`Abdullah bin Ash-Shikhkhir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
I came to the Prophet (PBUH) while
he was reciting (Surat At-Takathur 102):
"The mutual rivalry (for hoarding worldly things) preoccupy you. Until you visit the graves (i.e., till you die). Nay!
You shall come to know! Again nay! You shall come to know! Nay! If you knew with a sure knowledge (the end
result of hoarding, you would not have been occupied in worldly things). Verily, you shall see the blazing Fire
(Hell)! And again, you shall see it with certainty of sight! Then (on that Day) you shall be asked about the delights
(you indulged in, in this world)!''
(After reciting) he (PBUH) said,
"Son of adam says: `My wealth, my wealth.' Do you own of your wealth other than
what you eat and consume, and what you wear and wear out, or what you give in Sadaqah (charity) (to those who
deserve it), and that what you will have in stock for yourself.''
This Hadith enjoins that if a person is given wealth, he should spend it in the ways liked by Allah
because it is this Sadaqah which will be a valuable treasure in the Afterlife. Whatever else he consumes in this
world, will finish or rot in this world and will be of no avail in Hereafter.

`Abdullah bin Mughaffal (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A man came to the Prophet (PBUH) and
said, "O Messenger of Allah! By Allah, I love you.'' He (PBUH) said,
"Think about what you are saying.
'' The man
repeated thrice, "I swear by Allah that I love you.'' He (Prophet (PBUH)) said,
"If you love me, you should be ready
for acute poverty; because poverty comes to those who love me, faster than a flood flowing towards its destination.''

K`ab bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Two hungry
wolves sent in the midst of a flock of sheep are no more destructive to them than a man's greed for wealth and fame
is to his Deen.''
The havoc played by wealth, rank and position, which have been mentioned in this Hadith, can be
seen everywhere today. Even some `Ulama' and self-proclaimed pious men have a craze for these things and they
have not been able to save themselves from the ruin caused by it. May Allah save us from these evils. Greed for
wealth and fame are doubtless detrimental to religion as preference of the life of the world over religion is explicit in
such a trivial pursuit.

`Abdullah bin Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) slept on a straw
mat and got up with the marks left by it on his body. Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) said, "O
Messenger of Allah! Would that you make us spread out a soft bedding for you.'' He (PBUH) replied,
"What have I
to do with the world? I am like a rider who had sat under a tree for its shade, then went away and left it.''
Beside mentioning the piety of the Prophet (PBUH), this Hadith tells in a very eloquent manner the
reality of this world by means of an example.
