Imam Ahmad use to favour what is less hoping to reduce what [he’ll be] accounted for [on the day of Resurrection] [1].

Al Marzawi said: I heard Abu Abdullah saying:

Whatever is made less from during this life becomes less to be Accounted for [on the day of Resurrection] [2].

كان الإمام أحمد يحب التقلل طلبا لخفة الحساب. قال المرزوي: سمعت أبا عبد الله يقول: ما قل من الدنيا كان أقل للحساب.ـ
