SubhanaAllah, how true is the saying from Jesus (as) in regards to this world... Why is it so difficult for us? Why can't we be content and turn our backs to this world like Prophet Ayoub (as)? Instead Ahmed Al Hasan (as) reminds us that in this second physical test, us as people are no better than the worms Prophet Ayoub (as) was pushing back in, in fact even worst than the worms. May Allah forgive us and remove our darkness and sins from the pages of our existence, perhaps we may become mindful. Allahuma salle ala Muhammad, wa ala Muhammad, al A'Emma wal Madiyeen, wa salam Tasleema.
Dua of Abstainers, Psalms of Islam by the fourth Imam (as), Ahmed Al Hasan (as) said it is a salvation for us in this life and the next, for us to memorize it, work with it as much as possible and understand it:
"My God, Thou hast settled us in an abode which has dug for us pits of deception, and Thou hast fastened by the hands of death in the snares of that abodes treachery, in Thee we seek asylum from the tricks of its guile, and to Thee we hold fast, lest we be deluded by the glitter of its ornaments. It destroys its pursuers and ruins its settlers, it is stuffed with blights and loaded with calamities. My God induce us to renounce it, and keep us safe from it by Thy giving success and Thy preservation from sin. Strip from us the robes of opposing Thee, attend to our affairs through Thy good sufficiency. Amplify our increase from the boundless plenty of Thy Mercy. Be liberal in our gifts from the overflow of Thy Grants, plant in our hearts the trees of Thy love, complete for us the lights of Thy knowledge. Give us to taste the sweetness of Thy pardon and the pleasure of Thy forgiveness. Gladden our eyes on the Day of meeting Thee, with the vision of Thee. Dislodge the love of this world from our spirits, just as Thou hast done for the Righteous, Thy selected friends and for the pious, those whom Thou hast singled out. O Most Merciful of the merciful, O Most Generous of the generous."
For those who fear Allah, He prepares a way out and He provides for him from sources he could never expect. And if anyone puts his trust in Allah, sufficient is Allah for him, for surely Allah will accomplish his purpose; verily for all things has Allah appointed a due proportion.
