The Son of Aadam is urged to Repent from That Blameworthy Eagerness and Love for Worldly Possessions!
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Ibn Abbaas (radiyallaahu-anhumaa) said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) say, ‘’If the son of Aadam had a valley filled with wealth, he would love to have (another one) similar to it. Nothing can suffice the son of Aadam’s soul except dust. And Allaah forgives the one who repents [Saheeh Muslim’ Hadeeth number 1049]
Few Reminders Related to The Above Hadeeth
The son of Aadam does not cease being eager for the Dunyah until death and thus his mouth is filled with the dust in his grave.
Allaah accepts the repentance of a person who repents from that blameworthy eagerness for the Dunyah (worldly possessions).
This hadeeth censures blameworthy eagerness for the Dunyah, the (blameworthy) love of gathering worldly things and being desirous of them.
