True Value

Posted By Snow at 5/15/2012

Your true wealth is in the hereafter

"O people! The dunya (world) will come to an end and you will be carried from it to an abode which will not wane or disappear. Go to it with the best of your deeds.

I look back and see myself among the early Muslims with the Messenger of Allah . We had no food then apart from the leaves of trees and our lips would fester. One day I found a burdah (بردة). I tore it in two and shared it with Sad ibn Abi Waqqas. I made an aazar with one half and he did the same with the other half.

Here we are today.

There is not one of us but he is an amir of one of the garrison towns. I seek Allah's protection lest I become great in my own estimation and little in the sight of Allah ..."

- Otbah bin Ghazwan
Founder & Governor of Basrah, Iraq (7th century)

The Prophet said, "Who among you considers the wealth of his heirs dearer to him than his own wealth?" They replied, "O Allah's Apostle! There is none among us but loves his own wealth more." The Prophet said, "So his wealth is whatever he spends (in Allah's Cause) during his life (on good deeds) while the wealth of his heirs is whatever he leaves after his death." [Sahih Bukhari 8.76.449]
