Rich Without Faith
1 gram of gold at what price? If the earth was weighed how many grams of weight! If there is gold all the earth sale price roughly how much? Well … certainly very expensive, could be for fun seven generations it …!
Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim narrated from Anas bin Malik radhiyallahu’anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “Later in the day of Judgement disbelievers will be brought to him and asked,’ What do you think if you have all your gold content of the earth if you want to redeem ( torture) him? ‘. He replied, ‘Yes of course. “Then said to him,’ Truly first-world-you are asked something easier than that [and yet you are reluctant and still do shirk ].’.” (Narrated by Bukhari  and Muslim )
Imam Muslim narrated from Jabir ibn Abdullah radhiyallahu’anhu, he told me that once the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam market passes through some streets of the settlement, while those of [his companions] came with him. Then he passed the carcass of a goat whose ear defects (small). He took the goat, holding his ears. Then he said, “Who among you would buy at a price of one dirham?”. They replied, “We have absolutely no interest to have it. What can we do with it? “. He again asked, “Or maybe you like it when it’s free for you?”. They replied, “By Allah, even if the animal is alive is flawed, because small ears. Moreover, the goat was already dead? “He also said,” By Allah, verily the world is more contemptible in the sight of Allah than this carcass in your eyes. “(Narrated by Muslim )
Both of the above hadith tells us how the world’s wealth is of no value unless accompanied only by faith. Therefore, no matter how many properties owned by someone if not based on belief in Allah and His Messenger, then in the last world that does not benefit the property owners. As Allah ta’ala confirm this in the verse (which means): “On that day-doomsday-useless possessions and descendants except for people who turn to God with hearts survived.” (Surat ash-Syu’ara: 88 – 89).
Survivor’s heart is the heart of faith with the truth. Allah ta’ala says (which means): “Verily those who disbelieve that if they have any of the content of this earth entirely and even added a redeem semisalnya for torture on the Day of Judgement will not be accepted, and they deserve to receive a painful torment . ‘(Surah al-Mâ’idah: 36)
Allah Ta’ala also says (which means): “Verily those who disbelieve and die in a state of the disbelievers will not be accepted from one of them [the ransom of punishment they receive] although the full content of the earth in the form of gold even if it they want to redeem him . They are the ones who deserve the torment of a painful and there is no helper for them one bit. “(Surah Ali Imran: 91)
Then true faith is the source of happiness and safety despite the economic mediocre or even below the poverty line. Imam Muslim narrated from Ibn Abbas radhiyallahu’anhuma, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “I never see heaven, it turns on it is inhabited mostly by poor people. And I see hell, it turns out most of its inhabitants are women. “(Narrated by Muslim )
Difficulties and sadness of the world as anything that is felt by the poor people who keep their faith will be forgotten with a single dye pleasure paradise. Conversely, delicious as any earthly pleasure felt by those infidels in the world, it will be forgotten with a single dye punishment in hell, na’udzu billahi min forbid … Imam Muslim narrated from Anas bin Malik radhiyallahu’anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam “Later in the Day of Resurrection will be brought residents of hell who had the most delicious pleasure over the world and then he dipped in hell once dye. Then asked him, ‘O son of Adam, did you ever see the good? Do you ever feel the pleasure? “. So he replied, ‘Absolutely not, oh my Lord. “And also brought the people of Paradise are the most difficult of his life for the world, then dipped once in Paradise dye. Then asked him, ‘O son of Adam, did you ever see the trouble? Have you ever felt the trouble? ‘. So he replied, ‘Absolutely not, oh my Lord. I have never felt the trouble and have never seen trouble.. ‘”(Narrated by Muslim )
This shows us how great patience and how great the reward with Allah. Allah ta’ala says (which means): “Those who are patient it will be refined replies charity without a count.” (Surat az-Zumar: 10). Allah ta’ala says (which means): “Be patient, for Allah is with those who steadfastly persevere.” (Surah al-Anfal: 46). Allah Ta’ala also says (which means): “Allah loves those who wait.” (Surah Ali Imran: 146)
Poverty and the difficulty the economy is not fun, but if a man of patience to deal with and still maintain the values of faith in him, surely that patience will deliver it to the door of heaven. Imam Muslim narrated from Anas bin Malik radhiyallahu’anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “Heaven is filled with things that are unpleasant and hell was overwhelmed by the things that are fun (lust).” (Narrated by Muslim [ 2822])
Imam Muslim also narrates from Shuhaib radhiyallahu’anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “It’s amazing the affairs of a believer. All business is good for him. And it would not be found except in the person of a believer. If he is experiencing pleasure, she was grateful. So it is good for him. And when he’s in trouble, he was patient. So it was good for him. “(Narrated by Muslim )
If it turns out the material wealth alone did not promise happiness, sometimes even the poverty is much more to save and deliver to the true happiness, of course, a servant will no longer maintain the greedy and greedy nature of the world in his heart. But the fact still many people who forget or pretend to forget about the nature of the transitory pleasures of this world. So they were willing to sell the religion for the sake of tasting pleasures of the world that is not how.
It’s beautiful words of a poet,
“Allah has servants who scholars,
They divorce the world and fear of fitnahnya.
They notice what’s there.
When they realize that the world is not the actual residence.
So they make this world as the ocean,
pious and charitable as they use boats that sail on it. ”
