Something Better Than Wealth

better than wealth

Nothing wrong with being rich and wealthy if you can use you wealth wisely, in the path of Allah. But be noticed that there are something more valuable than wealth.

A hadith from Abdullah ibn Khubayb (may Allah blesses him), that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ says:

بَأْسَ بِالْغِنَى لِمَنِ اتَّقَى وَالصِّحَّةُ لِمَنِ اتَّقَى خَيْرٌ مِنَ الْغِنَى وَطِيبُ النَّفْسِ مِنَ النِّعَمِ

“There is nothing wrong with being wealthy for one who is mindful of Allah, yet good health for one who is mindful is better than wealth. And cheerfulness is among the blessings” [Ibn Majah, classed as Saheeh by al-Albani].

Health is one of the blessings that we often forget. So be a grateful Muslim.
