One day, he passed by a group of Advocates (Al-Ansar) who were talking and laughing as hard as they can, so he said: "Silence. O you, if you were deceived by having hope in long lives and doing less goodness, then visit the graves, know that all shall resurrect and remember death, the killer of all lusts."
