‘It has not been revealed to me that I amass wealth and be a trader’

Question

Is this authentic?

ما أوحي إلي أن أجمع المال وأكون من التاجرين ولكن أوحي إلي أن فسبح بحمد ربك وكن من الساجدين واعبد ربك حتى يأتيك اليقين

 

Answer

This Hadith has been recorded with two slightly weak chains that corroborate each other. The Hadith is suitable to quote.

(Tafsir Ibn Marduyah; Refer: Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 1595 and Sharhus Sunnah, Hadith: 4036,Refer: Taqribut Tahdhib, 2771)

 

Translation

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“It has not been revealed to me that I amass wealth and be a trader. Rather it was revealed to me that glorify your Rabb with praise, be among those who prostrate and worship your Rabb until what is certain [death] comes to you.”

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
