Yahya Ibn Mu'aadh Ar-Raazee~(Allah be pleased with him) stated:

'This worldly life is the Devil's intoxicant 'Khamr' !

Whoever is intoxicated by it
will not regain consciousness
until they are in the ranks
of the Dead...! in a state of regret
among the losers. '

'The intoxicating effect of loving this world is far more potent than the intoxication that results from drinking alcohol by a long way...{!}

The one who is intoxicated by this, will not gain his senses until he is in the darkness of his grave !!!

and... if he regains his senses...
and the effects of this cease,
while he is living then, he will surely appreciate the extent of the intoxication that
this worldly life can cause and that
it is more severe than Alcohol...!

The love of this world is the root of all sins and the source of them...

The love of this world and leadership is that which has filled the Hellfire with its inhabitants {!}
However... the practice of abstinence as it relates to the life of this world and leadership is that which has filled Paradise with its inhabitants."

By Allah, the scholars of Islam, or the doctors of the hearts, have spoken the truth; this is truly
An Epidemic...{!}

Even some non-Muslims are now attesting to the fact that materialism has brought nothing but misery to the world, and they have defined this disease as 'Affluenza'!

However, they fail to understand that true happiness can only be achieved through belief in
Allah and His Messenger
(peace be upon him).

The Prophet (sallallahu alaihiwasallam) said that seeking knowledge is a way to Paradise. He (sallallahu alaihiwasallam) said: "Whoever follows a path in the pursuit of knowledge, Allah will make a path to Paradise easy for him."
