The Poor Enters Paradise Before the Wealthy

the poor before the rich

If you been tested by Allah with poverty, be patient and don’t be sad. Look at the bright side. The poor will enter paradise before the rich people!

A hadith from Abu Huraira (may Allah blesses him), that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said,

يَدْخُلُ فُقَرَاءُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ الْجَنَّةَ قَبْلَ أَغْنِيَائِهِمْ بِنِصْفِ يَوْمٍ وَهُوَ خَمْسُ مِائَةِ عَامٍ

“The poor Muslims will enter Paradise before the rich by half of a day, the length of which is five hundred years” [at-Tirmidhi, al-Albaani says that the hadith is sahih].

Rich muslim will enter the heaven longer after poor muslim because Allah will do the hisaab (counting) of his wealth longer.
