Being mindful of Allah in ones Youth

  Whoever is mindful of Allah when he is young and strong, Allah will take care of him when he is old and has become weak, and will bless him with good hearing, eyesight, strength and reasoning. One of the scholars who lived beyond the age of a hundred years and enjoyed good strength and reasoning, jumped up in a lively manner one day and was asked about that. He said: “I kept these physical faculties from sin when I was young and Allah has preserved them for me now that I am old.” 

[Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali in Jami’ al-‘Uloom wa’l-Hukam, 1/186]
