at that time, The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam was sitting with his companions Radhiyallahu ‘anhum ajma’in. SSeveral moment later, there came a male of the poor. He came in one of the wealthiest of the society.
Approached by the poor, rich man looks shy and attractive dress, so as not touched by the poor.
Seeing the incident, the Prophet was asked the rich, “Do you worry if your wealth will move him, and poverty will move to you?”
The rich even asked, “Ya Rasulullah, whether it’s bad fortune? ”
“Yes,” replied the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam, “The wealth really invite to Hell, while poverty man took her to heaven.”
Asked the rich man to the Prophet, “If so, how can the wealth that can save me?”
The trick, bright noble Prophet, “You give him help (the poor).”
“Then,” said the rich, “I’ll do it.”
Hear the answer of the rich, the poor also said, “I am,” he said with authority, “did not want help.”
The Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam replied as mentioned by Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jauziyah in’ Uddatush shabirin, “Then, ask forgiveness and pray for your brother.”
Wealth, in this history, could destroy its owner because there is vanity in it. The rich feel more noble than the poor. It was marked by the poor to escape when approached. Yet the poor do not want material help from the rich.
Lessons second, the poor patient with whatever is given to him. The patience shown by not easily accept a helping hand from the rich, but rather seek sustenance as best he could begun all abilities. Obviously, this is an honor that dignity.
Finally, should the Muslims pray. Prayer is one of the rights of fellow Muslims and proof of love. Pray also be a powerful tool that Allah met all of our needs. Because, Allah Almighty will provide something similar to the prayers of a servant to his fellow Muslims.
May Allah Almighty make us servants are grateful if given the abundant riches, and servants who work diligently because Allaah and be patient if given a test and the gift of poverty.
