a preparation) for your illness. And from your life for your death.” (Bukhari)

Abu Abdullah Jabir bin Abdullah al-Ansari (ra) reported that a man questioned the Messenger of Allah (saw), saying: “Do you see, if I pray the prescribed (prayers), fast during Ramadhan, treat the lawful as permissible and treat the forbidden as prohibited, but do nothing more than that, shall I enter Paradise?” He (the Prophet) answered: “Yes.” (Muslim)

Abdullah ibn Abbas (ra) has said that “Some people used to give so much sadaqah that nothing would remain with them even for eating and they would be compelled to look for sadaqah from others. It was for this reason that the verse was revealed:’ And they ask thee what they ought to spend. Say that which is superfluous.’” (Al-Baqarah: 219).
