Sahih al-Bukhari » Book of To make the Heart Tender (Ar-Riqaq)

Chapter: If somebody reaches sixty years of age, he has no right to ask Allah for a new lease of life.

Narrated Abu Huraira ( رضي الله عنه ) : The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,

“Allah will not accept the excuse of any person whose instant of death is delayed till he is sixty years of age.”

Narrated Abu Huraira ( رضي الله عنه ) : I heard Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) saying,

“The heart of an old man remains young in two respects, i.e., his love for the world (its wealth, amusements and luxuries) and his incessant hope.”

Narrated Anas bin Malik ( رضي الله عنه ) : Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,

“The son of Adam (i.e. man) grows old and so also two (desires) grow old with him, i.e., love for wealth and (a wish for) a long life.”
