Contentment is true wealth

Question

Is this narration authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Richness is not having many belongings, but richness is contentment of the soul”

 

Answer

Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6446, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1051)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
