Difference of opinion among the Imams can be a mercy

Q 8: What is the meaning of the Hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him): “O Allah! Make me live a poor one. Make me die a poor one. And gather me (on Resurrection Day) among the group of the poor.” ?


A: The Hadith mentioned above is Da‘if (weak). If we suppose that it is an authentic Hadith, then it means a request to Allah to make him lead a modest life away from the causes of Fitnah (temptation). (Part No. 4; Page No. 406) Richness mostly produces arrogance, and leads to falling into temptations and sins. And Allah knows best.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
