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.
