Hadith on Rizq: Let him not seek provision by sinful means

Abu Umamah reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Verily, the Holy Spirit inspired in my mind that a soul will never die until it finishes its term and consumes its provision. Thus, be graceful in seeking provision and let not one of you allow the delay provision compel him to seek it by disobedience. Verily, Allah does not grant what is with him but by obedience.

عَنْ أَبِي أُمَامَةَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِنَّ رَوْحَ الْقُدُسِ نَفَثَ فِي رُوعِيَ أَنَّ نَفْسًا لَنْ تَمُوتَ حَتَّى تَسْتَكْمِلَ أَجَلَهَا وَتَسْتَوْعِبَ رِزْقَهَا فَأَجْمِلُوا فِي الطَّلَبِ وَلا يَحْمِلَنَّ أَحَدَكُمُ اسْتِبْطَاءُ الرِّزْقِ أَنْ يَطْلُبَهُ بِمَعْصِيَةٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يُنَالُ مَا عِنْدَهُ إِلا بِطَاعَتِهِ
