Hadith on Wealth: Less wealth means easier reckoning on Judgment Day

Muhammad ibn Labid reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Two things are hated by the son of Adam. He hates death, although it is better for the believer than tribulation, and he hates to have little wealth, although it means his reckoning will be easier.

عَنْ مَحْمُودِ بْنِ لَبِيدٍ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ اثْنَتَانِ يَكْرَهُهُمَا ابْنُ آدَمَ الْمَوْتُ وَالْمَوْتُ خَيْرٌ لِلْمُؤْمِنِ مِنْ الْفِتْنَةِ وَيَكْرَهُ قِلَّةَ الْمَالِ وَقِلَّةُ الْمَالِ أَقَلُّ لِلْحِسَابِ
