Abundance of wealth before Qiyamah

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

“Qiyamah will not arise until wealth becomes so abundant that a man will not find anyone to give his Zakah”

 

Answer

This Hadith is recorded in Sahih Muslim and is therefore authentic.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Qiyamah will not occur until wealth becomes abundant and overflowing, so much so that a man will take out the Zakah of his wealth but will not find anyone to accept it from him…”

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1012)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
