Can you provide the reference for this:
Sayyiduna Abud Darda (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said:
“Know that a little wealth which suffices you is better than an abundance of wealth that distracts you [from Allah]”
Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah (rahimahullah) has recorded this as the statement of Sayyiduna Abud Darda (radiyallahu ‘anhu), as part of a longer narration.
(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah: 35722. Also see: Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 1 pg. 212)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
