What is the reference for the following?

“The son of Adam grows old. But two things always remain young; Desire for life and desire for wealth.”



Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has also recorded this narration with variation in the wording.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1047, Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6421)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
